100 push ups a day

Recommended Posts

Started yesterday.

 

Goal is at least 100 push ups a day for the entire year. Split up in sets of 10 or 25.

 

I may add 10-20 or more per day each month.

 

Also might add 100 sit ups a day, and probably pull ups starting with 10 a day.

 

Anyone care to join me?

 

I’ll be posting updates in here if there’s any interest.

 

20 more push ups to go for today.

I started to do this last year and got out of the groove and ended up quitting. I’m glad you posted this because I’m going to start again!

... Well Shank, you are twice the man I am!  💪  I do 2 sets of 25 push ups every other day. At 65 it keeps my muscle tone and strength at a good compromise of strength and flexibility. Good luck in your new program.

Yeah, I need to do this.  I've got to get my core stronger, which is the main cause of my back problems.  I started yesterday, and I've got to do this in baby steps.  Man, I remember in my Marine Corps days when push ups, sit ups and pull ups were like drinking water.  Now, I feel like I'm 80 and can barely muster a few of either.

I’ve had to take it easy with my shoulder. It has really been bugging me a lot. So my workouts besides running all but stopped, and even then it was painful sometimes to run.

Yesterday I got so PO’d that I said enough is enough and cranked out 100. My shoulder feels like a million bucks now. Or at least 900,000. Much better anyways.

Can’t do that buddy but will root you on.

When I started my fitness program in February I had trouble with 5. I’m up to 50 three times a week. I bummed that Barbajo saw my fully vested. It’s tough to see how much weight I’ve lost under a chasuble.

You will quickly move away from 100. Recommend 200/day working up to 4 sets of 50, with a pull-up pyramid. Great for core strength, flexibility, and will definitely help those large group “golfing “ muscles

I think this could be a worth while challenge. Count me in on this... Need something a little extra since it's -17 or colder here 😞

poor dog doesn't even want to go outside

... Ain't life a ton of fun? After my intestinal infection almost 2 years ago when I lost almost 30lbs I have struggled to gain it back. I have regained 20lbs but those last 10 are proving very difficult because I eat healthy. Lots of grass fed, free range meats and organic vegetables, but very little carbs and no sugar. So I would gladly take 10lbs off your hands if you can spare them.

Thanks. I’m already at 130 for today. Pushups have always been my nemesis. Long arms, long travel, low reps.

I’m a twig, trying to add a little (very little) bulk, but keep under the 175 Mark.

I recommend baby steps and also listen to your body. Muscle soreness is a cost of doing business but there is a difference between soreness and pain. If you’ve not exercised these muscles in awhile the increased load is going to put a good amount of stress on your joints. Your muscles support your joints. As they become more able to absorb the increased load the more your joints will be able to tolerate the increased activity. Most injuries occur in the first couple weeks of a new training routine.

After spending 31 years in the Army I have certainly done my fair share of push ups, sit ups and pull ups. The best way to achieve positive growth while preventing injury is to complete the exercise correctly and increase load gradually. Every muscle movement has three phases; the concentric phase, eccentric phase and the isometric phase. Your goal should be a smooth controlled movement through these three phases.

Set realistic and achievable goals, be patient with your progress and expect to slide back from time to time, and good luck.

I’m all in!

I do a minimum of 100 push ups and sit ups a day. I try to do 100 curls 3 days a week. That one gets ya.

I'll jump in on this as well. I'm just going to do the pushes though. I've done something similar before and time can get away from me. 100 is good. Last time I did this I'd break out 10 at a time whenever I think about it and keep a tally on my phone.

I have one of those fancy peloton bikes for cardio / core / flexibility but I don't do much upper body. This'll be good.

I saw a video of this on YouTube and the body transformation of one of the participants was pretty impressive. IDK if I can stay motivated to do this on top of superspeed, but good luck to everyone else

I'll join you! I'm not sure I can do 100 a day at first but I know I can get there! I had my second back surgery 3 years ago (a microdiscectomy followed by a fusion) and I'm just now starting to get my life back to normal but I'm excited to get my core strength up specifically, as well as, muscle tone in general.

If it's all the same to you, this fat guy will pass. But, as of next week, I'll be on the total gym 5 mornings a week.
