Can You Do 100 Push Ups?

I sure can’t! But I am going to be able to after I complete the 100 Hundred Push Ups Challenge. After beginning the initial test doing the “real” push ups and collapsing after just three, I decided that I would have to go for the alternative, aka “girly” push ups, for the time being. I was able to do 16 “good form” girly push ups, which put me in the second column (see the chart for week 1). I completed the first week on Saturday, and while the first two days were relatively simple, the third day was TOUGH! I can’t wait to be stronger so I can really tackle them, especially after my husband did 100 pushups yesterday with just a little difficulty!

Week 1
Day 1 (Monday, Aug. 11): 10, 10, 8, 6, 9
Day 2 (Wednesday, Aug. 13): 12, 12, 10, 10, 13
Day 3 (Saturday, Aug. 16): 15, 13, 10, 10, 17

Week 2
Day 4 (Monday, Aug. 19):
Day 5 (Wednesday, Aug. 21):
Day 6 (Friday, Aug. 23):

I’ve looked over the whole program, and I’m thinking it’s pretty likely that I’ll have to repeat some weeks, which is fine. I’m not in a rush; I just want to be able to do 100 eventually. Then it’s my hope to restart the challenge doing the “real” push ups. Then I can take on my husband! Yeah! 🙂

Now, the real question is: who wants to join me?? (Visit Kat’s blog to see some others who have undertaken the challenge. And really, you should just read her blog anyway. It’s great!)

  1. Way to go on the push ups! By the way, I noticed that your promo graphic for JJ Heller is too large. If you would like the code with a smaller graphic, email me and I’ll make it the perfect size for your blog! I’m all kinds of “nerd” when it comes to graphics.
