We all know that a toned core and upper body can help us run, but we tend to focus on our legs if running is our focus.
Not this time! For July I am taking the Push Ups Challenge found here: http://runningbetty.com/pushing-the-limits-709 that she is doing along with another blog I read http://denisermt.wordpress.com.

Want your arms to be Hotty McHot-Hot by Aug? Do the challenge with me!!!!

I just posted a blog on this!!!

My starting point: 15 (regular version). I can't even IMAGINE doing more than maybe, 50 in a row? Yikes. Does it count if I break them up into groups of 25? *laugh*
Yup, just tried again. 15 in a row is my max! This is NOT going to be easy.
Read the hundredpushups plan, as you work up there is a break in between.
Site says:
For example: let's say you managed 8 push ups. Looking at the second column, Day 1 begins with Set 1 (6 push ups), a rest period of 60 seconds, before moving on to Set 2 (6 push ups). Rest for 60 seconds and continue with Set 3 (4 push ups) and Set 4 (4 push ups), before finishing with Set 5 and as many consecutive push ups as you can comfortably manage (at least 5, but not so many that you damage muscle tissue). The 60 seconds rest between each level should allow you to complete the workout, but I promise it will get tough towards the end.
Thank you so much for joining our challenge. :-) FYI...Girlie pushups are considered an alternative push-up and permitted as part of this push-up challenge. *phew* :-P

When you visit our sites, remember to sign Mr Llinky and leave a comment so "betty" and I know to follow you. Best of luck to you all! :-)

Oh thank goodness. I can do twice as many if I do it with the knees down!
Have you all been doing your pushups? I'm on week 3 day 3!
I'm about to work on mine this morning! I'm doing the squats and sit-up challenges too since my arms aren't the only area that could use some work. ;)
hey thanks for the links..I joined up. Looking forward to those Linda Hamilton/Madonna pipes!

Are you going to add the 100 sit ups too?
Today's blog on my site is about this challenge... It's been harder than I expected. I think I may have re-injured my back (I have some old back injuries) during squats and hopefully I'm not pushing it too much... Maybe I'll have to stick to the push-ups and sit-ups for now.

Yesterday was the start of week 4 for push-ups and squats (week 2 for sit-ups) for me. I felt so weak compared to last week! I took the whole weekend off (except for light exercise in the pool), so maybe that's why? Has this happened to anyone else? Today I did aerobics and hoping I'll feel stronger tomorrow.
