    Didn't get to do the test yet, abs are killing from my ab workut 2 days ago. Will do it tomorrow.

    I too have problems with breathing when doing pushups, end up getting a killer head rush. Too busy counting them out to remember to breath properly. Something to work on

    Doing day 2 tonight after work. I may go from level 3 down to level 2, because my arms are still super sore. This won't help me much if I can't move my arms enough to do a push up, now will it?

    Think it'll hurt?
  • michaelhemichaelhe Posts: 81Member Member Posts: 81Member Member
    I'm thinking about dropping to level 2 as well depending on how I do with day 2 of level 3 tonight. If it takes me a little longer to get to 100 then so-be-it.

    Tonight will be Week 1 Day 2 for me! Can't wait. Still doing modified pushups. I think I'm just going to see how I do. If I start building up strength, then I may try to start doing full Pushups. Anyways...I'll check back tonight! Good luck friends!!!:flowerforyou:

    Man some people on here are kicking some rear! I am dong modified pushups this week with the middle column. I will start Monday with the first column doing full pushups I hope! I also do other arms exercises in my work outs so this might be effecting my count. I am doing pushups first though, then my other work out. My next day is Saturday with modified, then no more. I might take longer than 6 weeks to get to 100 push ups but that's okay. I will just be gald to be getting more buff! :happy:

    Hey I love your Disney pics, mechanicmom. We'll be going to Disney World mid-September for two weeks! That's one reason I'm trying to get in shape NOW! The first time we went we were in so much pain because we weren't ready for so much walking around!! :smile:

    OK, so yesterday I started my pushup workout. I thought, no problem, I can do this, and at the time it was difficult, but over so fast. HOWEVER, today I can barely lift my arms to save myself, and I only did 37 pushups total--NOT consequtive. This may be harder than I thought!:grumble: I'm glad I had today off, the thought of trying to do a pushup makes my stomach turn:happy: Anybody else "feeling the pain?":laugh:
  • michaelhemichaelhe Posts: 81Member Member Posts: 81Member Member
    Ella, I feel the same way. I am on Day 2 and was supposed to do 12, 12, 10, 10, 10+ but on the 5th round I could only get 5 (so 49 ... I am typing this with noodle-arms :laugh: ). I can tell I am making progress but it is looking like I'm going to have to do-over week 1 before I can move on.

    okay i am soooo in!!! I use to be really weak in the arms, I have grown in my strengh, I love doing push ups but I usually do them with planks ~ i am going to check out the site, and add these in. I will post later on how many i can do consecutively, not sure, did 3 sets of 10 at the gym earlier and they were closed position. (for some reason they are easier for me)

    QUESTION: I know some of you are doing modified pushups...are any of you doing REAL pushups? Like I had mentioned earlier, I think I want to do modified for the first week or two and then switch to real...do you think this is a good idea??

    I'm doing real pushups at the moment - after I complete the program I'm going to do it over with diamond pushups.

    Full pushups offer more of a benefit because a) there's more weight on your arms, and b) it slightly modifies the angle that you use for the exercise. Because you change the angle, you'll be using slightly different muscles compared to a modified pushup.

    Both will help so long as you remember full range of motion, and don't drop yourself/use momentum. Go slow. Thats why I use a metronome set to 50 bpm. If you stick to it you get one heck of a workout. Full pushups will just help a little bit more.


    I guess I can't do this since my metronome is in the shop. Scheech!

    Last night didn't go well. My arms were so sore I could barely push myself up. I took a raincheck and will be doing day 2 today. I'm pretty sure I'm going to lower myself to the "intermediate" track instead of the high track.
