As you have been reading this past year, I love Zumba. I enjoy the music, the exercise and my “front row ho” friends. It is super. The recovery from my knee surgery has been quite slow and so I have added some new things to my workout. Chisel is a great class that ties in the energy from the music and the dynamic of the class to achieve strength in weight bearing exercise. Sounds great, right?
Well, I have been taking this class for a while and I cannot perform a push-up. I mean a real tried-n-true man’s push-up. I cannot and will not turn 50 years old and not be able to do a real push-up. So I spoke to the instructor for help and she turned me on to 7 Weeks to 100 Push-Ups! http://hundredpushups.com/
I have enlisted the help of some friends from the gym, friends from work and anyone else who can get on this bandwagon of encouragement to do 100 push-ups. I figured if I make this public, I cannot and will not back out. (I need that)
I went to the website and took the initial test. Sadly, I cannot start the 7-week program because I cannot do even 1 push-up. Therefore, I am in the preliminary 4 week weenie program where I will start with wall push-ups, then counter push-ups, then on a chair and then to the floor on your knees. OK, so that was somewhat of a set back but hey, I am on the way.
I will update this blog as I go so please jump on board with me. Post a comment on the blog so we can share our support, laughs and ultimate success! I fell like an iron man already.
