Lots of things look easy at first glance. But try to do them right, and you quickly realise they take way more work than anticipated.
Consider the pushup. It looks simple enough. Plus, it’s a great form of exercise that you can do anywhere, anytime.
If that’s the case, then what’s so special about 22 Pushups? It’s a program that helps you focus on the exercise, and follow through.
Don’t think you can get away with cheating, either. The app uses your iPhone’s proximity sensor to check whether every rep is chest-to-ground: Place your phone below your chest, descend all the way, and ascend – only then does it count.
While you’re sweating it out, your virtual trainer will shout out encouragement, count off your correct pushups, and call you out if you start slacking.
Doing 22 pushups with good form isn’t the piece of cake you thought it would be, is it? You’re probably sweating buckets by now.
Even cooler, the app records the whole process using your iPhone’s front camera. This way you get a form check and a close-up of you grinding them out. What could be more inspiring than your own, sweaty ”no pain, no gain” face?
