"Drop and give me 10" was something we heard from the coaches as basketball players and sometimes baseball when something was done wrong. Back then the 10 or 20 push-ups were absolutely no problem and only took seconds to complete. It has been many years since I could drop and give 10 push-ups.
At 59 years old and 235 pounds I doubted I would ever again be able to give 10. This winter I have been working out more, a lot more. A couple days ago I did actually complete 10 push-ups with the body totally straight with my body lowered down close the floor and then back up until the arms were straight. Let me assure there was a considerable amount of grunting, but it was done. Actually, two days in a row.
After many years of sedentary life, I felt like this was a big deal. I would like to know if it is to most 50 plus, or have I been way behind the curve?
