Elevated Push-up

Some of you folks were around as I was struggling with every ounce of my being to master the push-up. For a very long time, it was my arch nemesis. As a matter of fact, my struggle with the push-up and how it has finally turned out is what allows me to continue to have hope that some day I will master the pull-up and the pistol. Last week on a whim I tried an elevated push-up...and was able to do several! So this week I thought I'd share a video.
The hubby, the girls, and I made a cold, snowy trip to Tennessee last week to see the family. I did well keeping up with the workouts and fairly well sticking to sound nutritional practices. I could have eaten less salt and more veggies, but I'll take it as it was. Before I left I snapped a pic of me with Mom and Dad and then one with me and the younger of my two brothers. They're fairly poor quality, but they're fun, so I thought I'd share. And of course, I have to throw one in of the girls and the hubby.


  1. Big Congrats on the push-ups! One of my nemesis' as well.....
    Happy New Year!

  2. Great work, Jennifer! In 2011 you will master both the pistol and pull up (try chin ups first, they are a bit easier)! Happy New Year and keep up the good work!

  3. Thanks, guys! You're right, Steve, pull ups and pistols ARE happening this year!
