Acquaintance, n.: A person whom we know well enough to borrow from, but not well enough to lend to-

Quite often (more times than not) one of our adoring and sometimes misguided fans will write in asking:  “What is a Perfect Push Up?”  Good question and thanks for asking.  Going back and digging through the official Data Archives here at CultFit HQ we found an image that shows the quintessential Perfect Push Up!

Behold, The Perfect Push Up

For those of you at home who know how to read:

Thank you:

And to think fitness and strength training is a new fad?  Thanks be to the heavens that X-Fit didn’t invent this stuff.

The Plan-

We know for a fact that 98.3% of our dear readers have the calendar marked with a Sharpie for all the events they are competing (used loosely) in this year.  We do as well, sort of.  Make sure to remind us and we’ll get the list posted here this week…

The Workout-

Bike/Swim/Walk Your choice for at 30 minutes at a pace which takes you out of your comfort zone followed by:

At least 250-300 reps of the following:

KB Swings (any style you like)

Perfect Push Ups


If you really put some effort and most importantly heart into the movements today…You will really surprise yourself how much work you can get done in such a small amount of time, ENJOY!!!

    This is my first time visiting your blog, and I absolutely love the voice and tone that is used. (Can you tell I’m an English teacher??) I don’t know that I am ready to compete, but I know that I am ready for some great challenges!

    Thank you for stopping by. Sometimes we get so bogged down with training to compete that we forget all the great challenges along the way. Stay healthy and we look forward to hearing from you again soon Ms. English Teacher!

    I love love love that RDj quote. I feel that this is what I am doing in most of my interactions with people, haha.

    I can’t wait for my arms, biceps and triceps to be strong, stout and handsome (intended light sarcasm). A one-minute-long pushup? My first thought was, “Are you KIDDING?” And of course, the thought is followed by dying of curiosity to give it a go… Got kinda thrown by the curved dip photo. So we’re talking straight pushups where the chin almost touches the ground? Be patient, please. I’m new to your planet. 🙂
