One Hundred Push Ups-Week 5

I have just completed my fifth week of the Hundred Push Ups Challenge. At the end of last week I wasn’t sure if I should continue, drop down the reps, or repeat week four. I decided I’d try the first day and see how I felt. Since I was able to do the first day of push ups without a real problem I decided just to keep moving forward.

I’m a full week behind schedule now, but I’m okay with that. I’ve been trying not to do arms at the gym because it really makes a huge difference in my stamina for the push ups. This is a little annoying because I like doing pull ups and free weights at the gym, but the main reason I fell behind was because I over did my arms at the gym and couldn’t do my nightly push ups then.

The first day this week was the first time I had some minor pain in my hand. Around the end of the third set I had a pain in my palm, I tried to adjust my weight but it was still pretty uncomfortable. I stretched my hand out a little bit and that helped the following sets be bearable.
