100 Push-up Challenge

I'm into week 5 of the 100 push-up challenge.  I signed up at their website and have been following the guidelines.  Initially you take a test to see how many consecutive push-ups you can do.  I did 11 on the first test.  These were straight leg push-ups; not girly ones.  Each week they give you a chart to follow.  You do them for three days each week and rest between.  

I took another test between weeks 4 and 5, and I can now do 66 in a row!  That's a pretty big jump and not too bad for a 52-year-old.  I hope I'll be about to do 100 straight at the end of the 6 weeks.  They say I can.  I think I can.  I guess we'll see in about a week.

You are setting a setting a great example. I'm not saying I can do that, but I am now thinking about how to fit a little more movement into my routine. Thanks Debbie!

Man, I'm impressed! I don't think I can even do ONE! Upper body strength has never been my thing, but I sure could do some sit ups back in the day!
