And in the end I made it...I finally managed to achieve my goal of 100 push-ups in a row! I must say, it was tougher than I had expected when I started training in mid-August.
The training method I followed proved more or less effective: it took me a couple more weeks of training than the 6 weeks proposed, but anyway...I made it one day in advance the due date!
You can watch the video of my Challenge on the right. As you will see, the last couple dozens were, obviously, the toughest ones. I am satisfied with myself (when I started training my maximum was 20 - not bad as an improvement, huh?) even though I could not manage to keep my body as straight as it should be during the last repetitions...my arms and abs were literally begging for mercy!
So, now I believe I can ease down for a week or so and then keep on training in a less-under-pressure way in order not to lose the shape (why waste 8 weeks of effort?).
A huge thank you to everyone who supported me so far!
If you like my video, you can still go to my Betternow page and donate to help people with Parkinson's disease live a full, dignified life. This is the ultimate goal of my Challenge and the only thing that spurred me not to give up. I hope it will entice you all to help Parkinson's Europe!
Thank you everyone!
