girly-pushups1No More “Girly” Push-ups!
Running from February 4 – March 11, with weekly check-ins and prizes, this is your opportunity to step up your game and start cranking out some REAL push-ups! Alex Tries It Out, Dare 2 Dream Dare 2 Do, and Wine to Weightlifting want you to succeed in improving your overall strength with one clear message: No more “girly” push-ups!

Every week, they’ll be hosting link-ups on each of their blogs. Add your blog post where you talk about your progress, or even a URL to a Tweet or Facebook Status Update where you tell us how many push-ups you’ve made it up to. Once you’ve linked up, you’ll be entered to win a prize for that week! Plus, you’ve got a great group of other bloggers to reach out to for support on this fitness journey.
