I've been looking to improve my upper body strength lately, and a friend recommended the one hundred pushups website. The idea is, you take an initial test and then based on the results of that test, you start off doing a few pushups spaced apart and, working on pushups three times a week, gradually build your upper body strength until you can do 100 at once.
As I am pretty weak (I can do girly pushups though) I could only do a couple and wound up in the first level. So I started today, doing four sets of two pushups each, and then three pushups for the last set. It's not time-consuming and you can take breaks between the sets, so I'm hoping I won't have much reason to procrastinate. I'm not real optimistic about my ability to make it to 100, but I figure I can at least tone my arms some.
So, anybody want to try this with me and share their progress? I find it easier to stick with these things when you know someone else is going to be asking you how it's going.
