I know what you’re thinking – one real push-up isn’t much. Until now though I could do zero real push-ups, so that’s a 100% increase! Not bad at all.
There are three explanations for my newly found ability to perform a single push-up:
1. Supernatural powers;
2. I am getting lighter; and
3. My arms are getting stronger.
I doubt it’s the first. Alas, I am pretty sure it’s not the second either. I have, however, been doing fake push-ups for over six weeks now, and my arms have been getting stronger. It has got to be the third reason!
I will see how many push-ups I can do tomorrow. How many can you do?
