So my husband sent me the link for http://www.hundredpushups.com/ which is a training program that after a 6 wk plan you are supposed to be about to do 100 push ups in a row! Originally I was going to do it w/ him but I am having some tendinitis issues in my wrist and weight bearing through it is painful. SO....I decided to attempt the 200 squats plan and we were both going to do the 200 sit ups (crunches really).
The guide/plan says that on the initial test if you do 50+ squats in a row you are excellent, but I felt if I pushed it I could bang out 100. Well as it turned out I did 201 STRAIGHT :) I added one to show off ;) I was pleased w/ that and it only took a few min and I am SORE!!! today (in a good way).
I ended up doing 80 crunches bc I was shooting for 77 to be "excellent". By the end my abs hurt so bad, almost like..I'm gonna barf hurt...but I am disappointed I am not sore today from that. I am stoked that I beat my husband too (he only did 50...teehee!)
So I am going to try this every other day (although I may need more recovery time for my legs...I am usually more sore the 2nd day and I am already having trouble going down stairs!) I like it bc it's simple and quick and something DH and I can do together :)
Who wants to try it with me
