    Push ups!

    I downloaded the runtastic app for push ups as a New Years resolution. The app automatically counts the push ups and has a training plan to get you to 20, 50 or 100 in a set.

    I figured I would just play with it. Well, my youngest two (8 and 6) wanted to play too. So they are working out machines. This little squirt did 100 push ups and can easily do more than I can



    His form is suffering here but he was around 70 when the picture was taken.

    If you are looking for fitness activities for kids, take a look at this app. They have proceeded to play with the sit-up app and the squat app too. They love them. Crazy, I know.

    I stopped doing push ups a while ago. I found out that I wasn't pushing myself up but pushing the Earth down.
