Today was my first push up workout from the site http://www.100pushups.info/programe.html. It called for me to do 5 sets as follows:
Max (but a minimum of 25)
Wow, this was a tough workout. I was shaking by the end. I managed to easily do set 1 and 2, but set 3 and 4 were very tough. After my rest period I got down to do set 5. I got off 10 in a row and started to get shaky, but pushed onward. In the end I maxed out at 27, just 1 short of my tested amount of 28. Wow! I just calculated that I did 101 pushups in the span of 5 minutes! I'm still aiming to hit 60 straight and can't imagine what that will feel like to accomplish. This was a hard workout that I will repeat on Wednesday.
