Week three of the 100 pushup challenge… again
This morning was day 3 of week 3 of the 100 pushups challenge. I did the same week last week, and I failed on my day 3 pushups in the last set of 16. I made it to 12, and then had to finish from my knees.
This week was a little bit different. I could definitely feel myself getting stronger, and even though my gains were small, I was able to do more pushups in the final set each day, than last week.
I started out today with the set of 20 . I was pushing myself and powering through the pushups today, something I haven’t done as much before. The pace was just a little bit faster. I then made it through two sets of 15, and the 12. At this point in the sets last week I was really struggling. This week I was feeling a bit stronger.
After resting between my sets (another thing I didn’t do as well last week), I powered through my last set. I made it to the required 16, and kept going. I made it to 20, and kept going. I finally maxed out at 25 pushups! That’s quite an improvement over last week’s 12, and a new pushup high for me!
Next week I’ll finally be moving on to week 4, and once again, column one. Once again, here is the chart of my progress:
