Workout Program Description

This 6-week program created at will give you the ability to complete 100 consecutive push-ups!

Note that the final set each day should be run to max. The number given is a minimum.

Perform tests before weeks 1, 3, 5 and 6 to see how many consecutive push-ups you can do. Then use that number to choose the workout you will do daily.

If you cannot do 100 push-ups by the end of 6 weeks, redo weeks 5 and 6 to build strength.



Perform an initial test to see how many consecutive push-ups you can do. Choose the exercise matching how many push-ups you completed in the test. Rest at least 60 seconds between each set. For the final set, push to max, making sure you perform AT LEAST the amount of push-ups listed.

What People are Saying


challenge workout

The reason I’m joining this program is because I thought it would be a good challenge for me because I have always avoided doing push ups I do not know what it is about then but I just never wanted to even try them. But I thing that by forcing myself to do this exercise for a whole month I will be able to see if there’s a difference in my arms and back. I also chose this work out program because I would like to see my arms a little more defined.

upper body

I am joining this program to make myself focus at least a little bit of my workout routines on my upper body. All of my other programs tend to focus on my belly area and fat. This does not mean that I couldn't use a little more upper body strength and toning as well. I am sure this workout will help me work on this.!

I have never done 100 pushups before, so I thought this workout would be very challenging for me. I hope I will be able to complete the pushups and meet the goal of 100. I can't wait to try it out!

iPhone workout details

I highly recommend showing the number of reps/sets on the iPhone app for reference in the gym...also, if it defaults to the next day's workout that would be awesome!

The description text showing how many sets and reps doesn't seem to appear on the iPhone app on my phone (works for other workouts). Is this a bug in the app, or a setting or some missed field in this workout?

I think this will be a great program to help increase the total number of pushups I will be able to do consecutively. I look forward to hitting the 100 mark~

The program is out of sync with the original one, could you please update it?

Awesome Program

I agree with Flutinkat. Doing "unreal" push ups, I can do 70, but frankly I can only do about 30 proper push-ups.

Progress feels great

I really like the simplicity of this plan. I'm going to take a before and after picture from the 6 weeks and see if there's a difference. It sure feels like there's going to be, feeling the burn.

So the weight you put in is your body weight?

Ha, it's embarrassing how few "real pushups" I can do. Wow. Well, that's the use for the program.

I am interested in joining this however, will it be updated to match the numbers at

Created over 7 years ago by jimlivingston


cool plan

I like the number based goals reaching toward 100. Should be enjoyable to try to get all the way up to that number.

At the website, the program has been revised. The number of reps in each set has been shuffled around a bit.

The huge jump

Since this question never got answered...the reason that the program jumps from 5 reps to 15 reps when going from week 2 to week 3, is because you are supposed to re-test at the end of week 2. If you cannot do 16 push-ups, you go back to week 1 and start over, hopefully moving up from level 1 to level 2.

this program works.

I just started week 5 and can already do sets of 80. 100 is soooo close!

Push-up weight

I don't know if you guys saw this, but someone looked up the % of your body weight for each part of your body (hopefully that makes sense...) Anyways, I copied what they had written in my journal, and the upshot is that for push-ups you can use 75% of your body weight for the lbs part when filling in the workout sheet.

I just keep updating 1 workout

Then I can see the progress looking at total reps on the chart.

Question about graph.

Is there anyway of placing all the days you have done onto one graph instead of repeating points on different graphs?

Created over 7 years ago by samjohnno


RE: Workout sheet question?

The way I've been filling out the worksheet is removing the exercises that don't apply. As in if I fall into the I can do more than 10 reps, I remove the other two. I don't enter in weight since I doubt this will do a good job of calculating an angled weight... I use this website to calculate out calories burned for this workout:

I'm going to try to be faithful to this program along side the RHC. A little something that might be a "duh" to most, but I've read a couple of blogs from people doing the hundred push-up challenge. The main recommendation is that one should do this first before any other exercise. Like running. Or else you may just be spent by the time you get into position.

Workout sheet question?

When you fill out workout sheet, do you enter any weight in (% of body weight or something)? I was wondering so we can get accurate count of calories....

Created over 7 years ago by stansj


Need help

Im not sure how to fill out the workout sheets can someone show me how they filled out their latest entry? do I fill it out once a week?

Created over 7 years ago by cerebralcow



For those interested, this program was updated on 7/23/08 as we had the wrong sets entered for weeks 5 and 6. It's all correct now!

Excellent to hear!

I'm thinking I may have to repeat weeks, too, lol.

Created over 7 years ago by JuryDuty


Huge Jump Suddenly

Week 3, Day 2 seems to jump from 5 all the way to 15 ... I could barely do 15 just doesn't work. I'm having to repeat weeks on this.
