one hundred push ups
Does anyone want to this with me?
I don't actually expect to be doing 100 pushups anytime soon, but it's a great workout.

I'll do it with you. I used to be able to do 50 in a row on my knees. not my toes. I wonder if I can get anywhere near that again?

I was away at the weekend so no workouts. I'm going to go today at some point.

EDIT:

Today I used the crosstrainer for 30 minutes and the bike for 30 minutes

Doing the initial test is too much pressure for me. I'm skipping it. I have a fair idea of what my ability is, so I'm going to go start with the second column on week 1. I'm going for the standard pushups.

It might be "easy" at first, but I know that it increases in intensity rather quickly!
I'll start tomorrow. I'm snowboarding tonight so I'll be back late. I'll have a read up on it. I hope I can still do them

The first day was a piece of cake, even though it was really late at night. Let me know how it goes for you!

On a related note, I really need to get my sleep schedule back on track. It's hurting me more ways than I can count. As far is this workout goes, I don't think I would physically be able to do some of the more intense weeks if I were not well-rested.
My arms are a bit sore from yesterday on the snow slope (I kept falling down) but I did the initial test of the push up challenge. I did about 12 on my knees, probably 10 with good form. I had no idea I was so weak. I'm going to start week one in a bit when my arms have recovered.

I'm logging it on the DailyBurn website.

Edit: I did the first day of the first week. Once I started I felt I could keep going but I'm going to stick to the challenge as it is.

Push ups are one of my favorite workouts! Day 2 completed. My lower abs were sore today, but I didn't really feel it until the last 2 pushups on the last set.
My daily exercise routine is.
before i start home workout warm up body and get ready for exercise.
Push ups are one of the first exercises everyone can easily perform.
this workout is for the chest, triceps and even involve your back and shoulder muscles.

Spontaneous party happened at my house last night. I thought my roommate and I were just going to bake and do laundry, but no.

Also, I visited someone in the hospital... If that's not motivation to workout, I don't know what is.

I'm doing the Day 3 right now. I might repeat this week. Hmm.
Yesterday:
Didn't get up till after 10am which is very unusual for me so had a proper rest day

Today:
I was planning on going today but I woke up at 2.30am and couldn't get back to sleep. I've also barely eaten anything so another rest day. It's now 5.30pm.

Tomorrow:
Hopefully a better nights sleep followed by a good session at the gym. I am not liking this messed up schedule at the moment.

40 minutes cardio, bike and crosstrainer. Full weights. It took me nearly the entire 95 minutes of my gym playlist to do today. I was trying to do core stability at the same time as the cardio.

I might do it again tomorrow, but just cardio.
