#22kill push up challenge - Day 21
It's the last 2nd day of the 22 push up challenge, and things has changed, especially perception. It was originally meant for challenging on my strength. At this point of time, I took it as a will challenge. I know exactly what will power is, and we don't get the power until we obtained the ultimate control of our own mind to do something we "think" we can do it. Instead of think, we start to do it.
In today's video, I'm give you a hint of my weekend life, how I am properly "tuned" to my weekend routine, chores after chores, and more chores. I'm glad I find time to answer @justinparke and @futuremind, and I talked a little bit about why sometime I look lethargic doing the 22 reps, but sometimes I look very energetic and did more than 22. Since I have talked about it, I'm not going to repeat it here.
I'm also kick starting my interval sprint running routine. Frankly, even for an 800meter sprint could take my life. I did not wear my facemask when I perform the sprint and I know I could kill myself if I had my face covered. There's not enough oxygen to the brain on rapid elevated heartbeat.
Fortunately, the park has almost absolutely no one. I though I came too early, but the sun position suggested otherwise. Looking at the west, scanning through all the way to the east, there's just not much people around. It's a good thing for me not having my mask on since I'm doing the sprint. But, where are those "health conscious" people that popped out of nowhere couple of weeks back? I remember last week there's still so damn many people walked their dog... sorry I mean their boyfriends... I can't really tell apart nowadays. Not forgetting those who wear perfume for a jog at the park. I really thank them for not showing up today. I promise I will continue to run as long as these people doesn't show up.
Anyway, the challenge has to end tomorrow, and I still couldn't decide if I should continue. But I will most probably NOT going to make more video after this. May be I will still make, but definitely not forcing you guys to see me doing push up only.
For some reason the initial tag that should lead me back to ASEAN HIVE doesn't capture, and therefore the post were left out from ASEAN HIVE community. Thousand apologies on that.

Thats a nice watch bro!
Thanks buddy. Got it for free, uncle doesn't want it anymore, so he gave to my son. But the boy have no use case to it, so I took it out for heartbeat monitor purpose 🤪
nice.. make full use of the watch bro💪
Looking good bro. I enjoyed watching the cool chore clips in the beginning. It added a special flavour. Especially that part where you ate half a burrito in one bite :D
Thanks for the shout out and explanation. I learned a bit about pushups in the military so I can expand on this a little bit. When you do the pushups widely, you're working more of the pectoral muscles, and when shoulder length apart (or closer) you're working more of the triceps in the arm. You will feel it more in the chest the more you refrain from letting your stomach/chest touch the floor as well, because the strain from those muscles is never released. Same applies for the triceps.
It's also true what you mentioned about the strain on the shoulder joints and natural pushing motion. Also the orientation of where you place your hands makes a difference too in this regard. Like if you keep them directly in line with your shoulder, or further outward with head level, or inward towards stomach area.
Best form is shoulder width, unless you really want to work those pecs, and then try not to let the stomach touch the floor, but it's always good to maintain a keen observation of how your joints respond and should search for the comfort area where joints are impacted the least, and as you slowly increase the muscle strength around the joints, then you can slowly push these limits.
For your daily challenge without a break, you have done really good no matter what. Most people cannot commit themselves to maintaining this kind of workout daily, so give yourself a pat on the back if it doesn't hurt too much to do so :P
Enjoyed the desolate park photos too. It's always better when the park is empty because then you can look for shrooms without people looking at you like you're crazy :D
Have a good sleep, see you tomorrow :)
You are right. Basically any movement will be in loving wear and tear to our body. Therefore, the closer to the chest motion actually bring least harm to the joints but stress more on the biceps and chest. Whereas going wide would stress more on the forearm and the back muscles, at the same time due to the wide angle twisting movement, joint wear become more severe.
I can take out that burrito in one bite, but the wrap is hard to chew, so I choose not to.
It's great my friend. Health is always something we should aim for
When will you start posting actively again?
There are a few negative things happening in my life. but for sure i will come back one day soonest my friend
