Hi, I originally posted up about the 100 Pushup Challenge. I still haven't completed the program. (hangs head in shame) But I think I'll restart the program!

There is just one rule with no exceptions: Before victory comes temptation.

When you act without thinking, you don't make the decision, the decision makes you.

I have re-done Week 4 day 1 a bunch of times now. Then I slack off and don't do 2 and 3. So I start back with day 1. sigh.

Sounds like a great challenge! I've been participating with a local bootcamp group in Auburn (fantastic folks) and want to improve my "pushup-ability" for our next assessment. I did 6 pushups today and will start the challenge tomorrow (when I'm fresh). Thanks for the link, I'll be sharing it frequently.

Great! 21 is fantastic!
I got through day 2 week 2 today.

I know I'm supposed to take a day off, but tommorrow's my long bike day, so I'd prefer not to heap too much on, and Thursday's my weight watchers meeting.

(I always do pushups on my lunch break)

Thank you Sarah!! These pushups are getting HARD. However, I just did another exhaustion test and can do almost 3x as many as when I started - only 8 then, 21 tonight! Wow.

Still, I can't keep up with the weeks - I would have had to have done 35 to move to week 5 - and am going to repeat 4.

Talk to you soon!

WOW!!! Yes I guess it would mean that! You are in great shape!

I tried to do mine today but am still a little sore from yesterday's boot camp upper body workout, so Day 2, Week 4 will have to be tomorrow.

Keep it up - see you at 100!!!

Good deal! Having more people keeps me going, and I am so glad I am doing this - particulary when I have just finished a workout. (not so much before :)

I did - wait for it - 65 pushups tonight!!! In 5 sets with pretty good rests in between, but hey, for me, that is unbelievable.

Week 4, Day 1 DOWN!!

Week 3 done again, happily with a higher max. Ready to go with Week 4! Or to bag it and forget it. But let's not do that! We can do this. See you Monday....

Hi there, and Happy New Year! I had family in town and other than one day where I did as many pushups as I could, I didn't do the program.

However, this week I am repeating Week 3 and Monday will begin Week 4! So my new arms will not quite be ready on my birthday (Jan 16, original taget) but not too much later!

See you all soon...

Good good good!!! We are going to do this. I would have given up this week if I didn't know I would have to admit it to you! So I did not, and week 3, day 1 got done. I am sure I will be repeating a week or two but I cannot wait for my new arms! I am definitely stronger....I collapsed and would have chipped a tooth if not on carpet at 8 pushups on my initial test - but I did 17 at the end of Week 2! This may actually WORK!!

Well, I fell of the wagon hard this week. I have been sick for over a week now. I wasn't able to do any of week two this week at all. I haven't even been online to even log in. I am going to restart this coming monday and hope that I can do a full 6 weeks in a row. Keep up the good work!! This is going to be great when we get it done!!!

Good for you! I did Day 2 yesterday and made it to the min of 13 for the last one, but that was IT. And that last one was kind of shaky and lame.

We will see for Day 3!

Day 1 week 2 seemed hard, but I made it through. I even managed to keep up my trend of doing at least 1 more than the bottom limit for the last set.

Good job Sarah! I did Day 3, Week 1 on Saturday and it was pretty tough. My back was starting to hurt a bit and after some Intenet research I found that Incline Pushups (where you put your hands on a coffee table or some such thing) instead of the floor would help with that.

Sue, that may also help you. The articles I read said the incline takes all the pressure off your back and knees. I could only do 8 in my test. If you start in the first category I am sure you can do this!

I did some that way Saturday and some on the floor. The inclines were just as difficult because I went lower than I can on the floor, so the workout was every bit as good.

I am going to try Day 1, Week 2 today. However, I am considering doing Day 3 of Week 1 over. We will see. I will definitely do a bunch of pushups tonight!

I am so glad you are all doing this. Keeps me motivated! I can't wait for my new arms.

Suzy, this caught my eye!

I'm still recovering from being very sick with a massive arthritis attack, but my doctor has me working on core strengthening. I cannot put pressure on my toes, so pushups have to be on my knees.

I am so physically weak it's not funny. I can see definite improvement after 6 weeks of exercising again (I was immobile for about 10 weeks), but can now do 5 pushups!

I know it doesn't sound like much...my goal won't be 100, it'll be 20.

Let's go team!

A while back, a Sacramento Sparker (Weezie30) mentioned a 100 Pushup Challenge she did, and sent me the web link for it.

I am going to do the 'initial test' this week and then start the program Monday (December 1). Six weeks later, I am told I will be able to do 100 pushups!

Now - who wants to join me? Here is the link with the instructions:

http://hundredpushups.com/

To be honest, I don't know if I'll make it on my own...I plan on it, but I know I will if I have company! What do you think?? Any takers?

Suzy
