So hows it coming for those trying this challenge? Im pleased with my progress so far. Im on track to make my goal.
Just take it slow so the shoulder rehabs and not reinjures.
Ive always preferred knuckle pushups and find them easier. I have some carpal tunnel so traditional PUs always make my arms swell and tingle.
I did a 90 day cycle of P90X ending last Nov. I was happy to learn 2 new tips.
For the first time I tried PUs on handles. That was cool for diverity.
Also learned some specific stretches to help the wrist do better PUs.
I am going to use this site to rehab my shoulders and up my pushup ability. Our class has to do circuits at times, where the goal is 2 sets of 40 knuckle pushups- so I could use the help.
Im going to start this Challenge.
In the 90s I was up to 150. I was in my peak shape then, many yrs younger, and pre 2 chest surgeries. LOL
I'll be 49 soon. My goal will be to get back to100 PU mark by my 50th birthday. My present to myself.
Thanks for this idea.
Don't forget to do your intial test. To perform the test, simply execute as many good-form push ups as you can. Don't cut corners and please don't cheat - the last thing you want to do is end up in the wrong level of the training program! The results may be humbling, but trust me, honesty is the best policy if you want to maximize your strength gains!
Then start tracking. Please ensure you give yourself a days rest in between.
