A good day to do push-ups…and a good time to beat a world record.

September 24, 2012

Back in 2003, I set the NCAA record for my university’s test of “most amount of push-ups in 60 seconds”, with 119. Now that I’m heading into my tenth year from which I set that record, I have a new number that I’d like to reach: 133. Why 133? Because as of 2009, the world record for most amount of push-ups in 60 seconds is 132 (unless there’s proof that shows otherwise) and I’d like to attempt to beat it.

The push-ups that I will be doing for the record are standard push-ups with elbows positioned laterally, but I like to mix up the training beforehand, sometimes with military push-ups…

…and sometimes with supinated knuckle push-ups. I don’t have a set date in mind, just yet, but at the latest, I’ll probably go for it by June, 2013. Do any of you have any fitness goals for the end of this year or next?
