Yesterday I began Week 4 of the push ups program. I am surprised at the increase in strength I have experienced, but I am still not sure that I will be able to meet the 100 consecutive push ups goal. I was thinking about doubling back to week 3 in order to buy some more time, and gain more endurance, but I may see how week 4 goes.
I share a problem with a friend that also tried the program. That problem is with breathing. I am finding that at higher reps I am having considerable difficulty processing enough oxygen. It may be that my friend and I are both lacking in the cardio-fitness area. I would not deny that for myself. I am hoping that with increased cardio workouts, that will change. We’ll see!
