Can You Complete a Hundred Push-ups?


Push-ups are one of best strength building activities you can do. They are good for your chest, torso, shoulders, triceps and your abs! That being said, one of the hardest physical activities you can do is the push-up. Many people can't even accomplish doing 10. Perhaps, you can't even accomplish doing one.

Can you identify?

If you think it is completely impossible for you to accomplish doing 100, 50, 20 or even 10 consecutive push-ups, think again. Many people give up without even trying.

Determine to do push-ups and find a good exercise program that will help you build the required muscles. Take your time and do what you can, while also pushing yourself to do just a little more.

If you can't do standard push-ups, do knee push-ups as they will help you build up your strength. If you can't do those, find a higher surface that you can do push-ups.

I have a goal to always be able to do my age in push-ups. Well, I'm 48 and can do sixty full, good quality push-ups.

But it's tough and I'm not so sure that I will be so stoked about it when I turn 61! LOL

In any event, it's great exercise!
