I've been going through some changes in my life--mainly wanting to get out of a career that has me sitting, or sleeping, for the majority of my workday, or night as the case may be. I decided to go back to school and finish my Criminal Justice degree. Since I've got a little time before doing that, I figured I should probably take the time to begin preparing myself for the physical agility testing that comes along with it. The only thing I can not currently do that is on the required physical tests is the push ups. I figured this would be a good way to deal with it, as well as prepare myself for the academy down the road as long as I stick with it. I know it's generally not a good idea to focus training on one set of muscle groups, but it's the main area I need to focus on--hence the program.
I'll post updates as I go along through the program. I'm hoping that by doing this, it will encourage me to stick with it. Last time I attempted this, I injured my elbow while getting out of my truck at work during the first week of the program. I ended up procrastinating and just never starting again. Feel free to pester me if I don't seem to be sticking with it.
So far, week 1. I'm actually about to start my second day, still a bit sore from the first day. It's not too bad, but far more sore than I expected to be after what seemed like a super-light work out.
If you have no idea what I am talking about, the site is one hundred push ups
Hmm, apparently there's also a sit-up program to compliment this. I'm already able to pass that portion of the test, but I'm going to do that program as well just for my own well-being. Just finished my pushups for the day.
So here we go... Day 1, tier three.
Listening to Eye of the Tiger while doing this lol
