3 Minute Push Up Challenge

This is just part 1 of a 4 part series providing you with a pretty powerful tool you are going to love…

3 Minute Push Up Challenge

Its that simple.  how many push ups can you do in 3 minutes.

You have to be true to yourself and you have to be true to your best form possible.  Be forewarned as your peers and Empowered Insiders will call you out for cheating and lying.

I challenge you to perform the 3 Minute Push Up Challenge.

Warm up, get ready, drink some water…

Set your 3 minute egg timer or iPhone timer or heck if you need one, try this online timer…

>> http://e.ggtimer.com/3minutes

But before you click on that link, you better assume the position.

Do as many reps as you can in 3 minutes.  Rest as much as you need to, perform perfect or near perfect push ups and do your best.

Let us know how you did by posting your results as a comment below on this post.

One more note, in your comments and video please say your name, weight and total number of reps.

I will tally all the results and on Friday.  Anyone who participates and posts a video tagged or linked back to this post for this or any of our four 3 minute challenges I will give a free night at any hotel they choose… I got thousands of hotels to choose from.

That’s right… anyone that can prove their worth and validate their 3 Minute Push Up Challenge abilities with a video, I will give you a 1 night hotel stay.  You will need a video camera and a YouTube account.  Be sure to tag it to Empowered Nutrition and add the link to your video in your comment with your “magic” number.

Anyone can enter, anyone can win… best of all its FREE!

I will also perform the 3 Minute Push Up Challenge tomorrow morning and let you know how I did.

This is a great way to test yourself every month to see how your performance is ever increasing.  It really validates if your weight loss is working by getting lighter and increasing your score or if your muscle building is working and your weight stays the same, even getting bigger and doing more reps each month.

Have an empowered day and let us see just how impressive your 3 minute push ups are.

    Hey!

    That was pretty hard.. I just did 97 push-ups. I have the video on my cellphone but I can’t find the USB cable to upload it.. great challenge anyway.

    Thanks!

      That’s awesome Edvin. If you ever get the USB cable going and you can send it to me or post it on YouTube and send me a link, I will honor my deal to you.

      Now its time to put in some hard work and train smart and hard for a month or so and test yourself again.

      Check out tomorrow’s challenge, I will email you.

      Thanks for letting me know. 97 in 3 minutes is pretty impressive. Great Job!

    Patrick,
    Long time no speak. My apologies. I’ve been super swamped with work. When I shoot a vid can I give the night to someone who needs it more than me? Thanks. Talk to you soon.

      Alexandre, awesome work. Love the video, cool simple backdrop, you are clearly lean. One more thing I should have reminded everyone was to say your name, weight and the number of push ups.

      For that great feat of 91 push ups in 3 minutes you will get 1 night Hotel Stay on me.
      Thanks Alexandre stay empowered and test yourself again next month.

  10. Aw, that was a really good quality post. In theory I’d like to write like that too – taking time and also real effort to make a fine article… but what can I say… I procrastinate alot and under no circumstances seem to get something done.
