A few weeks ago, I mentioned that I was starting the 100 push-up challenge. I didn’t expect this thing to be easy….but HOLY CRAP!
I got through week 3, and then took some time off to play in a golf tournament, and I was just plain lazy for a few days. Net/net…I took off a little more than a week.
I started up again yesterday where I left off…at the beginning of week 4. My sets yesterday were supposed to be: 21, 25, 21, 21 and at least 32…all on a minute rest. So I start hammering out the first set, get to about 15 and think to myself that my arms are going to rip out of my shoulders. I finished the set and nearly collapsed. Time to regroup. Rewind. I went back to week 3 to catch up on my fitness. So I finished out the set with 18, 14, 14 and 20. Essentially, I’m going to end up re-doing week 3 before moving on.
Today, I cannot move. My chest is sore. My shoulders are sore. I feel like a bench pressed a VW bug.
And that’s a good thing. J
