#Push-Ups February 1

Coach4aday is a daily blog that began in 2014. The posts are mostly shared ideas to help people grow and learn. You can follow the blog with one of the like buttons found on top left of Coach4aday website

In 2020 some Coach4aday posts will feature lessons learned by completing, planning, and experiencing 30 day challenges. The challenges include physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional.


I have decided for February that my publicly announced 30 Day Challenge is going to be PUSH-UPS. I will have a few others but they will remain private until end of the month.

I have read a number of articles on why, how, and what should be involved in a 30 Day PUSH-UP Challenge. I am adding this habit to my life.

I got my why on doing this challenge from a Harvard M.D. His comments made me feel that this was something I had to get to try. Dr. Edward Phillips of Harvard-affiliated Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital had this to say about PUSH-UPS.

“For older men, the simple push-up can be used as a snapshot of their current fitness. How many you can do at one time offers a measurement of your strength and is an easy tool to help you improve. An average 65-year-old man should be able to do six to 16 push-ups, according to some estimates.”

Well true confession, I attempted to do traditional military PUSH-UPS and I did not come close the average mark of 6 to 16.

I am going to have to start this challenge with Wall PUSH-UPS, Knee PUSH-UPS, and Half PUSH-UPS before I get on to Full PUSH-UPS. That is humbling but the longest journey starts with a first step. I started this morning with 3 sets of Knee Push-Ups (3-2-1). The good news is it took less than 2 minutes to complete.

Here is a video by Andrew Perlot that is going to guide me.

Give you a recap at end of February on how it goes.
