The Push-Up! Part #1

It's Saturday! Hooray! Today I'll share with you a little video that is about my goal of doing pushups off of my knees. As a heads up, about :10 seconds into the video it turns sideways, but don't worry it'll switch right side up as soon as I start to actually attempt the pushup. That sound you're hearing besides my voice is indeed the famous San Francisco wind. I promise to try and be a bit more tech savvy for future videos. For now though... enjoy! And stay tuned. I'll post a "Push-Up part 2" video in about 6 weeks!

  1. You could have at least picked a soft spot for yourself!! Are you on an asphalt walkway? This video is lovely just to see you!

    Oh, and I'm drinking a steaming mug of Good Earth tea right now, in your honor =)

  2. I know!!! That's a little bit of why I kept laughing when I was doing the pushups on my knees. I was thinking geeez this hurts! And my Padres towel unfortunately was not very think or protective!

  3. I love this video. It will be wonderful to look back on when whipping through pushups is as easy as can be. You are so lovely! Keep smiling - we're all on your team; Padre fans or not.

  7. Thanks Keri! Today I tried pushups off the wall. Step feet about 2 feet away from wall and do push up with hands flat against wall you are facing. I'm finding it a great way to start. Then incorporate pushups on my knees and eventually off my knees! And yes, I promise next time I'll do my pushups on a much softer surface (I promised my knees too!).

  8. Go Padres! Love the video.

    Where is your pushup workout this weekend? It is not to late! Set the timer, just do it for 2 mintues. Go!

  9. Thanks Autumn! I definitely got my arm work out this weekend with my painting and priming. Do you have a routine you recommend? I think you shared one with me before, every other day doing a few sets of push ups and gradually trying to add in ones off my knees? Does that sound about right?
