On day 242, I reached my new high for consecutive pushups. As I have mentioned before, I usually reserve monday for my max day for pushups. One day, when I can finally do one, I will add pullups into the mix, but in the meantime, it is pushups. When I got up to 50, I felt like I could possibly go for 70, when I got to 60, I still thought I could hit 70, but was getting tired. My previous high had been 72 about a month ago, and since then I did not have any major breakthroughs to speak of. But when I got to 70, at that point, it was pretty much pushup by pushup. I am not saying it was too pretty, I was struggling, shaking, and had to hold the plank position pretty much after every pushup, but I was still on the same set, and pushed it out to 80.
I have been asked before if I am touching my nose or chest to the floor, the answer is no, I am not because I feel more shoulder strain when I go below parallel. So, in the meantime, that is as far as I will go, and believe me, it might not be as hard as chest to floor, but it is not easy, at least not for me. My plan is that when I get to 100, I want to see if my shoulders have become strong enough to go a bit lower.
In the meantime, I am grateful that I can do any pushups, considering where I started eight months ago!
