I created my own push-ups program.
Starting January 1st, I decided to follow the calendar all year for doing push-ups every day. January 1 = one set of one push-up. January 2 = one set of two. March 3 = three sets of three. October 29th, 10 sets of 29. (happy birthday to me!)
and every Sunday is my Rest Day.
what’s great about this program?
well, the push-ups. I’ve done them consistently in the past, and realized the impact they have on building my upper body strength. And being a Lady of a Certain Age, it’s all about the upper body strength these days. Although I’m doing the full body variety, there are many other styles of push-ups I can utilize when these get boring.
the motivation. I’ve purposely limited my goal to one exercise. I can add some planks or squats or short bridges to my workout if I want to and have time, but it’s not a have-to. I didn’t want to overwhelm myself with an impossible goal.
the simplicity. There’s absolutely no guilt here. If I miss a day, no problem. Periods, busy schedules, sick days…this program allows me to pick up on a new day without the guilt of the undone days.
What’s today, January 28th? Okay, drop and give me 28.
