It’s time for another push up video! We are moving along in this second round, 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. This definitely has me encouraged!
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 well! Now we are going to look at two more ladies who have both improved since the first round.
First up we have Hypermommy. She did alright in the first round, but I am expecting a big jump in this round. I hope she doesn’t disappoint me.
She has lost 10 lbs since joining the challenge, and I am really proud of her because I know that it hasn’t been easy for her.
Weight: “Too Much”
Reason for joining the challenge: “Strength Training and Weight Loss.”
# of Consecutive Push Ups In the 1st Round: 4
Please note: If you are reading this through email or a RSS feed, you may have to click through to the website in order to see the videos.
So, there was a decent increase from the first round, but I was looking for more. I’m going to have to work with her on her form, but in her defense, she wasn’t feeling well when she shot this video.
Next up we have Roseline. She did a lot better than she expected in her first video – 28 modified (from her knees) push ups! Since that time, she has been hitting the weights in order to build up her upper body strength, so I expect her to be able to do normal push ups this time.
Reason for joining the challenge: “I want to build up my upper body strength.”
# of Consecutive Push Ups In the 1st Round: 28 modified
Although, she didn’t come down as far as I would like (2-3 inches off the ground), I am proud of her for moving up to doing normal push ups! She didn’t think she would even be able to do one before shooting the video.
Be sure to cheer all of the challengers on, and give them encouragement and tips.
