Push-ups are an integral part of the RECON exercise routine. It makes sense, because it engages so many muscles at once, targeting the chest, back, shoulders, and BONUS –the core!
The RECON Push-Up Routine:
If you’re not up for a full push-up yet, you can make it easier by either using a wider stance with your feet, or starting on your knees instead.
Week 1: do 5 push-ups, walk 5 minutes, then do 5 more push-ups.
Week 2: do 10 push-ups, walk 10 minutes, then do 10 more push-ups.
Week 3: do 15 push-ups, walk 15 minutes, then do 15 more push-ups.
Week 4: do 20 push-ups, walk 20 minutes, then do 20 more push-ups.
(While push-ups are not always a favorite among the ladies, it’s a great exercise to add to your walking routine too!)
