Join me in 100 push ups

24 May

Push ups are back! 


After completing the 100 push up challenge last December the time has come for round 2.  The 100 push up program made me love push ups.  Don’t get me wrong, it is HARD work.  You really have to dig deep and just keep pushing through each set. 

What it is:  A 6 week-long structured program of push up training 3 times each week.  At the end of the 6 weeks you will be able to complete 100 consecutive push ups. 

Push ups are such an amazing and basic upper body exercise.  You can complete the 100 doing any variation of push ups.  Click here to see variations.

Want to join?  The 1st week will start next Monday, May 31st – Memorial Day.  Between now and then all you have to do is send me an email telling me you want to join ( and complete the initial test (do as many push ups as you can consecutively and let me know) to see which column you’ll follow.  Make sure to do this at least 2 days before we start on Monday. 

Here’s a sneak peek at the first day:

week 1: pick the appropriate column depending on your initial test results
Day 1

rest 60 seconds between each SET (longer if required)

  up to 5 push ups 6 – 10 push ups 11 – 20 push ups
set 1 2 6 10
set 2 3 6 12
set 3 2 4 7
set 4 2 4 7
set 5 max (at least 3) max (at least 5) max (at least 9)

See you can do that!  I’ll have all 6 weeks up in a few days but if you want to take a look at the program click here.

I look forward to having you join me in this awesome challenge.
