Push ups for life

first_img Print Article The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… “Operation Push for a Cure” has been set for May 26. The time and place will be announced at a later date.“I wanted C.C. to have time to get ready,” Cheatham said. “I don’t want to beat him but I will.”Matthews let Cheatham’s confidence roll off his shoulders like water off a duck’s back. Then, with a smile, he upped the ante.“The challenge is how many pushups we can do in a minute?” he asked. “I can do about 60 in the first minute … so let’s make it interesting. Let’s make it how many pushups we can do in two minutes. That’s when it starts to get a little harder.” Skip Dr. Phylecya Cheatham looked personal trainer C.C. Matthews straight in the eyes and gave him fair warning. “If you don’t practice, you’re going to get your feelings hurt.”Cheatham is taking very seriously her Relay for Life challenge to Matthews. “Back when I was in C.C.’s Boot Camp, I was doing pushups and he came over and whispered something about a pushup contest. I decided, ‘Let’s do it.’ But I wanted it to be more than just a challenge between the two of us. I wanted it to really count for something.”Cheatham is on the Doctor’s Building East Relay for Life team and thought she could turn the pushup challenge between two very competitive friends into a fundraiser for her team. “I got to thinking that making the challenge a Relay fundraiser would make it even more interesting and motivational,” Cheatham said, with a smile. Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson If Cheatham flinched, it didn’t show.“Okay. Two minutes it is,” she said.What if the trainer beats the student? What if he wins the challenge?“He’s ex-military and he’s a body builder,” Cheatham said with a smile. “He should be able to do it. But it’s all about lifting your own weight and I don’t weigh as much as he does. I’m not nervous.”Sponsors may lend their support by stopping by theDoctor’s Building East or calling 807-0235.

They think I can do something like a hundred or more. I can’t.”For those who think that Cheatham just might be pulling their legs and can pump a hundred or more pushups, she also has a ‘civilian’ level of membership. “The civilian level is just a flat rate at whatever you’d like to donate,” she said. “All levels of support are appreciated.” Latest Stories Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Acid Reflux (Watch Now)Healthy LifestyleIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?
