As I've noted here before, I have NO upper body strength. I've just about given up on doing even one pull up (I can still do only half of one). I've tried to lift light weights and do other exercises, but it's just not enough to keep me going.
I'm hoping that signing up to do the 100 Push Ups Training Program will give me a reason to follow through. (It might work. Signing up for half marathons is the only thing that keeps me walking.) If that doesn't work, my 16-year-old son has bet me $20 that I won't be able to do it -- now that is incentive!
The program on the website http://hundredpushups.com/week1.html is pretty straight forward and seems doable.
So, this weekend, my son and husband and I will do the initial test and we will start the program on Monday. I'll keep you posted on our results!
