Pals

I have a friend who is also a Facebook buddy, with whom I now share a new element in our friendship.  Every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday, before 9 PM, we engage in a common activity, then send an e-message to each other about our accomplishment. That activity is push-ups, and we have become Push-Up Pals!

The agreement is to do 3 sets of 10 push-ups, in proper form, and not the bent knee kind, either. The real thing. After our first day of participation in the push-up pal program, I suggested that we add in crunches. After all, we would be waiting a few minutes in between sets of 10, so why not throw in crunches? 3 sets of 50 crunches, 5 different leg positions to work the range of abdominals. That’s 150 crunches, 30 push-ups, and a great little workout!
