Working My Way Up To 50

This morning, I was determined to do 50 push-ups.  However, I didn’t quite make it there.  I started off strong, but really started to feel the burn when I passed 40.  When I got to 43, I knew that I couldn’t possibly go on, but somehow I managed to squeeze out 3 more push-ups.  I would love to make it to 50 within the next couple of weeks.  I read today that fit men in their 40’s should be able to do 24 to 40 push-ups without stopping.  When I started trying to get into shape, I could maybe do 5 to 10.  I’m headed to 50.  Who’s with me?

Here’s What I Had To Eat Today:

1 Snackwell’s Protein Meal Bar

1 Serving of Nonfat Strawberry Yogurt

1 Chick Fil-A Sandwich on Whole Wheat

1 Mixed Fruit Cup (Strawberries, Apples, Grapes, Oranges)

1 Grapefruit

1 Ham and Turkey Sandwich on Whole Wheat Sandwich Thins with Fat Free Cheese

100 Oz of Water

My Exercise Friday:

50 Minutes of Walking

1 Filming Session including active stretching

46 Push-Ups

My Supplements Friday:

1 Fish Oil Pill

1 Men’s Multi-vitamin

    Is that 50 and taking a break like being in a plank position or doing 50 straight without stopping at all? Either way…whew! That’s a lot of push ups. After you do 50 push ups…you should try doing some burpees. A what? Excuse me? You might say. This move is even more intense and should bring some variety to your strength training. Check it out below.
