Fit for windsurfing?

by Maarten on July 27, 2008

When you go windsurfing being in a good physical condition¬† is essential. There are a lot of ways to get your physical fitness to a good level. One of the easiest and cheapest ways to do this are push ups. You don’t have to buy anything or have to go somewhere. Every place is suitable for push ups. The NY Times had written an article about push ups and how they serve as an indicator for your overall fitness. As a man you should be able to do 27 push ups with out trouble. As a woman should be able to do 16 push ups.

When searching for some fitness info I stumbled upon hundredpushups.com. This site is promoting that everybody will be able to do 100 push ups in six weeks, no matter what level you are on right now.  That sounds to good to be true! Everybody wants to do 100 push ups with ease. I will start with this program and see if I can reach the 100 push ups in 6 weeks. The gained fitness and strength will come in handy with windsurfing!

The initial test resulted in 23 push ups and now I am at week 1 day 3. Lets see if I can reach that goal of 100 push ups.
