One Hundred Push ups program. The goal is to increase your strength and stamina so that, at the end of six weeks, you can do 100 push ups at once. I typically get stuck on week 4, which is really hard. I think I start to lose my concentration around 30 push ups. And I think the fact that I really don't care about doing 100 push ups all at once has something to do with it. I really enjoy the program, though, and this time I have a few friends doing it with me. Shannon, in particular, will push through to the end, and maybe that will motivate me as well. Today I did 71 push ups! (Week 2, day 2, track 3).
Since I talked Shannon into doing push ups, he challenged me to join him on the Two Hundred Squats program. We're alternating days - push ups on M-W-F and squats on T-TH-Sat. "No problem," I thought, "I'm stellar at squats." I jumped in yesterday for week 1, day 1, track 3, without doing the fitness test. I knew I could easily do over 21 squats. So yesterday I did 60 squats. Today, I'm really feeling it...and in some unexpected places.
I've almost always done my fitness things alone - it's fun to have some friends to challenge and motivate you to keep going, even if it's virtually. Thanks!
