I continued the 100 Push-Up Challenge today … The new boot provides adequate ankle/foot support, so I didn’t need to use the kettle ball.

Week 4, Day 3, I continued my improvement over the initial attempt at week 4, but only in the final exhaustion set. I failed to complete the final 2 defined sets, achieving exactly the same results as last week, but I did improve in the exhaustion set. I did a total of 123 push-ups in 5 sets with 1 minute rest between sets. This trails my personal best set in Day 2 this week.

After I complete the Week 4 exhaustion test, I will continue with Week 5 of the program next week. The set/rep structure changes a bit, and I’d like to see if it helps me achieve larger numbers.

Here are details on the 100 push-up challenge. Join in and amaze your friends when you can do 100 push-ups without stopping.
