A few weeks ago in boot camp one of the personal trainers introduced me to a new game. And by game, he really meant 4 minutes of torture for my arms. Thanks C!
Have you ever heard that song by Moby called Flower? No? Well you probably don't recognize the title (like me) because part of the lyrics are more popular than the real title. According to Ask.com, Bring Sally Up is part of the lyrics to the song Flower by Moby. Who knew? This is evidently a big deal in the fitness/cross fit world when it comes to push up challenges. Just try looking it up on Google and you'll see what I mean.
Here's how it works. The song is ~ 4 minutes long and you hit play and get ready to do push ups.
When the lyrics say BRING SALLY UP, you push up and hold it.
When the lyrics says BRING SALLY DOWN, you go down and hold it until it says BRING SALLY UP.
Repeat until the song is over or until your arms just die.
I made it about 17 seconds before my arms gave out. Not even kidding. This is hard. See below for a video I grabbed off YouTube.
You can modify this game using the same up and down cues if you aren't into push ups and use different exercises.
Here are some other exercises you could do:
2. Wall Sits
4. Chair Dips <---That one is going to suck!
5. Bench Press (You Might want to have someone spot you)
