So I was chuggin' along doing my push-up routine when week 4 hit. (Week 4 is grueling!) Between joint pain from doing 120 or so push-ups over 5 sets and a funky virus setting in, I was having a hard time. Maybe the joint pain was from the virus??
Anyway, after a little beef about doing them "girly style" I have decided to do the challenge from the beginning with MANLY push-ups! I did the repeat "Initial test" and ended up doing half as many as I did when I did the test girly style. Honestly, I was surprised-I thought I would have done less!! What a difference it makes when you take your knees off the floor. I liked how I could REALLY feel it in my stomach. I could feel it in my stomach before, but not quite this much.
So I am adjusting my older adventure and creating a new one in the process. We'll see what happens after a 3 week break and during week 4 of the program this time around.
The One Hundred Push Up site has a really great break down on training and the iPhone app for it is AMAZING! If you have an iPhone/iPod and you want to take this challenge, invest the $1.99 to get the app. It's worth it!
