The Journey of a Thousand Push-ups…

Posted: December 18, 2007 in Exercise, fitness, muscle, weight, Weight Fat Loss, weight gain loss, weight lifting, Weight loss, weight loss for men

Sans a gym, with only the most rudimentary of dumbbells, and my outdoor workout equipment ruined by rough weather, I am left without a good routine to maintain my strength gains over the last several months- or am I?

Well lots of reps isn’t my usual method of training, and I dislike multiple sets, BUT I am always willing to experiment for the sake of fitness.  So I thought yesterday, why not begin a journey of a thousand push-ups?  Then I thought, a thousand doesn’t sound like enough.  How about 5,000?

So, between now and January 13th, I intend to complete over 5,000 push-ups.  I think I’ll also throw in 3,000 tricep presses, and 2,000 sit-ups.  Wish me luck.

    What I thought you were shooting for when I read the title was 1000 push ups in one setting. Wow! that would be tough. Yah, 5000 over a period of time sounds a lot better.
