OPTION #6: Push-Ups

Label the y-axis be 3 of pushups

Label the x-axis in days

This activity is designed to determine if performing 3 sets of push ups a day increases the maximum number of push ups you can complete in one minute

Record the maximum number of pushups you are able to complete in 1 minute

Lie face down on the mat and place your hands palm down on the mat next to your shoulders. Push yourself up so that your arms are fully extended. Return to the down position, allowing your chest to touch the mat. Be sure to keep the back, hips, and legs in the same plane throughout the exercise

Repeat this procedure each day for 28 days

Days 1-7--Establish your baseline #pushup in 1 minute

Days 8-21—Intervention is prior to measurement, practice with 3 sets of 10 push ups

Your intervention is practicing with 30 pushups total, you will have terrific arms by the end of this study!

After practicing, record the maximum number of pushups completed in 1 minute

Days 22-28---NO more practicing prior to measurement, but continue to measure the number of


pushups in 1 minute
