Hi Farm00. Welcome. The more the merrier around here.

You go Shasha. But be forewarned. You'll feel it in your back and stomach then next day.

Push-ups for all!!!

well i only got up to 4. better than 2, back when i started this challenge. but i honestly haven't been as diligent as I should. I average about 2 p/u days a week lately, and I really haven't been pushing myself on the days I do get around to it. so I guess this was a bit of a wake up call for me! i'm going to continue on w knee push ups, and work through the 6 weeks, then maybe try to go back to square 1 with manly man p/u's!

thanks for the extra little challenge w/in a challenge, knobhdy!

Another day, another torturous round of push ups.

I am totally feeling it in my abs and lower back, but mostly my abs. I kept trying to keep them tight while I was doing the push-ups, cause if I didn't it felt like my stomach was going to rip out of my body. I barely make it though some of the sets, and with not so great form at that.

Still I am plugging away. I am going to make sure to spend one additional week for each column above the one I test in to for each week of the challenge. (I.e. I tested into column 2 of week one, so next week I will do column 3 of week one before moving on to week 2).

Sure, it will take me more than 6 weeks to get through the challenge (like ti hasn't already been longer than 6 weeks from when I started ) but I will be much stronger for it, and apparently have a stronger core, which is definitely a good thing.

Still Chugging. Week 1 of manly man push ups is done. I believe I will be redoing column 2 next week as well, and then move on to column 3.

I am taking my time and I am sure I will get a better workout out of it.

I am also totally making it up as I go along. But I am also seeing results so it is still rewarding, even though I am not moving through the weeks as quickly as they want me to.

Yesterday I was at strength training class and we did 45 seconds of push-ups. I did knee push ups because I really worked my arms and shoulders over the weekend. I did 45 seconds and I was only starting to get a bit tired at the very end. I probably could have gone for another 15 or even 30 seconds.

When I first started I could do maybe 5 seconds of push-ups. It made me feel so buff.

I am still going. Its not exactly speedy, but I have a new schedule and that is helping. Push-up Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday.

The other good news is that my shoulder is holding up this time, so I should just be able to push along.

WOW knobhdy!!! you're doing so well, staying on track and getting buff! I've completely fallen off this challenge! I got a new serving job that requires me to lift heavy trays, and I am sore for 2 days after I work... I'm getting some guns, just not pushing up. I'm planning to hop back on the challenge in a month or 2, once my arms get used to the trays keep posting tho, it's good motivation!

Wow! You can do 7 manly man push-ups now?! That's incredible.

I finally got to one full regular push-up. Hopefully it'll be perfect form by next week

Hi ladies. I am glad to hear I am not alone here. I am actually up to 20 Manly man push ups in a row. or I was. I wasn't good last week and I think I managed to do one day out of the three.

I was totally psyched to be back on schedule and committed this week when.......

I broke a toe on Sunday!

So no manly man push ups for a while, but I can do knee push ups as long as I can careful to keep my bad to toe off the floor. I did some for fun yesterday (yes, I did just say that I did push ups for fun...) and I was able to do 30 (knee push ups) before I even got tired.

I am actually having a lot of fun with this challenge, even if it is slow going.

I told my old training partner (different countries or we'd still be at it) about wanting to do 'proper pushups.. a lot of em' and he replied immediately.... What?? With YOUR boobies?? Ha! Told him just wait.. a few weeks You ladies are such an inspiration to me, Thank You!
