Push-ups, Revisited

When Morgan at Life After Bagels posted her “Pipes Challenge,” I got the boost I needed for my own floundering push-ups challenge. I have been slogging away at them for about eight weeks. (Here is my original post “Push-ups Challenge.”)

I was very excited to complete the six weeks, but I have been going at my own pace and repeating days, so I am not anywhere near 100 push-ups — far, far from it!

At the end of six weeks, I managed 33 push-ups, but my form was pretty horrible, so I decreased the number and have been trying to improve my form.

Bad form aside, though, I have seen some big changes in my strength. (I could only do seven “bad form” push-ups when I started.)

Here’s to another six weeks. I will see how far I get. Good luck to everyone else doing the Pipes Challenge!
