Re: 100 pushup challenge

1st post.

I've been doing the 100 pushup, 50 pull-up, 200 squat, and 200 sit-up challenges for about 3 weeks now. I am on week 6 for pushups and week 5 for squats, sit-ups and pull-ups(@the amateur level). Ive been super-setting these workouts 3 times a week (MWF) and have gotten pretty good results. Today is my 100 pushup test and I can post results/progressions if y'all want

Re: 100 pushup challenge

Started it this week also. Just did day 2 and am really feeling it. I have been using them on the days do not run. Now that the weather is nice I am doing more distance runs than lifting/WODS.
I have also been adding additional rounds throughout the day.

Re: 100 pushup challenge

Don't know if anyone else has seen it, but there is a similar app on the android market(probably apple too). They have pull ups, squats, and sit ups too. So far I think the website is more challenging.

Re: 100 pushup challenge

One of the biggest problems people have with pushup numbers would be breathing. A lot of people hold their breath.

Also, I count by twos so I only need to hit 50 before I do 100 actual pushups. Trust me, it helps.

I can do over 100 straight before I hit the leaning rest.

Anyone ever tryr this program out?
Also, what do you guys think about applying this to hand-release pushups?
I've tried it and it worked fine for me, give it a try. It's a nice, simple workout. Make sure to rest and eat properly.

Good luck!

Re: 100 pushup challenge

Day 2 Week 2 was today. Feeling pretty good with it. Sunday will be the next Max day to see what week 3 looks like.
I have been using the day workout as one of the supplemental lifts on weight day. Did it after running today and felt pretty good.

Re: 100 pushup challenge

I'm going to have to give this a try..I've been doing most of my pushups crossfit (games) style..with a hand release at the end. Has anyone used this program to do a 100 crossfit games pushups? It seems like it would be harder because gathering momentum would be much more difficult..

Re: 100 pushup challenge

I tried the program a while ago. I started at around 70-72 push ups and was only able to add a couple to my max. I didn't finish the whole thing because I wasn't progressing at all. The couple more reps on my max was probably just because it was a different day. The best way I have found for me to increase my max reps is to increase my max strength in a similar movement (bench for push ups).

Re: 100 pushup challenge

Nice job Aidan!

I think I pooped out around 31 hand release. Sorry to bail on my own post but I did put the 100 pushup challenge to a halt to focus on training up for the NE Garage Games Firebreather Festival. Its this weekend so ill be doing a retest sometime next week.

Re: 100 pushup challenge

These standards should exist in many diverse areas of physical training. 100 push ups, 40 sit-ups, 3 pullups, etc. I think it is wise to not neglect any area, certainly not in any major areas. You should probably be able to achieve a minimum standard (or higher) in all popular repetition exercises. In addition, you can adjust the numbers around based on your own body type and personal athletic style (more cardio, less muscle mass, more speed, stronger trunk and legs, less developed arms, etc.). Peformance can vary based on what you train in, and one thing to watch out for are the big gaps you can have if you don't pay attention. Like being able to rep out some impressive numbers in the bench or curl, but not being able to run/jog a mile in under 9 minutes for your life. I think everyone should have a challenge number in all categories, and diversify.
