Hundred Pushups

Saturday, July 24, 2010

Has anyone else heard of the Hundred Pushups Program? I hadn't until about 2 days ago. Its actually quite similar to C25k in its structure. Its a 6 week training program where you gradually increase the number of pushups you do at one time. You train 3 times a week and do the pushups in sets, breaking between. At this point I cannot even do a single pushup, let alone 100! But still, I am intrigued. I'm considering giving it a try but with the "modified" push up that I can currently do. Its not the real deal, but its a start. Perhaps once I get to 100 modified push ups I will be ready to move on to the normal ones? Who knows. But its worth a try!

    I haven't ever heard of that program, but now that I have, I definitely want to give it a try! I cannot really even do 1 standard push up with good form today...If I could even get to 50 that would be amazing, let alone 100. Thanks for telling us about it!

    I started this program 3 weeks after I started C25K. I got to a point where I was stuck. There is a team that does this program and I'm going to give it a go again. See you there! emoticon

    I tried it but didn't stick with it. I also was doing the modified push ups. I figured if I could get to 100 modified push ups then I'd go back and try for the "real" pushups.

    I capped out around 35, then life got in the way. Maybe I'll pick it up again and start over.

    If you have an iPod Touch or iPhone they have an app to keep track of your workouts and even has a timer for the rest periods. It's pretty convenient and I think it was either free or very inexpensive.

    I have heard of it and tried to do it, but wasn't successful. You should try it, though; even though I didn't get to 100, I got from like 5 to about 50.

    I've been wanting to look into that program as well. Keep us updated!
