Push Ups, Ouch!

This week was the start of week four of the 100 push up challenge. As evidence by the below video's we are progressing along, sort of.

Although you will see me getting to a whopping 19 push up at one time, I have stalled at this stage. Unable to get past 19 push ups, I have gladly repeated the week 3 schedule, and will continue to do so until I can complete all three days.

Chris on the other had found an interesting way of getting an injury from push ups of all things (let me remind you the man runs over 60 miles a week, and has never had a major running injury). So last week what began as a bothersome achy big toe, ended up as tendinitis. How does one get a big toe injury, you ask? Take a close look at the video.



Yes the form could use some improvement, but ya know I'm a beginner.


See the stress his poor toes are put through? Someone needs to be wearing shoes when he does his push ups.

Colleen- Yes, the more I watch his video the worse my push up form looks. I mean how can he keep his head so still.
