An interesting challenge… I haven’t focussed on push-ups (or press-ups as we Brits call them) for a while.

Good luck to y’all!

I just cannot match IronDave! I managed 300 push-ups (press-ups for us Brits) today over 7 sets. And he’s usurped me again! Well done to IronDave! (and everyone else for that matter)

Done… took me 2 days, my chest is a bit painful, so are my arms… but I’m glad I did it!
I did by sets of 20 to 50, but I did a few sets every now and then during the day. If I do 100 in one go, I can’t do anything else, my arms are shaking after that.

I did a challenge with my self last year where I did 10 000 push-ups in 25 days. It was 500 push-ups a day almost every day. Every time I had 5 minutes, I would do 50 to 100 push-ups to get to my quota.

I tell you what, that was hard going. Haven’t done that volume of push-ups for a while. My last couple of sets were not enjoyable… My knuckles are sore as anything (I perform them on clenched fists rather than hands – less strain on the wrist and slightly deeper push-up)

I do 5 sets of 25 incline pushups. Then I do 5 sets of 25 at different hand positions. Then finally finish off with 5 sets pushups to muscle failure.

I figure that if you increase your reps by 5 each week, should hit the goal with in a month. I’ll let you know;-)

You guys (and girls) are machines, but I’ll get there yet.

How IronDave and DaddyBoy were able to finish this in 2(?) days is beyond me…

I can’t do many push-ups at the moment, but…I’m doing P90X and it involves a lot of push-ups, so why not challenge myself!

I Biked 100 Miles! I Did 1,000 Pushups!

I’ve got my own push-up program in progress. I’m on 240 reps a day along 8 sets. Each week I increase it by an extra 5 per set so tomorrow I’ll get another 240 completed and then it’ll rise to 280 (35 per set).

It’s murder!!!!

I Lost 5%

I did a chest workout today and thought that this would be a good challenge to complement my chest and arm workout. It’s resulting in kind of a slow pace for reps. My goal is to do finish by May 14. It’ll be tough.
