100 Push-Up Challenge
Meh! I need a new challenge. Couple of weeks back, I saw that someone hereabouts had posted about a 100 push-ups challenge. Being as I’m on the thin and weedy side of things above the waist, rather like the ‘before’ picture in the Charles Atlas adverts, I’ve never been able to do push ups (or as we call them here, press-ups).
So as I can’t yet do it, being able to do a hundred would be kinda cool. In the sense of the Rocky Horror Show’s line about why Rocky had that name in the first place - it’s because of all the rocks in his head.
So I’ve just done my initial test (excuse any typing errors - my arms are shaking), which identifies what level of programme I’m on. If I’d realised that the better I did in my initial test, the harder the programme would be, maybe I wouldn’t have tried quite so hard though . . .
I have to do sets of push-ups three times a week for six weeks. I wonder if that’ll be enough to get me from my initial low starting point and all the way to a hundred, or will I need to do two, or three, or four sets of six weeks?
