One Hundred Push Ups
« on: July 20, 2008, 09:27:52 am »
So I saw this on lifehacker, and I want to try it out.
Basically, over 6 weeks you work your way up until you can do 100 consecutive push ups.

I'm going to start it, but I want some forum members to join me. It's ok if your not in shape, that's the point of this
Let's start 7/21 and end at 8/29. Doing push ups every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday

Who wants in?

Might as well give it a shot.

Edit: Tried out that Initial Test. I'm Rank 3... barely.

Should make a list in the first post to get everyone's progress organized.

My Initial Test: 15

First Day of Training starts tomorrow, I s'pose. Being a monday.

Initial test was 20.
Can't do no more.

I haven't worked out for a long time now. Maybe I'll give this a try.

my initial test was a puny 16 and as I've got nothing better to do I'm in.

Kid: Oh wow I'm being deflowered by a grown woman!
Mother: By the way I'm your mother
Kid: OH GOD NO

EDIT: That's where it becomes rape if you were wondering.
