If to strengthen thine flesh is to strengthen thine lord's flesh, then by doing so, you strengthen thine devotion to thine lord's will. *Blurb for Push-ups*

Any good push-up/work-out mantras to share?

P.S. This is a poor attempt at salvaging a double post, but it's really time for my daily push-ups and such. Why no *Delete Thread* option under *Full Edit*?

Push ups just aren't the same, if you readily do them. I'm never ready, but willing.

Also Seppli, you only use 'thine' when the following word starts with a vowel. This follows for 'mine' and 'my' as well.

My push-up mantra goes a little something like this...

"Push ups get you laid. Push ups get you laid."

As long as it's sounds like 'Ye Olde English', it's okay in my book.

Just do some push-ups, yo!

The more you do, the easier it gets. Aim to improve by one push-up per day at first. At the end of a month, you'll be doing 30+. Scale your routine from there.

When I do my push-ups everyday (along with crunches and all that stuff) I just go to my mental check list. Doing that gives me enough motivation to do them because in my mind I always think, "When I get these out of the way I can move on to the other stuff". Plus, if I don't do any exercises on the weekdays I feel sluggish, which is why I do 30 pushups every weekday.

Now, I am weak. *push-up* But through exertion and loss of blood, sweat, and tear the future shall see a different self. *push-up* The present pain in my biceps and triceps will fade but my strength will not. *push-up* With hardened Steel and Flesh I shall descend upon my enemies with keen righteous fury. *push-up*

Are looking for a mantra that lines up with your push-up motion? If so, the Carl Winslow mantra does the job pretty good.

3-2-1 (on the way up)

1-2-3 (on the way down)

What the heck (on the way up)

is bothering me? (on the way down)

If you keep a good, slow cadence with the mantra, it can help you maintain your push-up cadence.
