As an aging martial artist and fitness buff I am always looking at ways to stay in shape and increase my strength and stamina. As I wrestle with father time and try to beat him at every move, I find that to continue moving forward I have to challenge myself in a myriad of ways.
A few years ago I took a 90 day challenge and lost over 30 lbs. This year I am taking a year long fitness challenge and as part of that I am currently doing a 30 day 100 push ups a day challenge. Now I'm in decent shape for an old guy but let me tell you this is no piece of cake. The rules are as follows: Five minutes, 100 push ups. It's that simple. Break it up however you want 2x50, 4x25, 5x20, 3x33+1, whatever works for you. I have been at it for 4 days, I started a couple of days early and I can feel the difference! I hope you will consider joining me. As always with any challenge like this. Set your own pace but push yourself further than you normally go. That's how you achieve greatness in anything you do.. Just my humble opinion. As always don't hurt yourself. If you have serious pain, STOP! Check with your doctor or chiropractor before you continue...
Oh, by the way. I am looking into a martial art that a friend led me to via youtube called Aiki Jitsu. I think this might be the next big challenge for me in regards to my third black belt. If I can find a school in Charlotte that teaches it. I have a lead on a school in Mint Hill. I am hoping to observe their class soon.
Here's some additional info I found about it.
Until next time,
