Push-ups with bro

“Hundred,” he boasts,
As he puffs his chest.
Proudly he stands,
As he dusts his hands.
“Your turn,” he says, 
As his eyes gleam.
I take one deep breath,
Myself, I motivate.
My lazy brain, I ignore,
As I kneel on the floor.
My palms meet the cold,
Plank position, I hold.
“Go,” he says, full of encouragement,
His eyes sparkling with excitement
.
I lower my chest to meet the floor,
And my hands are already sore,
Oh, damn floor!
Why are you so far?
I don’t have much power,
I really can’t go lower.
“One,” he says as I finally make it.
Another one, I can’t take it.
“Just one more,” he encourages.
My face scrunches,
As I try to muster the power,
And push my chest lower.
But then I hit the floor,
That’s how it goes, push-ups with bro.

        Thanks Shreya!
        I totally understand what you want to say. There are times with me too when I don’t feel like doing anything . Just give yourself some freedom from the thoughts, if you are feeling disturbed of them…and for once just let it be!!
        Ofc, it’s easier said than done but then the thing which you are going thru is also not easy, haina. So why not try for a better option. I just want to help you in whichever way I can. So this is the one I have found.πŸ˜ƒ

  18. LOL. Is this a thing that happens? Bros get their sisters to do pressups with them so they can show off how many they can do?

    I’ve been getting back into doing these lately at long last. And let me tell you, I used to do ridiculous amounts of pressups and be super strong, but getting back into it after a long break really is a struggle! You can build up strength surprisingly quick though :). Just got to stick with it and they become more enjoyable! πŸ˜€

    And I’m really confused by the picβ€” she has such masculine arms! Very impressive!
