work continues slowly on the Wii Fit Plus. got a routine of strength and yoga set up, but the pushups on the wii balance board make my wrists snap, crackle and pop (not to mention hurt). doing some bodyweight stuff at dojo, but even less frequently. working more on coordination, eating better and trying to sleep than on body building. shoulder still isn't 100% (still?!?!?!?), and it popped (and still is tender) on Tuesday while doing a cartwheel.
well, no tags on this one. nothing much has been happening. been thru a series of colds, lower back / pelvis still not right and the holiday rush had me beat. now we have a Wii Fit+, and things are getting better. mostly exploring, and finding out how pathetic my balance is (sometimes doing so poorly, they don't even give me a star for trying!)... more later.
I found the website hundredpushups.com, and looked at it.
Sounded too good to be true, but since I can’t get to 20 without a break, if I could double it, that would be great! I went from too skinny to a reasonable weight after school, but never built any arm strength (too much bicycling, and poor body image, plus general geekieness, if that’s a word). This will be a real challenge.
I expect I will do weeks 3-6 a few times before ‘passing’. I intend to repeat days over and over until I can complete the specified minimum reps. The whole family is doing it, some on their knees.
If it works as well as I hope, the next task will be to use the same pattern for double crunches (crunches and reverse crunches at the same time, kind of like an upside down jack-knife), then on to chin-ups (but probably at half the reps – I think 50 will be plenty), then squats and then …
Who knows where this might end…
