Choose Your 10-Day Push-Up Challenge
How much will you push each day? Remember, these are just suggestions, it's up to you to decide what challenge you are up for!
Level 1 - Goal: 40 push-ups
Okay, we know you’re strong and you want to get stronger. Do 40 push-ups over 10 days, form a team to help you, or modify your push-up to a half push-up from the knees.
Level 2 - Goal: 400 push-ups
Do 40 push-ups a day for 10 days. Log your push-ups each day. If you are in a team, then everyone in the team can do 40 push-ups each or you can elect to spread 40 push-ups over the group.

Level 3 - Goal: 401+ push-ups
Looking for a bigger challenge? Do 2 or 3 sets of 40 push-ups for 10 days. Make it a one-armed push-up or harder. Set your goal and share with your friends and teammates.
Show us your push-ups
There are many ways to do a push-up. We encourage you to share your push-up style across your social media channels using the hashtag #Push4Men so they feature on our website and we can share your posts.
Once you have signed up, it is time to seek donations and to promote your page to your friends, colleagues and family. This is easy to do from your profile page. A good way to kick off your #Push4Men campaign is to make a personal donation.
All money raised will support work to improve men’s health through the Australian Men’s Health Forum (AMHF).
AMHF is the peak body for men’s health in Australia. It brings together people who are working to improve the lives and health of men and boys.
Staying strong to prevent heart disease
Push4Men runs throughout Men’s Health Week, which starts on 14 June 2021, and is a great way to raise awareness about heart disease, the biggest killer of men in Australia, and the simple steps men can take to reduce the risk of heart disease.
One way men can prevent heart disease is by staying strong. Research shows that men who can do 40 push-ups are up to 10 times less likely to get heart disease than men who can’t.
If you are not ready to take the Push4Men challenge, we understand, maybe next year. In the meantime, we appreciate any donation you can make. Simply click the donate button, or donate to a team or individual.
