Yesterday I was challenged in the comments of one of my posts to a Push-Up Challenge by a fellow WordPress blogger whom I know as Koko. At first I thought, “Yeah, right, a push-up challenge, I’m not doing that, that’s crazy.” Then I thought about it a little more last night and thought, “What’s the harm in it?” So, today is day 1 of my push-up challenge with Koko (if she accepts). As I understand it, the challenge will simply be, do as many push-ups as you can each day. So, Koko (and anyone else who’s interested) post your daily push-up count each day on your own blog and perhaps tag it with “#PushUpChallenge.” I’ll need some encouragement and probably jabbing from all of you readers to ensure I do it.
Here are the challenge rules I’m going to abide by for myself.
- Real Push-ups. No tee pee’s or from the knees push-ups
- A complete push-up is all the way down (full bend in the elbow) and all the way up
- This is a 20 day challenge, so the end will be on July 6th, 2015.
- I’m competing against myself, I’m not going to worry about beating anybody else’s numbers (if you want to beat me though, knock yourself out, though you may want to set a little higher goals 😉
Aside from that, that is all I’m using as my rules for now. I figured I’d post a video of my kick-off. I don’t expect anyone to post a video of their push-ups and I don’t plan on doing a video of all of mine either. This challenge is an attempt to better my own health and fitness and this is simply an addition to my overall MainPain Challenge, so join in for your health too. If nobody joins, no worries, I’m still going to do it. Choose your own rules that work for you. Invite others and make it your own challenge. Maybe a sit-up challenge or something else.
*NOTE* If you are accepting this challenge, do post in the comments so I can go follow your blog and see your progress.
