On friday I finished week 2 of the 100 pushup challenge. As they suggested on the 100 pushups website, I waited a couple of days, and then did the exhaustion test to find out what column I should be starting in tomorrow for week 3 of the challenege.
I got up this morning, got hydrated by drinking a couple of 12 ounce glasses of water, and then proceeded to pump out as many pushups as I could without stopping.
I quickly made it to 10 pushups, the point at which I stopped on my initial exhaustion test. So already I’m ahead of the game! I then made it to 16, my previous high number of pushups that I performed this past week. I finally topped out at 20 pushups – my new high.
Now if you had asked me if I could do another pushup after that 20th one, I may have been able to squeak out 1, or possibly 2 more. But after seeing week three’s workout, I knew there was no way I could finish it if I had to do column 2. Even column 1 looks hard to near impossible.
So next week, I start with sets of 15, 12, 12, 10, 15. Could it be my first fail? I hope not!
