      TeaOlive, looks like you are hitting a wall with the pushups, maybe forget this challenge for a couple of weeks/month and do other weight training.  If you are a member of a gym do some low weight, high reps classes (like Body pump at YMCA) which can definitely help you get strong overall. I think those of us who were successful at this challenge have been doing some strength training for quite a while and hence have a stronger core and supporting muscle structure to push through.  

       

      I am very weak with crunches and other ab exercises, and need to do something about that, and know no single 6 week program will make me better at crunches. Have to do all this other stuff as well to support that specific area.

        MTA:  I hope your trees are alive.  I never heard back from you on my offer.

        I forgot about it until it was too late. I soaked the two in the front the evening before I left. Looks like they may be ok as I think I see leaf buds on them.

        2014 Goal: Run Monkey as my first marathon. Brilliant!

          Happyfeet--  I did pretty much take the last couple weeks off and am now, basically, starting over.

           

          Will see how it goes from here.

                  It's amazing how fast you lose it.  Since finishing the Challenge I have been doing a bench routine, but I tried to do W6 C3 D1 last night and could not even though I was rested.  Huh.

                    That's depressing.

                        You people shamed me into getting back on the wagon. I did a hybrid workout 2x26, 2x30, 2x26, 2x24 and max @ 62. Ouch.
