100 pushups

1 minute read

Have you ever wondered what it would take to do 100 pushups? The folks at onehundredpushups.com have developed a 6 week program to help you achieve that goal. I first came across this site a couple years ago, and as I passed the URL around asking if anyone had tried it, several friends and family members agreed to start then. I was well on my way, but then I ended up on a rather spontaneous trip to Asia for a couple months, so I stopped. So this is my call to friends and family who are interested, let's all start today. It's not a competition, it's a way to encourage each other. If you're not there in 6 weeks from now, no worries. Just hope that you can do more than you could 6 weeks ago!

On your initial test, if you find you can't do one push up, try a "knee pushup" where you use your knees on the ground as opposed to your toes, this decreases the load about 50% less through distribution. The site advises you first consult with your doctor, and then to complete and initial test. After that, you're ready to proceed to week one! Let me know if you're participating, so we can encourage each other!
