One of my fitness goals this year is to achieve 100 push ups.
I do quite a few push up routines at my twice-weekly personal training sessions, but apart from the general improvement to strength and endurance you’d expect to get from those exercises, I haven’t been doing anything specific to build up my numbers.
Last week I came across the excellent Hundred Push Ups Training Program and thought, ‘Why not?’
And of course, as soon as Wakes got a sniff of the words ‘fitness’ and ‘challenge’, she was in too.
Both of us did 50 in our initial test on Wednesday. I’ll keep you posted on our progress.
The site tailors for all levels of fitness – so even if you can do less than 10 pushups at the moment, there is a program to help you build this up over a period of weeks.
Let me know if you decide to take up the challenge.
