Push Up Contest At Yahoo!

Over at the Vendor showcase day at Yahoo! they were doing of all things a push up contest.  Everyone was getting me on to try it.  The record was 201 push ups by a Yahoo! super stud.  (Stu Y.)  The rule was that you can rest on top or do a downward facing dog.

I topped out at 114 and couldn’t go on.  I took 2 breaks, should have taken my time. Stu supposely took 10 breaks.   My muscle just couldn’t pump anymore.

This got me excited about another goal to shoot for: 202 consecutive push ups.
