Going for it today. Still suffering from Siege at Fort Yargo, but I'm giving it a go after work. Shooting for mid 300's

Re: 20 minute push up challenge with prizes...

Allright fellas,

Are you ready for this? I've been known to do a lot of pushups when I was in my wrestling days. Once I did 163 straight just to beat a muscle head braggart in a post race Xterra push up contest.

With God and my wife as witnesses I did 625 in 20 minutes tonight after reading this thread. 36/M/150/5'5"

I really hope no one beats it because there is no way I can top that! I'm a little concerned about how I'm getting to school tomorrow. I'm actually dictating this to my wife right now because my arms are dangling uselessly by my sides.

I can't figure out how to enter my stuff into logsitall though.

Vic

Never mind about the logsitall. I figured it out. Not so computer savy at times.

Re: 20 minute push up challenge with prizes...

I hate to give up my push up secrets but here it goes.

Set your interval timer to beep every 30 seconds. Each time it goes off do a set of push ups that you know you can do. I did 15 each time. Whatever time you don't use is rest time, get up shake out your arms and when that thing beeps your doing push ups.

40 sets
15 reps each set that's 600.
For my last few minutes I did sets of twenty which gave me the extra 25. I have to be honest though. I gave it ALL. I can barely lift my arms today.

Vic
