At the beginning of the year the Brewmaster and I started a program where we would do push-ups equal to
the number of day of the year. So, on January 1 we did 1 push-up, February 1 we did 32 (it’s the 32nd day of the year). I kept it up for 94 days. On the 95th day, I missed. I don’t remember why but it was my birthday. I kept at it intermittently for the next couple of weeks but eventually abandoned it on day 115. I’ve continued to do push-ups but now don’t do more than 40 or so at a time.
Perhaps the push-up challenge was just too much. I’ve only done 7100 of the 24,000 or so that I’ve supposed to have done by now.
But I’m looking to get back into it. So, here is a new challenge. This site gives a specific training program that can get you up to 100 pushups in just 6 weeks. The most I was able to do without stopping was 58 so this should be a nice challenge.
Improving your core strength is important for jogglers as it will help build endurance and make long distance running less stressful. It will also come in handy when you try some of the Joggling Banzuke stunts I have planned.
If you want a new push-up challenge, start with this test first.
My initial ranking is a 5.
