  1. Funny I started a challenge with a group of girls. 100 push ups a day. I also started a challenge of 30 burpees a day. I am doing both along with my 5 minute planks. 3 day a week home workouts and occasionally jumping on a rebounder. I am 60 years old. I have osteoporosis and I have been weight training since college....��‍♀️ Let's see how this goes when I am back at the gym. Will I look better when I get back to the gym🤷‍♀️

  2. Yep exercise can help but as you said you're 60 years old so you should get any doctor or expert advice before starting any exercise. Anyways stay safe and healthy.

  3. Thank you so much this article was extremely detailed as well as encouraging.

  4. Glad you liked it.

  5. Once you can do a few, it will become easier to increase reps. For me the first rep in a set is always the most difficult. I can do 50 as a 66 year old female but I like the diamond pushups better because I have large strong triceps and they feel more comfortable. There are many variations and I always love doing them as a finish movement after doing triceps or chest.

  6. @curlcutie, sounds like you have really strong triceps because diamond push-up are much difficult than regular push ups, that's great. 🙂

    I told her about my challenge when I went in two days ago because I had some complaints in reference to something else.....she knows how I am with weight training since she's known
    My challenge is to get other girls to try and do at least one of the things I am doing. I do all three of my challenges every night, and actually my back pain is feeling better, yay. Turning back time.
