Push-Up Challenge, Day 4

I started with a set of 12 manly push-ups and it was quite a struggle to push through them.  I thought I was going to die. Now, one possible explanation could be that I did today’s challenge at night after dinner when I typically do my push-ups in the morning.  There is another possible reason, but I will explain that all tomorrow.  I have a killer headache and I need to lie down. 


So, to recap today’s challenge: first set of 12 were manly with much struggle and sets of 17, 13 and 13 were all girlie push-ups.  I really hope to start week 4 on Friday and I may be able to if I only do all girlies push-ups.

    Way to go! I did the 100 push up challenge last summer and FAILED. I repeated week 4 about 3 times — same for week 5. I was determined to do full push ups the whole time and that killed me. After my failure, I started doing weeks 3 and 4 w/girl push ups as part of my workout routine and that worked for me.

    GOOD LUCK with the challenge!

    Is anyone else fixating on the fact that their carpet really needs to be vacuumed while doing push-ups? I think this is derailing my progress…
