Doing Push-Ups - Not Pushing Up Daisies!


Thirty years ago this month - I graduated from Army boot camp/AIT at Ft. Benning, Ga. A couple days before, my company performed its final PT test. I maxed my score on the 2-mile run and sit-ups, but I fell 2 shy of a perfect 61 in push-ups.

That's always bothered me. So while running and sit-ups have fallen into my rear-view mirror, I've kept up the practice of "pushing away the planet."

And now, thirty years later, I can do 61. In half the allowed 2 minutes. Without breathing hard. 


Drill Sergeant: are you listening?!

This is AWESOME! You have inspired me to keep going and try to get back to those days of 50+ pushups at a time.
