Push-Ups: Week 3, Day 2

Oh. My. God.
Tonight's push-ups were really intense. Here's the breakdown: 27, 19, 19, 15, 25, with 90 seconds rest in between each set. That's 105 in total!!! I finished the first set of 27 and I was kinda tired already. And then I started my 19 and by the time I got to #15, my arms were shaking already, but I finished them without cheating. The next set of 19, I started shaking around 10 pushups. I had to push myself up into a downward dog position (hopefully you all know your Yoga poses) to give myself a little rest. I figure if I don't put my knees down on the ground, I'm not fully giving up. I finish the rest of the 19, but I was definitely tired and huffing and puffing. I tried to shake it off as much as I could and stretched out the muscles. I then started my 15 and had to take two downward dog breaks to finish it. And then finally, the last 25. THAT was so ridiculously hard! I took multiple breaks in order to get it done. BUT, I got it done!! I was dying by the end.. but I did them! 105 push-ups baby!!!

But now I'm pretty worried at how I'm going to do for the next day's session. 30, 22, 22, 20, 27!! AHHH!! 121 push-ups!!! oy... that's going to be REAL tough. I'm gonna stick to it and really push myself though. I REALLY want to achieve the goal of 100 consecutive push-ups and the old saying is true: NO PAIN, NO GAIN! BRING IT ON!!

I haven't been to the gym recently. Need to go back. But I just do my push ups at home.

Haha you make push-ups sound like the breath intervals while giving birth.

shane: HAHA.. did the huffing and puffing bring it there? lol.

It was seriously TOUGH for me tho! But I really can tell my pecs have more muscle mass so it's working!
