Hundred Pushups, Week 1, Day 1

Tonight was a bit of a strange time to start the Hundred Pushups program, but I did.

Since I only did eight pushups on the initial test I started in Column 2. Day 1 of Week 1 calls for five levels (sets) of pushups: 7, 7, 5, 4, and max (as many as I can do), with a rest period of 60 seconds (or more) in between. I did the first four levels as prescribed, and did 12 pushups on the fifth, for a total of 35 pushups. The next day I’ll do on Monday so I’ll have a day’s rest in between.

We’ll see how sore I am tomorrow. I’ll drink plenty of water before I hit the sack tonight.

Ninety-two more pushups

After reading about a few of my blogging colleagues getting into the Hundred Pushup Challenge I decided to get into it, too.

My performance on the initial test was pretty poor: eight. Only ninety-two more to go.

NCN at No. Calories Needed managed 13 on his first go-around. JD of Get Fit Slowly is working up and Jim at Journal of Healthy Living powered through 27 the first time around. Nickel and Flexo are in, too.

The program at HundredPushups.com looks pretty easy to follow! Definitely not easy to do, but easy to follow!
