Most of us are either at, or rapidly approaching, the one-month mark! Give yourselves a huge pat on the back!
Down to business: How are y’all feeling? Have you reached the point where you have to break them up into sets? Are you finding yourself making adjustments to accommodate sore, stiff, or just plain tired muscles? Are you going for form or for speed? Does swearing help? (It certainly does for me!)
I played catch-up this weekend and did a total of 435 push-ups over the course of three days. I was definitely going for speed, and was really quite sloppy about it. Nevertheless, saying that my arms hate me today is a bit of an understatement. I’m planning on taking my time with my pushups from here out, doing them with as perfect form as I can – stomach to the ground, no arching my back, and a full hand release. No more doing them just to get them done. There will be much swearing.
