Push Yourself

Can't do a push up :(

Hi All,

I've just joined this group as summer is looming yet again and I want to enjoy it this year, without choosing clothing to cover up. I fall (just!) into a healthy weight range, but my tummy sticks out and I don't feel I have to energy levels I should have.  I've looked at the 100 push ups challenge, problem is, I can't even do one!! Has anyone stated at this level and completed it?

They are very hard. Obviously you can't do that many straight off the bat! You have to start at the bottom and work your way up. Have a look on google/you tube for a demo of one. I think doing 100 of anything just sounds too dull. I like to mix things up so I do exercise DVD's that incorporate a bit of everything


Don't forget that there are different "levels" of pushups. You can start by doing them while leaning on a wall, and then progress downwards to a desk, then a chair , then a step, etc. Because I have a broken foot at the moment , I can't do them on my feet so I can do 100 at a time from my knees on the floor . I don't do 100 at a single time - but go up and down a numerical ladder 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 with a break inbetween each set.
