Chiseled Chest & Strong Upper Body – Push-Up Variation Workout

It’s simple…push-ups work! When you do push-ups, you’re working your core, chest, and arms AND you can do push-ups anywhere!

The best part – you can adjust the intensity of your push-ups, adjust your arm and leg positions, and adjust the elevation to add lots of variations that target different areas.

EXERCISES 1) Slow down four count push-up: start in standard push-up, then count down to four while lowering down, and push back up at a fast pace 2) Fly push-up: start in standard push-up position to start, then one hand will “step out” wide, return, and then repeat with the other hand 3) 3-in-1 push-up: start in standard push-up position, then go half-way down, come all the way up, then go all the way down, half way up, then back down, then all the way up – that’s one repetition! 4) Push-ups ’til failure: enough said!

Do this workout and make sure to write down the exercise, the date, and how many repetitions you were able to do of each exercise. Next week do the same workout and try …

The one thing I do to lose weight

I put on 5 pounds while I was on vacation.


Less movement and more food. Duh.

However, unlike being home I was lucky enough to be enjoying foods, flavors and dishes I’d never had before. Like eating cappellacci pasta stuffed with sweet pumpkin in Ferrara Italy, piadine with fig jam and soft cheese in Emilia Romania, deer meat risotto in Switzerland, and ricotta & honey pastries in the outdoor market in Freiburg Germany.

I may be a smart lady but it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to unearth the wonder of my five pound increase.

How do I feel about these five extra pounds?

I’m glad you asked.

I HATE not feeling like myself. *THAT* is what’s annoying. I don’t give a shit about the weight. I just don’t feel like me. You know?

It’s the healthy small things in my day that make me feel connected to myself, & happy with me. Like walking every night after dinner & listing to a podcast, eating my favorite breakfast of vanilla Siggi’s yogurt + frozen macadamia nuts on the floor …
