I finished redoing the second week of the hundred pushups plan. I’ll do a progress test Sunday morning to determine whether I’ve improved enough to move up to week three.
I think I’ve found a way to make the pushups easier, or I could just be fooling myself. I trying adding a kind of pop to the end. Instead of pushing myself back up slowly and steadily to the point where my arms are fully extended, I started trying to pop back up quickly after a slow start. It might at least help me build fast-twitch muscle fiber which will help me with throwing a baseball or swinging a bat.
