The 100 Push Ups Challenge ~ Week 3

Week 3 is coming up already. Who’s struggling to keep up? Don’t worry, it’s time to take another little max effort test, just like we did before the challenge started. You know the drill, do as many push ups as you possibly can before you collapse on the floor. Go!

No seriously, I meant go. Just do it. How many consecutive pushups can you do today? I’m happy to just wait until you finish (putting on waiting music in the background… dumdidum…).

How many? We need to know this to be able to keep going with the challenge. If you did less than 16, I recommend you go back and repeat last week (it’s ok, you will do better for it in the end, I promise)! But I bet ya, you are doing more today than you did 2 weeks ago! Am I right? And even if you feel like it’s a slow progress, remember that slow progress IS progress! If you did 16-20 push ups, you are now in column 1. If you did from 20 to 25 push ups, you’re in for column number 2 and if you did more than 25 consecutive push ups you do (you guessed it) number 3. Too easy. Let’s go;

I haven’t heard much from some of you after we started the challenge! I think I am due for an update, so please leave a comment below on your progress, for instance what you did in your initial test and what you did in your second test. If you don’t feel like sharing numbers, just let me know how you are going with all these push ups every week. I am finding them surprisingly pleasant to do on my knuckles (maybe pleasant isn’t the right word, but it’s not uncomfortable/painful like I thought it would be). And they don’t take long to do at all, so you can’t use that excuse not to do your 3 push up sessions a week. I try doing them first thing in the morning Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  So far, so good! 5 weeks to go to 100 (or at least a lot closer to 100 than I was before I started the challenge!).

Alright, now you should be all set for another week of push up training. Remember it is still not too late to join or to challenge someone to do it, simply go back and find the previous posts and start from Week 1.

Have a fabulous Friday 🙂

    Hi 🙂
    I took a little while to start this so I am just coming to the end of week 1, it is hard! I my initial test I discovered that I am rubbish at press ups and I couldn’t even do 1 full one on my toes, so I am doing modified ones. I am not doing them on my knees though because that changes the angle of your push I am using the bottom steps of the stairs (or the TRX if I am I. The gym) I will keep moving down a step and repeating the week until I can do proper ones! It might take me a while… But it wouldn’t be a challenge if it was easy 😀
