2019 Pushup and Sit-Up Challenge! Set your own Goals!

MachafinMachafin Posts: 1,907Member Member Posts: 1,907Member Member
Inspired by the 100,000 pushups in 2018 thread, I set some goals for monthly challenges for pushups and situps, all I met until I broke my finger. I am back at it now!
My long-term goal is to complete 100K-125K pushups and 75K Sit-Ups in 2019.

I am thankful for the turnout in the previous thread and encourage all to join this challenge and set your own goals! Whether small or large, the ultimate goal is improvement of your health and becoming stronger. So let's see your goals and improvements for this upcoming year!

    I have to set my goal for crunches and not push-ups yet. I am going to post instead my physical therapy routine when accomplished and once that has become routine, I will try the push-ups again. I will continue my Chiropractor visits. I am attempting to get this old neck pinched nerve injury under control. It took a lot of years just to figure out it was that and not a shoulder injury.

    Goals: 400 crunches/ab work a week and PT routine

    Here's to a great 2019 for everyone!!

    Hi. I am endeavouring again to do 25 push-ups per day for the month of January. If I ever find that I can get closer to the ground and do them not from my knees I might consider trying more than 25. I really enjoyed doing it last month, it is one thing that I would not normally do with my workout style (zumba-ish, ice skating).

    Thanks for renewing the challenge for another month Machafin : - )

    Yes, you definitely don't want to undo any healing.

    No worries! Everyone starts somewhere. Just make reasonable goals (like you are doing) and stick to it! You will se progress!

    Good going Colleen. I still haven't had 1 good push-up, but am soldiering on doing 25 a day from my knees and not getting to the ground. I did this last month, and am definitely feeling stronger. Maybe by the end of this month I will be closer to the ground. One day from my feet instead of knees maybe : - )
    I rarely work my upper body, I feel pretty happy to be doing this - without this thread I may never have started.
    So thanks again to you Machafin.
