It’s time for another push up video! We are moving along in this second round (there is only 1 more post left after this one), and I am really proud of the challengers for their progress. For those of you who missed it, here is a recap of how everyone did during the first round. We had 20 challengers sign up and send in an initial video.
Some people have made great progress, and I even have had people who are not officially in the contest tell me about their improvements!
Even if you are not one of the official challengers, you can still take part in the 100 push ups challenge and keep me updated on your progress via email. I am hoping to see a lot of people decide to “unofficially” join the challenge – especially with all of the New Year resolutions that people made this year.
So far we have seen YFS make a 20-push up jump from his first round performance, and then Alexis & Katy posted gains as did Roseline & Hypermommy. After this video, you will then get to see two more ladies who both made improvements from their first video.
Here we go with my video. But first, I want you to see my first attempt because it was so pitiful. I am hoping that watching this will make my 2nd video look better ;-).
Name: Fat Guy
Weight: 287 in first video, currently 259.8
Reason for joining the challenge: “Strength Training, Weight Loss, and to avoid running a 10k!!!”
# of Consecutive Push Ups in First Video: 8

Here is the direct link to my first Fat Guy push ups video on YouTube.
I struggled so hard in that video and I couldn’t even get to 10. I am hoping to be able to at least double the amount from my first video this time.
Well, I won’t bore you with a whole lot of talk about how I’ve been sick and busy recently, or how I injured myself running; I’ll just show you my latest attempt at doing push ups…
And here is the direct link to the 2nd round of Fat Guy push ups on YouTube.
Let me assure you that my chest was going down pretty far. I know it was hard to see that because of the hoodie (that’s what I always workout in), but you can also take a look at the angle of my arms to tell (they form a 90 degree angle when I drop down).
So…what do you think? Are you disappointed because I didn’t do more? Should I have said something either before or after?
