You may remember that a month ago, I agreed to a “50 pushups a day” challenge, well, because I’m a boy, and boys are easily persuaded to do things like that.
I’m happy to report that, despite previously having performed fifty pushups in a day only twice in my life, I was able to hit 50 every day of the challenge (though my first day’s total was split as the last 25 came after midnight). Not only that, but I ended up doing 3,100 pushups throughout the month of October, averaging 100 pushups per day!
My chest, shoulders and back have never been in better shape, and this was a great example of what your body is able to do if you’re willing to push it. Or if you’re susceptible to silly manhood challenges.
I also love how the pushups have increased my fitness and health, and I plan to continue with them, though probably not 100 a day.
