If you are doing them, may I suggest a swimmer's lap counter instead of a hand male. It fits on your finger and is the 21st century way to keep count. Malas are fine for sitting practice still, but given the movement of prostrations you might as well go electronic.
Two? I used to do four!!! Mind you, I am rather fit. I found an electronic counter is the easiest. They make them nice and small nowadays so you can wear it like a ring. I've seen them sold around mosques in Muslim countries for the purpose of counting prostrations.
