On Sunday night I did something that I never thought I would do. I finished the six-week one hundred push-up program. Even though didn’t do 100 consecutive push-ups, I am pretty pleased with what I did accomplish over the last
six seven and a half weeks. My last work out of the program consisted of 252 push-ups over nine sets, including one that was 60 consecutive push-ups! I’m damn proud of that 🙂
The website itself doesn’t expect that every person will be able to do 100 push-ups in one set, and I didn’t think that I would even come close to doing 100 in any number of sets. Looking at the program, I thought that week three was going to kill me, and that would be the end of the push-ups for me forever. I never actually expected to enjoy this process. I never thought that I would be selling it to people as I have been.
So now, I have to figure out a way to keep it up. I am pretty pleased with the muscles that I have gained, I officially have pipes! My arms don’t jiggle at all any more, and my abs are actually starting to have some definition again. My current plan is to keep up the three a week workouts, and aim to do five sets of twenty-five on those days. My only lament is that I didn’t work up the courage to try this sooner!
