Rolling into our final week of the Push-ups (+Poems) challenge, remember that what we’re looking for here is quality over quantity. We’ll be doing a lot of 1-level up push-ups this week: an inch lower, a straighter plank, clapping, etc. Whatever is one level up from your regular push.

3 burpees, 5 level-up push-ups, 10 squats
2 burpees, 5 level-up push-ups, 10 squats
1 burpee, 5 level-up push-ups, 10 squats
rest 1 minute

4 rounds

The minute rest between rounds lets you move through the round with speed and great enthusiasm.

Our poem for Tuesday is from none other than South Georgia born Alice Walker. Read this and get those level-up push-ups done, you revolutionary petunias!

The Nature of This Flower is to Bloom
Alice Walker

Rebellious. Living.
Against the Elemental Crush.A Song of Color
Blooming
For Deserving Eyes.
Blooming Gloriously
For its Self.

Revolutionary Petunia.
