Push It: Week 1, Day 2

Today’s workout looked like this:

DAY 2

REST 90 SECONDS BETWEEN EACH SET (LONGER IF REQUIRED)

SET 1 3 6 10
SET 2 4 8 12
SET 3 2 6 8
SET 4 3 6 8
SET 5 max (at least 4) max (at least 7) max (at least 12)

This. Was. Rough.

I could barely eek out 12 on the last set.

Deveree – my hands are slightly wider than my shoulders. When I have them closer, they feel more like tricep pushups for me. Plus, Jillian on the 30 Day Shred showed the difference between a plank position and a push-up position (on the 2nd workout, I think?) and the push-up position was slightly wider. How’s it going for you?

Brooke – keep it up!!!! Are you following the plan?

Any other joiners?

(You don’t have to do the 100 push-up challenge, you know; whatever will challenge you: 10, 20, 50, 200! Just let me know!)

    I'm joining the push up challenge 🙂 I showed Travis and he wants to do it too. I guess he used to do 100 every day on his mission and wants to get it back so count both of us in on this one 🙂

    100 push ups? Seriously? Dang…good for you! More power to you girl! I'll have to see how many I can do to begin with, and then if I don't embarrass myself too badly, I just may join! 🙂

    Thanks for the motivation. I got my boss doing clap push ups in the back today and my co-workers are counting each night how many they can do, haha. I did some last night but I came up with a plan. I know we are supposed to do a 100 real push ups but I figure if I get to a 100 knee push ups in a row I can then start over with real ones before 2011. I'll let you know how day one with just knee ones goes tomorrow. I am actually really excited!

    I'm planning on it…just keep pushing it off. Sounds cool though.

    Awesome Jeana! Glad you're in! Just do your initial test tonight! One day at a time! 🙂

    Michelle – you won't embarrass yourself!! It's just however many YOU want to make it to – it doesn't have to be 100. Heck, I'm not sure I'll make it to 100! 🙂 I'm adding you to the team!

    Here is how my Day 2 went, I rested 30-60 seconds between each set:

    Set 1- 10
    Set 2- 12
    Set 3- 8
    Set 4- 8
    Set 5- 8 real push-ups, then my arms collapsed and I fell on my face (not joking), got up and did 4 "girl" push ups.
    Set 6- 8
    Set 7- 6

    Ah! I had trouble with the fifth set again! But I was determined to max out at 12, hence the 6th and 7th sets. Maybe the third day I'll be able to do it exactly as the schedule shows it. I hope!

    Day 1 completed yesterday. It felt great. Teri you need to link some form tips, I think I have wrong form. Do my elbows go straight out or back towards my back or what when I bend?

    Deveree – I can't believe you did 7 sets!!!! You are crazy!

    Brooke – my arms go out to the side instead of straight back. Those a little bit different types of push-ups – out to the side is more of a chest pushup and to the back is more a tricep pushup. I'll do a form post soon!
