The Healthy Life: The 5 Day Get Moving Challenge Day 3

Day 3:


Push-ups and Sit-ups

Welcome to day 3 of the Get Moving Challenge. Did you go walking yesterday? How did it go? 

Today we’re going to be doing a few push-ups and sit-ups. Don’t worry, you’re not going to kill yourself!

Fitness Point:

It’s time for push-ups and sit ups, your favorite! Now, don’t worry. We’re going to start small. You’re not doing 100 push-ups today. We’re going to start with just five push-ups and five sit ups.

If you can’t do that many, do 3. Or 2. Or 1. You just have to do it!

Just a quick note on the proper form for push-ups:


  • Keep your head and neck straight
  • Keep your shoulders and back stable
  • Keep your hands below your shoulders
  • Put pressure on the outside of your hands
  • Keep your hips and torso straight
  • Use a controlled tempo

Don’t freak out if you can’t do all these things. Imperfect action is still action.

Here’s a video to give you a visual representation:


Okay, time to get this done! Get down on the floor and do those push-ups!

Remember, you’re trying to build a tiny habit here. If one is all you can do, that’s great. Do one today, one tomorrow, one the next day, and soon you’ll be able to do two. Build the habit and keep it going.

Tomorrow we’re going to be doing some body weight squats. Don’t worry if you don’t know how. I’ll show you.
