phase II fitness – stage I. 100 push-ups and 200 sit-ups.

i cruised past losing 90 pounds by the year and even though i’ve slowed up a bit on the rate of weight loss, i’ll hit 100 pounds lost sometime in february.

so what about that phase II fitness program focused on strength training?

i’ve been slowly working with dumbbells doing a few reps here and there to get out of the OW! OW! OW! phase and am now ready to commit to a fairly simple goal – build up to 100 push-ups and two hundred sit-ups over the next 7 or 8 weeks or so.

it certainly fits in my original requirements of not requiring a lot of expensive equipment ( maybe a few dumb bells), that can be done a few times a week for relatively short periods of time ( 30-60 minutes ) that will play well with running ( i.e. not looking to bulk up ).

and, as importantly, i’ve never been able to do either in my entire life. so i get to kick 30 year old me’s ass all over again 🙂

whose in with me? if you start, let me know how the progress goes!
