In ancient times, rubies were laid under the foundation of buildings to bring them good fortune.
I’m not sure about the buildings, but I bet a few archeologists have seen good fortune as a result of this practice.
19th century American businessman P.T. Barnum once said “the foundation of success in life is good health: that is the substratum fortune.”
I believe the jewels of health and fitness are essential foundations for a life of happiness and fortune.
This workout is to be used to build a strength foundation for the entire upper body.
The workout consists of three push up variations that will leave your chest and triceps redder than the reddest ruby.
So go ahead and grab your copy of the workout sheet and get to it!
Do each exercise for the specified amount of reps, rest for 30 seconds, then move to the next exercise. Once you finish one round, rest for 1 minute. Do 4 rounds total.

- Wide push ups [10 Hardest Pushups In The World]
- Triangle Push Ups [Death by Pushups]
Try to go to failure with each exercise.
For triangle push ups, your hands don’t have to be touching, just have them as close to each other as possible. For wide push ups, have your hands as wideer than shoulder width as possible, even if only slightly so.
