Why not try completing 100 press ups a day for the next 30 days. You burn on average 1 calorie per push up, depending on your weight and how vigorously you’re exercising, meaning when you perform 100 push ups, you can expect to burn about 100 calories. 100 calories * 30 days = 3,000 calories (nearly a pound of fat).
Or even take it one further and do it everyday for a year. 100 calories * 365 day = 36,500 calories (more than 10 pounds of fat).
Do you want to lose 10 pounds of fat by this time next year?
A mantra is a Buddhism idea – the theory being that repeating a word or sound will help aid concentration in meditation. So why not relate this to exercise and try using a mantra when you are training – think of a word, sound or noise that you feel is powerful, strong and even potentially meaningful to you and try using this as your mantra – when you are starting to struggle during an exercise keep repeating this sound in your head over and over again until the exercise is over. But remember mantras are unique to you so the idea is you keep it to yourself and not tell anyone else your mantra.
