    Man… Now I feel pretty lame giving up after about 15-20 push-ups.

      Gotta start somewhere :-)

    That's a pretty hectic schedule for two weeks, YFS.
    I must say, your video prompted me to take the challenge. I regularly do 40-pushup sets, so no problem, one hundred seems within range. Not so, not so. I wussed out in the mid-sixties, and my right arm and chest are still cramping up and sore. Gotta work it up slowly, I guess.

    Sounds like you are having fun and I really appreciate you that you supported your wife to her dream and you did it more than that. By the way, I enjoy watching you in the video doing push ups. It’s incredible. Thanks!

      Thank you! When married or in a relationship, I learned that it\’s not always about me. I felt better seeing her smile than being selfish and insisting we go on a tropical vacation. Thanks for the confidence boost for my next pushup video :-)

    Woe! That must have been such a gorgeous experience! I’ve been in Amsterdam for a month a couple of years ago and I had such a great time! I’m looking forward to your post about your big journey, I’m sure you are full of great experiences!

      I had a great time! Some I can talk about and some I can\’t lol. I have a few blog posts coming in the future talking about them.

    I’m going to go eat a doughnut and watch your video.

    Wasn’t Paris awesome? We had a great experience there….much different than I’d been told we’d have. People were far more pleasant than I expected them to be…which taught me something about how to act and who I am as a person.

      Paris was quite different than what people specified it would be. People would say that the people were rude.. I didn’t find that to be true at all.. the people were nice! The food on the other hand was a bit dicey.. until we found some not touristy areas.

    I think a friend of mine is trying to get me to join the 200 Squat Challenge. Barely a year ago, I pushed myself to do 300 squats. It's weird, but my back hurt more than my buns. I couldn't even walk, I shuffled. I'll pass on the 100 push up challenge. I'm a girl. I can do 100 push ups over the course of a work out, but there's no need to hammer out 100 of them suckers in a row. I probably can squeeeeze out 25 without stopping if I really tried.

      300 squats! Woah.. Impressive! What did you do to train up for that.

        I just exercise. My regular workouts include a lot of squats so my muscles didn’t fail me when I went for 300. By the way, they weren’t consecutive. I felt like it was more of a mental challenge than a physical one. But I get a lot of my workouts from BodyRock.tv. The site is pretty amazing.

        I agree with you.. the workouts are definitely mental. When I lost count for my pushups, I thought I was at 85 for some reason, so I keep pushing and pushing until I collapsed. I don\’t think I would have completed 94 pushups if I kept count. Mind over matter I guess..

    Sounds boring. :)

    I can take you on the 100. Did you see my Insanity body?

      I'm going to check out your blog for the insanity progress. Last time I checked you looked ripped and suddenly got a tan!
