So, I was perusing some of my favorite blogs, and I came across this post. This challenge intrigued me – a lot. So much, in fact, that I am going to join the fun!
I took the initial test for both today. I did have to do the pushups on my knees because a “real” pushup just kills my back. (I have a herniated disk in the lumbosacral spine)
I was surprised by how low my pushup count was. I really thought I could easily do 30, but that just leaves *lots* of room for improvement. I was equally surprised by how high my crunch count was. I do not normally do that many crunches at once. Typically I do rounds of 20 crunches.
My pushup count landed in the Rank 3 category, which apparently is pretty common (so I guess I should not feel so bad). My crunch count landed me in the “very good” category (yeah me!).
I am going to do a Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday routine. That should work perfectly with my Monday, Wednesday, Friday gym routine (except that I meet my personal trainer on Thursdays, too). I am really excited about this challenge, honestly.
I’ll let you know how my first day goes (tomorrow).
