This afternoon, in an Atlanta metro-area park, I completed my 36,500th push up. This marks two years in a row of completing my 100- a day push up challenge. It is also a nice way to close out the year..
that and my brother burning his Xmas tree! Those things burn in a quick flash of glory.

I will have more reflections on my year to share tomorrow, so I will wish you all a happy New year. This is my 150th post of the year in my first year at my new blog. My humble gratitude  to all of you who read and comment.

Peace to you.

  1. You should take a day off in between–muscles need time to repair themselves after exercise. This year, try 200 every other day and add sit-ups on your non-pushup days.

  2. Hi smooth melon,

    Thanks for the virtual high five.

    Yes, I try to pay attention to recovery time. After two years, doing 100 pushups in a day doesn’t really tax me. Not that I can’t find ways to tax my muscles. I can do two sets of fifty, for example, and that can require recovery time. But on a recovery day, I can just do more sets with fewer reps per set, like 25.

    Have u incorporated pushups into ur workouts?

  3. Yes, but not consistently. I have a trainer who throws all sorts of stuff at me, and push-ups are on the list occasionally.
