Whether you’re a child or an adult, a fundamentally sound push-up can be difficult. After all, many of us simply haven’t developed the necessary muscle strength to successfully push our body weight from a down position up into a high plank. We need to realize that this is absolutely fine. We can’t run before we learn to walk. There are several simple exercises that I refer to as the evolution of the push-up, that can assist us in developing the necessary strength, allowing us to eventually perform a perfect traditional push-up.
The Build a Better Push-up 30-Day Challenge allows you to take ownership of your workout. You can select a level that fits your ability. Remember! A good fit doesn’t mean an easy fit. A good fit means while focusing on proper form, you are challenged to accomplish each repetition. You want the final few repetitions of each set to be a grind. This is where you develop the strength for your push-up to evolve.
To conclude, the BUILD A BETTER PUSH-UP CHALLENGE serves as a tool for us to develop the necessary strength to complete one, or even several push-ups with precise form.

Depending on the grade level, I will usually “play” Fitness Blast for 4-7 minutes. Prior to the workout, I remind the students to look at the GIFS in order to assist them in using proper pace and form.

I recently created over 30 exercise GIFS for our PE classes and online learners. I added many of those GIFS to two different fitness warm-ups called AROUND THE HORN DICE FITNESS and AROUND THE HORN MUSIC FITNESS! Each warm-up has 4 different versions. Each version includes 4 different exercises focusing on strength and endurance.
See the video below for an explanation of AROUND THE HORN DICE FITNESS!
In the nutshell, here’s how you play:
The music version of the game, AROUND THE HORN MUSIC FITNESS, uses the same 4 game boards but instead of dice, the teacher controls the movement by playing and stopping music.
Here’s how to play:
Each game comes with 4 separate game boards for a total of 16 different GIFS!
