Patrick, I agree. I will be training for two paddle board races in early July but will resume some paddle board strength training immediately after and will make an attempt at 60 sometime in August. As for a future goal of 100... Hmm... that's twice my age... yep, sounds reasonable to me! Lets do it! Should be fun ( unless some young Special Forces guy comes along and pos out 120+. Any idea how to request a
criteria change for future records reflecting the " no knees on the ground" standard?
Nice job Patrick. I don't want to be critical because this was GREAT work but as a former US Naval Officer I have to say that it is disappointing that the Record Setter criteria allow for resting of knees on the deck during the push up count. Under US Military fitness regs we would be disqualified and have to start the count over again each time a knee hit the deck. Therefore I couldn't allow my knees to touch during my record attempt. My opinion is that the criteria should probably be changed to reflect this going forward. However, this was still great job and will hopefully encourage more and more people to take fitness out of the gym and into the outdoors (and especially on paddle boards!!)
