Pushups galore!

Yesterday was Chest/Shoulder/Triceps.  Out of all the weight training days - C/S/T & Back/Bicep are the hardest by far!  I LOVE them!  I don't know about you, but I'd rather do 20+ different exercises rather than 2 sets of a lesser number of exercises (like in Chest/Back). 

This workout is full of push ups - lots and lots - all different styles, varieties and speeds.  I am pretty good at most of them.  There is something just so 'satisfying' about being able to do them. 

I am up to about 15 +/- of the one arm push ups (on knees still)...

And I can do 15-20 of the clap push ups (on knees).  I am not getting as much height during the clap as showing in the picture below... but I'm still doing them - and that's all that counts!!

Anyways - another great workout in the books!!  Tonight is XStretch.. and to be honest, I have not spent much time at all on this one.  I'm looking forward to it!  After this workout, and going skiing on Sunday, I really need a good stretch - and a massage would be nice too!


  1. ROCK ON! Well done and I'm happy to see such fit women still using their knees. My first run in the program I got discouraged because I barely made it off my knees but seeing this and reading your progress makes me feel better about using my knees for round 2.

    Honestly I'm more focused on my form than keeping up with others on the video.

    Enjoy your trip and you'll enjoy XStretch it feels amazing to get all limbered up!

  2. UM - we totally ENVY YOU on those one arm pushups on the knees even. when we first tried it we did it against a wall and was still struggling. way to go!

  3. You are a rockstar! Ok I am motivated to make it to 15 one arm push ups!!
    I can only do 8-10 of the clap push ups. Now I am aiming for 10-15 hehe!! Way to go!!

  4. One armed push-ups?!? Oh man, you are making me a little scared of starting next week. Just when I thought I was getting the hang of P90X, Tony ups the ante. Fantastic job for doing so many.

    I love, love, LOVE x-stretch. It's fantastic and you will feel wonderful after you are done.

  5. Yeah, those 1 arm pushups are tough. Mostly for keeping balance. I gave up on clap push ups. I cannot seam to do both at the same time. Either I forget to clap or I forget to push up. Odd.
