As a professional athlete and Olympic Hopeful, I know how important it is that my body stays healthy long after I am done training. Creating challenges for myself is important to gage improvement. Each time I create a new challenge, I give myself an opportunity grow and improve.
I LOVE push-ups. They are so challenging, and they strengthen everything! For wrestling, it’s important to have a very strong core and to learn to control your motion when you are fatigued.
Find out how many push-ups you can do in one set. Can you add one more? A small improvement will lead to amazing improvements over time.
Set a goal that is realistic for you, and makes you feel great!
Stick to your challenge for at least 3 weeks, then get excited for a new challenge!
