While I am not doing the push-up challenge along with you guys, I did go jogging today for the first time in recent memory! My wife went for a jog while I watched the babies, and then I went after! We are both going to try and get some exercise every single day.

Okay you guys, you inspired me. The ONLY reason that I wouldn't be participating in this is due to sheer laziness.

So I just did my 100 push-ups.

Day 1: 100 push-ups

Agreed. If I get twinges I’ll take a few days off and start lower again. This is very much like media buying to reach growth targets. Work our how to increase a bit at a time. Expect drops as well as increases.
Right. Tim Ferriss explains that often your body's ability to recover is lower than your eagerness to build muscle. In his concept, you do the minimal effective dose to spur muscle growth, then take it up from there.

Day 2: 100 push-ups. Did half as military push-ups to hit my lats a bit more.
I had to Google “military pushups”. What the heck?! They hurt!!

Day 5

2 x 20 normal pushups.
2 x 10 military pushups.
(60)

My kids love watching this.


I also took all three for a bike ride this afternoon. Except I don’t have a bike so jogged... way faster than I normally would.

I’m beat today. I’ll stick at 60 for a few days to get the hang of these military ones.

Exactly. The recovery is just as important.

Also... I remember my athletics coach telling us we have to “Get fit to train.” The body will wonder wtf is going on so I better listen to it and not get injured.

Hi guys, this challenge must be the easiest ever proposed on the forum, all you have to do is 100 pushups with good form per day for 30 days, no matter how you do them, all in one sitting or spread out during the day.

I just failed my first attempt after 5 days...
So I'm debating wheter to restart today or tomorrow.

How it went: Day 1, fine did them in one session took me nearly an hour(was resting plenty and doing other stuff meanwhile), Day 2 it was brutal I completed it still in one session but most sets where 5 reps(day 1 they were 10), day 3 I spread them out during the day and hardly finished them up before going to bed, day 4 pretty similar to day 3, day 5 I get to 49 and in the last 20 there's something off in my right arm... like I pinched a nerve or something it felt super awkward, not hurting but like it's about to mess up so I stopped.

Weight has a huge role since I feel like my joints would be much happier if I weighted 20 kg less..
Restarting the challenge while keeping my calorie intake lower, debating wheter to count calories or not.

I'll be taking one picture per day and maybe make a small video at the end.

You're all welcome to join and see if physical progress can be made from such a simple exercise.
Ok. I'm down.

For awhile I was doing 3 sets of 25 for 75 total every day, then after a couple of weeks moved to 3 sets of 33 for 100. Recently I was doing 2 sets of 50.

I might be rusty for the first few days, but I'm in, this will be a good morning routine for me.

YES X1000!!!!! Listen to your body!!!!!!

I did p90x a long time ago (10+ years ago, gross) and I remember hurting myself a few times. Did a few weeks of it like 6 months ago and hurt myself again! After this I started looking in to proper ways to work out. Turns out a huge portion of the way they literally tell you is "the right way" in p90x is 100% the wrong way!!!

If I had only listened to my body I wouldn't be as messed up today as I now am. Ugh.
