100 Push-up Challenge

New week, New Challenge!
I came across this website called one hundred pushups and thought, "What better way to improve my upper body strength and tone up using my own body weight?" Not only is this a challenge for me, but for my husband, too. Push-ups are great for toning and using core strength-an important element in any fitness regime.

Since our last challenge ended(21-day detox), I felt compelled to keep us motivated, and one key way to staying motivated is to set up goals.

We are going to start Monday and the plan is for 6 weeks. Today we did our test to see how many push-ups we could do without compromising good form. Taking that number, I will go to the website and find a plan of action for the next 6 weeks. If you are interested in doing it along with me, go to http://www.hundredpushups.com/ and find out exactly what to do. Learn how to do it correctly and there is even a website/blog badge that says "i did the hundred" to proudly post once you've completed the challenge.
Below is a video of my test today. I hope it works since I'm emailing it from my phone.
