In a moment of weakness (no pun intended) I thought about giving this thing a try, maybe altering it a tad due to being older than dirt. Then the other day I managed to start a tear in my right rotator cuff. No pushups now, I am just gonna try to hold off surgery as long as I can. Damn, I don't want to do this again, it has the most painful post-op pain you can imagine...

I have observed that post-op recovery. I'll say prayers for you, OBG!!!

I second the motion that week 3 sucks. I'm in my second week of trying to successfully get through week 3 while I cruised before this week! First I tried to do week three day 1 in the recommended rest time of 60 seconds; no luck. Then I tried with 5 minutes and I was successful. Second I tried with three minute rests and I was successful. Tomorrow I'm going to attempt with two minute rests. If successful, 1 minute rests then say goodbye to week 3 finally (hopefully)!

100 pushups in 6 weeks is 2.38 pushups per day. I can do this!

Just finished week 1 and I'm ready to take on week 2. Pushups are much easier now, and are actually fun!

I seem stuck in week 3! I can get by day 1 with double rest time, but I've repeaded the day at least 6 times!

I'm stuck too, even when I switch to "girly pushups". blush

Still, I'll keep at it. I can already see a huge improvement, especially when carrying the canoe.

i'm sticking with it too. I've changed to 5 straight days a week followed by two consecutive rest days. I'm sticking to two minutes rest between any sets, any day. I think the 5-straight days may push me to the next level. I'll post again when I finally get to week 4.
