Push Yourself

Hello......... Is anyone still around!

Hi, I'm back again. I am determined to get a grip of my core and strength. So new year new start. I've set all my apps back to the beginning. My aim is to do stretches, squats, push-ups ( stair ones) and sit-ups twice a week with an extra one if I'm really good. I'm trying to make achieveable goals this year that keep me fit and healthy. My main aim is by the time I get to the end of the year I will be doing 2 really good stretch sessions a week and 2x 100 push-ups, 2x 100 squats and 2x 100 sit-ups a week.

Hi, I'm here and I have much the same focus as you.

I'm starting with a warm up week this week, then I will start the pushup, situp and squat challenges next week.

Sounds like a plan to me. I'm sure there I'll be some more ready to join us again in the coming days. Good luck.

I'm still here - week 5 day 2 next, possibly tomorrow or Wednesday. Still doing squats and static lunges in between each set. That may stop with this next lot as there are more sets each day.

I went to Lidl today and bought a resistance band set, balance board and a new exercise mat, so I'll be doing some stretching, strength and core along with the running and walking, a bit of something everyday - well that's the plan!

Yes, still here - sagged slightly over Christmas, of course :D but determined to get back to it now and do my routine twice a week. The aim is to increase the weights, but not by much. I want to be toned, not muscly!

I'm still here as well, just kind of been busy, kept up with the running and flexibility training and the odd football training over christmas but I am starting back from week 1 today, this time round instead of just sitting there waiting for the 60seconds to go I will be doing what your doing and including other exercises in between the push ups sets :)

Take care,

Sadly, I'm not still here. Was doing brilliantly and had just about finished w4, then pulled a muscle in my side, I assume doing the push ups but possibly carrying heavy Christmas shopping, and it's still causing me grief. Can't do push ups, but worse still, can't run properly either. Only managed 2 short slow runs since then, and even those needed ibuprofen afterwards :( Guess I'm living up to my profile picture of a broken down 1970s car -more time off the road than on!

Cooooeeeee. Yeah still here but I was doing Jillian Michaels workouts for my Push Yourself Challenge

Got to Day 23 of 30 day Six Week Abs. Amazing as I thought I wouldn't be able to do day 1

Keep up the good work RFC!
