Earlier today Copra asked a perfectly valid question. He even offered a bit of a throwdown. (which sounds fun BTW)
Now as you are at it, why not start Two Hundred Sit-ups program, too?
I’ve been pondering over starting either, but up till now I haven’t had any motivation to do so. However, now I think I have a reason to start anyhow.
How about a blogger challenge on this one?
I originally started to post this in the comments, only to realise that it really should be a post in it’s own right. Something to do with me being just a tad verbose. (say it isn’t so!)
It just so happens that I am looking at doing both the two hundred sit ups and two hundred squats programs as well.
The thing is I don’t want to burn out. I actually am trying to establish good long term habits. A lot of people have gone through these programs and reached their goal, only to stop afterward. I don’t want to do that.
I plan to finish the push ups plan, and then pretend that week 6 is like the movie groundhog day. Simply keep repeating it. Keep the habit of doing it three times a week.
A week or two after I have that established I am going to start another of the programs, most likely the the two hundred sit ups.
Once that one is completed I plan to continue it as well and move on to the last.
When it’s all said and done I should be doing either the week 5 or week 6 of all three programs three times a week. It will likely take about 45 minutes to do each days workout.
Instead of doing this as just a one time “I can do it” kind of thing I am focusing all this towards the final workout I plan to have. I just have to take it one step at a time.
Right now I am building the foundation for what comes later.
Now, to answer your question about using a challenge to motivate one another I am all for it. It will just be about four weeks or so before I am ready to start the sit ups phase.
You are more than welcome to join me =)
