For a few months, a while ago, I was rolling out of bed and doing push-ups first thing. I did really well not missing a day and I worked up to 15 or 16 decent normal push-ups. Then my shoulders & neck just went all out of whack. I don't know if the two things were related. I know that doing the push-ups didn't seem to make it worse. And I know that NOT doing the push-ups for about a month now isn't making it better either. (Yeah, I've still got a lot of tension and stiffness through the area, but it's been a stressful time.)

SO. I was enjoying the definition that was developing in my arms, and I want to cautiously go back to doing some push-ups (and/or maybe plank, which I know is really about core strength.)

I haven't decided exactly what I want to do yet, other than to get something going in August.

Anyone want to join me?

I'm planning some serious writing time, starting in August 2014, I know that means many hours hunched over the keyboard, so I thought I throw out a fitness challenges to the team, to make sure I also keep moving.

If you're in the same boat, come into this thread once in a while and let us know how you're adding push-ups or planking into you routine. Let us know where you're starting, and when you add reps or time.

I'm considering doing a sit-up / crunch thing too, but I'm scared. (It's been a long time since I deliberately used those muscles.) If someone else were to toss out THAT challenge (in another thread, just like this one) I MIGHT jump in.

(PS This is one of those CHALLENGES threads I mentioned as an idea in the "About Our Team Challenges & Goals Forum" sticky forum. Remember, anyone can add one.)
