Why 100 Push Ups Daily?

The first questions that are likely to pop up in most reader’s minds are:

#1 To Build Momentum

“Step by step,

walk the thousand-mile road.”

— Miyamoto Musashi

The 100-push up challenge is me deliberately chasing low-hanging fruit.

#2 My Desires To Be 100% Specific

“I don’t throw and hope….I aim and fire.”

— Israel Adesanya

Notice how my goal is simple and specific — the best kind of plans always are.

#3 To Take Care Of My Mind (And My Body)

“To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance.”

— Oscar Wilde

From 2017–2019, I suffered a two-year streak of unending injuries. Multiple-corneal abrasions from boxing? Check. Blowing out my MCL a week after being discharged from the Air Force? Check. Repeated subluxation of both shoulder joints?
