The 100 Push-Up Challenge

Handsome Hunk and I are embarking on a 100 Push-Up Challenge thanks to The Secret Life of Kat. I saw this on her blog and thought it would be a fun thing for the Hunk and I to do together. So, you my faithful Internet readers, get to hear all about it (aren't you thrilled!?!).

If you would like to see the other (crazy) people who are doing this challenge you can go here.

Initial Test

Last night we did the initial test. I (being the wimp that I am) cannot do a "real" push-up, so I adopted the hand's and knees (i.e. "girly") push-up position. Handsome Hunk could do the "real" ones (after-all he is a hunk!).

Our Stats:

Me: 7
HH: 8

Tonight we begin the actual training. I'll give you an update next Monday to let you all know how it's going.

If anyone would like to join us I'd be happy to link to your blog (or give you an honorable mention if you don't have a blog). Happy push-ups!

I'm on board. 9 rather girlie push-ups. Ok, ok, I didn't go nose all the way the floor, but it still counts, right?

Kristina said...

Ok, well, according to dh, I can't even do one. I can't go all the way to the floor because if I go past a certain point, I just fall down. So...I'm not sure where to start.

I don't do nose to the floor either. I just get as close as I can.

Some other people are doing the first six weeks with the girl push-ups then they are going to do it again with real ones. The first time through is just to build up their strength.

Thanks, Jess. I guess I'm just going to do what I can, and hopefully I'll get closer and closer to the floor. (Dh even got his sorry self off the couch to show me how it is "supposed" to be done.)
