Trying for 100 Pushups

Like many of my fellow fatbloggers I’ve signed up for the One Hundred Pushups Challenge. The correspsonding program is a progressive training program designed to slowly, over a period of at least 6 weeks, get you from sloth to stud. At least that’s the idea.

Yesterday I did the initial test which simply calls for you to do as many well-formed pushups as you can. I managed 15 before I crumpled to the ground in a quivering mass. The program calls for a 5 level progression done 3 times per week. I will normally be doing it Monday, Wednesday and Friday but since I am anxious to start and I took the initial test on Monday, I started day One today.

Based on the results of my initial test for week one I need to do 10, 10, 8 and 6 pushups with a 60 second rest in between and then a final level of as many as you can do with a minimum of 7. I managed 11.

Seemed as though it started off pretty rough. Tomorrow I’m going to need to do 12,12,10,10 and at least 10.

I like the idea though, and I like how I could feel both my heart working and my abs, so this is more than just for my arms.

Given my weight, I can’t imagine being able to do 100 pushups in a row but I’m going to start the program and see how far I can get. Who knows?!
