one hundred push ups

by Stacy

I’ve got noodle arms. I always have. Even when I was a swimmer in high school, I had to work so hard at gaining any upper arm strength, and I was only semi-successful.

Enter the hundred push ups training program. I actually started it a few months ago, but stopped, probably due to performances or a root canal. Either way, I did manage to stick with it for several weeks. Hundred push ups is a simple program with the goal of being able to do one hundred push ups after about six weeks. It has three columns to start from different ability levels and work from there.

And by posting it, it will help me stay on track this time. I’m starting back in column one because I am a wuss. My actual start date was Saturday, the 12th, so today is my day 2 of the first week.

Who wants to play along?

EDIT: A big mean bully is making me start in column 2 because I did 12 push ups today. Hmph.

Are you doing real push ups or girl push ups this time?

Girl push ups! I have a longer hypotenuse! Remember my shins that are twice as long as yours? Right.

YOU ROCK! I think knees down push ups are still a great accomplishment (and sometimes I feel I get better form (though less resistance) with those than I do with the regular ones) and I do both as part of my daily routine. I do NOT do 100 push ups at a time though, I’m gonna check out the program though and maybe try it :)…

I also think it’s hard if you have any back problems to do the regular style push ups… I find that all it takes for my regular push ups to hurt is a bad night’s sleep or long day sitting/ or standing. I ‘modify’ my push ups based on how my back is feeling and I think it’s the healthy thing to do, for me.

So does this mean you’re doing push ups with us? =D

And my eventual goal is to get through the program doing knee push ups, then do it again with full push ups after that.
