During November and December I found myself fighting pneumonia and bronchitis – – – first time to be that sick in my lifetime! As a result I was unable to exercise for about 6 weeks (2 1/2 weeks of no pushups).
I’ve had a goal of going one year of averaging 100 pushups/day. When you get ‘behind’ by 1500 pushups that is really daunting. Beyond that, it was flat out discouraging to see how quickly stamina and strength seemed to evaporate!
Have you ever found yourself no longer exercising for any reason?
As a result, that 1500 ‘pushup debt’ got wiped out and I’m back to doing pushups on my Bosu! Yes, it took a bunch of ‘small steps’ combined with consistency, and now I’m back in the game!
Here’s the key – I started so simple I could do it!!!
If you haven’t exercise for a while (as in months, years or ever!), start simple. Let it be easy. Be consistent and track your progress. Celebrate those baby steps and soon you will go beyond the ‘wall’ and do some amazing things!
