Thread: one hundred pushups - who's with me?

  1. #1

    Default one hundred pushups - who's with me?

    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.

    Sure, I'll start on Monday and do the program on Monday, Wendsday and Friday. I can do around 12-15 so i'll be a level 3.

    I'd do it, but I can already do 100 push-ups in one go.

    I'll work on 200 though.

    I'm in Daria, and I'm level 4...not too shabby for the old man on the block, though I don't think we want to make Happy Lurker mad at us. 100 is most impressive. I've been wanting to get back into some exercising, and this might help. I wonder if there is a site like that for sit ups. I used to be able to do 50 sit ups in 3 minutes. We had to do if for gym.

    By the way, two of our 3 kids went to Tech. Our son graduated in 97 or 98, can't remember, and our daughter graduated in 2001, and then taught English as a grad assistant the next two years. One of them must have been there when you went, though it's a big university. Go Hokies!

    I could give it a shot...I would suggest lifting weights a little bit too, since just pushups isn't much of a workout...

    In the PE class at the school I was at we started off with 5 sets of 10 push ups then as the year went on we went to 10 sets of 10.

    In sit-ups we did like 150 at the end of the year. For the ones who could keep up anyways. I noticed a big change even half way into the school year, I loved that class.
