One Hundred Push Ups-Week 1

I’ve heard some people talking about this neat one hundred push ups challenge, so I figured I should try it out. It’s basically a 6 week training program that has you doing sets of push ups so that at the end of 6 weeks you should be able to do 100 consecutively. It only takes a few minutes a day and 3 days a week. I’ve always been okay at push ups, but could never do 100. I maxed out at 50 once, but my average is ~20. I started the challenge last week and hopefully in a few weeks I’ll hit the goal of 100.

Initial Test: I managed 25 push ups (which puts me at a level 3 out of 7…1 being the worst and 7 being the best) .Even though I did more than 20 push ups initially, I’m still starting with week one.

Day 1

Set 1:  10
Set 2: 12
Set 3: 7
Set 4: 7
Set 5: 25
Total: 61

Day 2

Set 1: 10
Set 2: 12
Set 3: 8
Set 4: 8
Set 5: 40
Total: 78

Day 3

Set 1: 11
Set 2: 15
Set 3: 9
Set 4: 9
Set 5: 40
Total: 85

So far the program seems pretty fun. If I’m hitting 40 in the first week, it looks pretty good that I’ll be able to hit 100.
