Here we go - The Final Week!

Today is the 360th day of the year, which means I've hit 36,000 push-ups in 2016. That is the ONLY good thing I can say about this trainwreck of a year.

I have yet to try the Hula Hoop but I'm going to before this week is out!

In a week I will start the First Org Fitness Thread of 2017. I'm going to post a pic that is both an After and a Before pic. It will be AFTER 36,600 push-ups, and BEFORE the Quest for Six-Pack Abs.

When 2017 hits I don't anticipate keeping up with the push-ups because I want to make it back into the gym 3 days a week. But here's what I'd like to say about one straight year of doing 100 push-ups every day:

1. It wasn't hard. You can break up the push-ups into however many sets it takes. I usually did 2 sets of 50 but there were days I did 3 sets of 34/33. On my birthday, a morning in which I was both hungover AND went to the gym AND set a new personal benchpress record (336 pounds), I did 4 sets of 25. That was the only day I did more than 3 sets. I'd say I did them in 2 sets of 50 about 95% of the time

2. It doesn't take long. No matter how many sets I broke them into, it never took longer than 10 minutes.

3. I almost always did them the very first thing in the morning. There were many days that I literally rolled out of bed and onto the floor, and did the first set. The great thing about push-ups is that there is no stretching or limbering up needed. Just do them first thing and then you're completely done for the entire day.

4. They NEVER caused any kind of injury. No muscle pulls, no aches, no nothing. I was a little worried about what 36,600 repetitions would do to my elbows or wrists, but I never had one ounce of pain - anywhere.

5. I have, however, been pumped the entire year! This is the incredible part. My pecs have been pumped for a solid year. So have my lats. All day, all night, 24/7 and 365. Man, that is a GREAT feeling!

6. This exercise has benefitted almost every muscle group. In addition to the pecs and lats, my shoulders, triceps, abs and biceps are in great shape. I've only been to the gym maybe 10 times this year, so all muscle tone is attributable to the push-ups.

7. And the push-ups HAVE maintained my strength. I went into this year benching 300+ and I still can. I went to the gym about 10 days ago to see if I could, and yep! Still as strong as I was 360 days ago. At 57.85 years of age, this kind of strength retention is really important.

8. Finally, and maybe most important of all, I have not been sick for one minute this year. Not one! Never a fever, no chest congestion or infection (quite common in Houston and in Angel Fire), nothing except perfect health. The push-ups have to be the reason for this. This alone should be an incentive to do this - or some kind of great exercise - every single day.

OK, bring on 2017. I don't think anyone is going to be sad to see 2016 leave!

No fitness thread is a real fitness thread without you.

Still love that you introduced me to Eunice Shepherd (was that her name?).

I have kept off the first 62 pounds I lost. I have been at 190 for a while and it is time to go for 140 or 150 this year!!! I am 5'3" and female so I think that 140 would be just fine.

There came a time when the risk of remaining tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. Anais Nin.

So... took me 10:52 today. But in my defense, first time and I ate like shit today. Did you do wide-grip push-ups? I alternated between wide-grip and close-grip for more triceps.

10:52 is really good! I usually took nearly 9 minutes, or even more, every day. But I was doing them for maintenance, not to get stronger. That's the great thing about this exercise - you can make it as hard or as easy as you want.

I didn't do really wide grips. Usually just a little wider than shoulder width. But again, I wasn't going for any particular physical result. And to be honest, about 7 or 8 months in, I was just trying to get them over!

Good luck, keep us posted in the next thread!
