Labor Day Push-Ups 2016

We continued our Labor Day push-up tradition, and even though we all went in to it thinking that we would not do well due to injuries and lack of practice, we all beat our previous records. Then we did a little extra just to see if we could.

Check out the pictures and video below:

Andrea beat her previous record of 340 push-ups in an hour with 500 push-ups in exactly an hour. Even though her form needs improvement, she continued after Eason and I were finished, determined to meet the 500 goal.

Eason beat his previous records of 300 push-ups in 30 minutes and 360 in an hour with 500 in 45 minutes. He really deserves the credit for modifying our set/rep ratio to maximize our potential. Andrea and him did all their push-ups in sets of 5 to 15 repetitions.

I beat my previous record of 560  push-ups in an hour with 500 push-ups in under 30 minutes and 600 in 34 minutes. I did my first 500 in sets of 20 repetitions, and my last 100 in 4 sets of 25 repetitions.

I also decided to see if I could compete with my previous record from eight years ago and see how many push-ups I could do with someone on my back. You'll have to watch the video.
