Fit Tip: Break It Down

On my third round of 20 push-ups, I was hesitant to put my hands down on the floor at Equinox. It had nothing to do with the state of the gym floor; I was suffering. This is when Hannah gave me a great simple tip that I am going to pass onto you. When faced with a daunting set, break it down. For instance, if those last 20 push-ups seem impossible, count them out in four sets of five. The smaller sets seem easier to conquer both mentally and physically. You can convince your mind and your muscles to hammer out five push-ups, and then another, and so on. It works when counting laps in the pool and minutes of a run. Test out this trick: drop and give me 20 push-ups.
