Awesome Fro!  Great job!  I'm doing the program also.  not as far along.  I did a total of 140 today across several sets with 17 being the most in a set.  Great job!

The main appeal to me is that it will keep you from getting burned out on the same old exercises while still getting a great total ab workout.

So my BIL told me about a website/app that he is going to use to get in shape just by doing push ups. The site is http://hundredpushups.com . You start by doing a test to see where you stand, then you follow a weekly program and, supposedly, within 7 weeks you will be doing 100 push ups. I figure if alternate this program with the "Prep for a 5K" program that I'm already working on (and mix in a healthy amount of sit ups), I'll be ready in no time. Speaking of sit-ups....Do you guys think that this hundred push-ups program would be interchangeable with sit-ups?


Just as a side note for all of your doing any sort of push-up challenge or workout - don't neglect the pulling aspect of upper body!

You know that look of the slouched over shoulders?  Sometimes that's from the muscles in the front of your body being stronger (and/or tighter) than the back of your upper body. 

To be honest, it's actually better to do a lot more pulling (think of like inverted rows with the TRX band or single arm bent-over dumbbell rows) than pushing anyways.  Shoulder-health-wise, strictly pressing and not incorporating a 2:1 ratio of pull to press can actually lead to shoulder tightness, pain, and immobility over the years.

Just wanted to add that to what people do with the hundred push-up test.  What about the 100 inverted rows test too?

Love the site, though.  It's so cool and specific!
