See Results With This Push Up Workout

Good for you—you've been working out a lot. You did what everyone told you and you found something you love to do. So you do it over and over again—everyday.

The only thing experts seem to agree on is that the only perfect exercise is the one that you do every day—sticking with it is the only way to see results. It's a lot harder to stick to a plan if you hate it. Finding an exercise program you like is awesome, right?

While consistency is key to achieving results from your workouts, you and your muscles will get bored if you do the same workout all the time and worst of all—you'll stop seeing results.

The good news is that with so many exercises to choose from you can still do the exercises you love—but with a twist that will keep you challenged and seeing results.
