Can you beat Mr Davies in the press up challenge?
Send your results and evidence to your teacher via TEAMS.
Who in your family can do the most?
Can you increase the challenge further by making the movement more difficult?
Start at the top of a plank/front support with full body tension from neck to toes.
Flex at the elbow and move towards the floor (also known as an eccentric contraction), touch your chest to the floor and then press your body (concentric contraction) in a straight line back to the top of the plank.
Repeat as many times as possible in a minute.
Note: There are number of ways to modify the press up which are shown in the video clips. Whatever method you choose to use in test 1, make sure you adopt the same approach in test 2 to measure improvement.
