If it's all the same to you, this fat guy will pass. But, as of next week, I'll be on the total gym 5 mornings a week.

I love my Total Gym!

As to the 100 push-ups. Guess I'll have to be an honorary member as I only got through 50 today.

I did 100 pushups at my gym today!   Not all at one time yet however I did five sets of 20 military style.   I'm puffing out my chest like a stud bull in a pretty little heifers pen.   I usually do 60 during my gym visits (four times per week ) however today I decided to bump it up to 80.  I was doing my cool down stretches and thought, no way am I leaving without knocking out 20 more!  I'll be 69 years old this November so the old man is still humping it.  Hooah! 💪

Nice work OG!

I was about to revive this thread again!

I am starting over on this deal on OCT 1 2019.

The beginning of FY20.

I hope everyone that was active in here earlier in the year will join me again.

Thanks for bumping this up good sir!

You got it partner!  Exercise is so important in every aspect of our lives.  Two years ago there is no way I could do what I accomplished today.  Giving up alcohol 1 1/2 years ago changed my life in so many ways.

OG you're spot on - I think the older one gets the more important it becomes. I see so many guys my age (72) that struggle with balance, and even simple exercise such as walking at a reasonable pace. I know I can do more push-ups today than I could do at 60.

Great job Ole Grey. I did 80 myself today at the gym this morning. Four sets of 20, getting nice and low and slow. My damn shoulder gets me off of the 100 a day challenge. So I’m doing 80-100 3x times a week. For strength and core building. Push ups are really the ultimate. And adding in planks and pull ups ( if we can do them ) are one heck of a work out. I do believe a 100 a day for maybe 3-6 months would show some huge body changes in all of us

Thanks Money!  Yea there are so many seniors who give up on their health when they get older where I see it as you need to step it up. If the good Lord permits there are still quality years left and to live to our fullest, we must take care of our bodies.

My balance is a large problem for me.  This part of getting old is hard to deal with however I figure a steady diet of exercise is the ticket to the majority of our issues.

Haven't seen any activity recently on this thread. Now that winter is kinda officially here wonder if anyone is taking up the challenge or has continued. If you have since the inception of this thread have you noticed a difference in your game?

I notice that every time this gets revived how bad I am at keeping a routine. It’s almost time for a whole new year of push ups, and I didn’t complete this one... time flies.

I'm in the same boat. Every time I recommit I say that I won't stop and I do. So maybe the 3rd time is a charm and I will continue. I started back into my routine yesterday and expect to have the big guns ready for spring golf. BC and BK will be envious 🙂

OG I know this is an old post - but you might want to try yoga for balance. The Katherine Roberts "Par" course has an entire dvd on poses to improve balance.

@ole gray I'm pretty proud of myself with the new exercise routine I put in place this past December. In addition to the workouts which I alternate every other day. I'm doing 50 push-ups and 50 sit-ups each in the morning and late afternoon workouts so that equals 100 each every other day. At 73, I feel better than I did at 50 or 60. Now let's see how that translates to improved swing speed 😂

That's awesome Tony!    Age slows us down a bit however it does not define how we take care of our bodies.   Keep pushing forward brother and your body will thank you.

Ok Tony. The bear has been woken from hibernation.

As soon as I can get this chest congestion under control I’m all in. Been feeling about 35% for the past 2 weeks. Zombied out with no energy.

My shop decided we are going to start training for the Marine Core Marathon in October... push ups can only help... right? [emoji51]

Get a good rest first and clear up the congestion then go at it. You young bucks should set a 200 a day target. Can't wait to see the long term workout results on my SS.

Day 1 in the books.

115 total.

Feeling much better. Still around 75% but can’t complain.

Cool - keep at it.
