Hundred Pushups, Week 3 wrap-up

Got through another week!  I thought week 3 would get me but I squeaked by.  Here’s my progress so far:

Date Level 1 Level 2 Level 3 Level 4 Maximum Total
06/18/08 Initial test 8
06/21/08 7 7 5 4 12 35
06/23/08 9 8 6 5 10 38
06/25/08 10 8 8 5 11 42
06/28/08 9 8 6 4 14 41
06/30/08 11 9 7 7 12 46
07/02/08 10 10 8 8 15 51
07/04/08 Exhaustion test 19
07/05/08 15 12 12 10 15 64
07/07/08 16 14 14 12 16 72
07/09/08 20 15 15 12 17 79

One thing I did find myself doing is “powering through” the pushups more (meaning I did them faster). That and I continued to take a little extra time in between the levels (somewhere between 3 and 5 minutes rather than 1 to 2 minutes). I can see the number of pushups I’m doing going up steadily, so that’s what really matters, I guess.

Sticking with the program is going to be most of what gets me to the hundred. Since I was so fat to begin with I set my expectations of getting to 100 in six weeks as being zero.  I’ll be happy if I can get there in anywhere close to six months.

But that’s all right.  It’s helping me to get into better shape.

  1. I was able to get through day 2 of week 3 today, but now I’m on to day 3 for the second time. Hopefully I’ll be able to finish it this time. Maybe I’ll try your “powering through” and extra rest time method 🙂
