I heard something about this a little while ago and was reminded about it today by Rob at Former Fat Guy. The idea behind 100 pushups is that no mater how bad of shape you are in that given the proper training you can get yourself to the point of doing 100 pushups.
Have you ever done 100 pushups? I think I was able once but I am quite sure I can not now. This 100 pushup goal is definitely tough, definitely achievable, and definitely worth doing to probe to yourself that you can set a goal and achieve it.
I am going to try tonight to see how many I can do and post the results as well as updates to when I finish this. You should too.
Well last night I was at the park with my wife and kids and did the pushups. I did 26 pushups and then I stopped for a sec, my wife called it over.
Then she told me to try again, I was tired from the first set and followed it up with only another 13 pushups. Very embarassing, I thought I would do better so that was a little tough on the ego.
Tonight I tried again after dinner. I went right to the end of my energy and I achieved 41 pushups 🙂 I had nothing left so this is definitely the max number that I can do right now.
Good for me I guess I will see how it goes over the next few weeks. How did you do?
