Make it a Mala Instead

Published on June 8, 2011 by in Health & Fitness

Just about the first comment I received in regard to trying to accomplish 100 push ups in 7 weeks was from my yoga teacher Swami Atmarupa.  She said “It should be 108.”  The number 108 is a very auspicious number in yoga (for one, the mala which is used for meditation has 108 beads) and I should have thought of it myself, but I didn’t, which is why she is the teacher and I am the student!

Well I am about 5 weeks in and managed to complete the following sets:

Set 1     Set 2     Set 3       Set 4      Set 5     Set 6       Set 7

12          12           18            18            12         12            32

So in approximately 15 minutes I did 116 push ups!  While I am happy to see some progress I am not convinced that within the next few weeks that I will be able to complete 100 non-stop push-ups, oh wait, 108 non-stop push-ups.  It is one thing to rest in between sets and another to continue without stopping.  Since I have moved up to a “mala” perhaps that will be the inspiration I need.

I know that there are so many of you waiting bated breath to find out if I will accomplish my goal!  😉

Will check in after the 7 week.
