I've decided to do this (a friend encouraged me on facebook...)
anyone interested in joining me? in 6 weeks you'll be able to do 100 consecutive pushups.
in my initial test i could do 31 today...

at my best shape ever (in high school wrestling) I managed 50... but 100 seems impossible to me...
so i need some moral support
hop on and lemme know you're in...

I'll try, I'm pretty pathetic though. I don't think I'll be able to do 20 never mind 31

OUCH!!!!


I just completed my first day Very Happy

Being a person more focused on running then weight training, this will be interesting. I'm glad I'll have a day of rest to recoup.

I'd much rather run 5 miles then do 10 or 20 pushups but as one gets older you start losing muscle mass. I'm getting to that age, so I need to seriously think about that.

haha
i just finished day 1 yesterday and today I was sore behind my arms (I dont even know what that muscle is called, that runs down my side... near my back...)...

i'm thinking i'm curious if i could fit the 6 week program into 3... i might try... but it would mean pushups every day but 1/week...

i'll keep you posted..

So far my arms aren't that sore. I did push myself, but after what I did yesterday I had thought I'd be more sore today. Perhaps as the day wears on my arms will feel worse Smile

okay, I am new to these forums, but I saw this and had to drop a note to say that "i'm in"! My initial test got 18 out of me, and I am excited to get back into shape after a long hiatus... Laughing

I'd post more to the forum, but I'll have to wait for the burning in my upper body to stop first....

Thanks!
Dan

Welcome to the forum! I'm afraid to say that I have absolutely no desire to attempt this challenge, though I am altering my diet and starting to exercise again.

nice... welcome dan...

i did day 2 of week 1 yesterday and the program picks up really quick... i hope I can keep up... so far so good... this is rough tho... it will all be worth it if I actually manage 100 pushups at the end....

Just the opposite - it gets harder.

I'm on week 2, day 1. Still sticking with it.

How about you guy(s).

btw, I'm on the wussie column of the program - column 2. While I'm happy that I'm not on the school girl column (column 1) its still pretty hard but I'm pleased with the results so far.
