Good effort everyone, the timing of this tread couldn't have been better for me as I am looking to jumpstart my weight loss, active lifestyle journey.

I am in starting today June 1st, 2020.

First attempt: 20 push-ups and 15 situps! will add more throughout the day! I just want to commit myself before I think myself out of it!
Finally made it to 100 pushups by 11.55pm. the most pushups I have ever done in one day these 46 years of existence! Also did an hour of cardio and 100 situps. I will keep going!

Great challenge if only am 20 years younger! So I will pass.
A guy in the thread did it at 56 (I think). Scroll up for his video. He started just doing one a day.

You're a youngster at 46. My suggestion, commit to this challenge, and one or two months from now 100 pushups will seem more realistic. Keep with it and you'll start to feel 20 years younger.

(This is coming from a 45 year old was overweight 2 years ago and started a similar challenge last year. My goal was to get to 50 in one shot, which I accomplished earlier this year.).

Thanks a lot that is very encouraging, I am fired up to continue.

Congrats!
Wim Hof (The Ice Man) designed an exercise which I absolutely love.
It consists of rapid breathing (deep full breath in and just letting it go out not exhaling all of the air) then repeat this for 30 times following a full exhale and holding your breath for as long as you can. After this you inhale and hold it for around 15 seconds.
Repeat this for 3 times.
But at the last round don't exhale just inhale fully and start doing push ups without breathing.
I promise, you will be making 50-70 push ups without breathing (depends on how explosive yours are)
Here is the video: The power of the breath by Wim Hof - double your pushups without breathing

After this exercise I do some stretching. It was really helpful for me. At the start of quarantine I could reach my knees when I bent over and now I can almost have a whole palm on the ground.

Love this, i have been doing something similar for a year now.

I use a clock with a second hand. When the second hand strikes the 12 position i do 18 pushups which takes around 15-20 seconds. Then rest for the remaining 40 seconds of the minute until the second hand strikes 12 again and then repeat the 18 pushups.

I repeat this a further 30 times for a total of 540 pushups in 30 mins. A couple of times a week

I started with 10 pushups and progressed. It was damn hard to start, really hard but persistence is key. When i started i could barely do 10 good ones

I'm 48 now and in the best shape i've ever been in

Really glad to hear, it is taking everything in me to keep going into day 5!. I hope it gets better. My arms are sore. I am 46 and 280lb so that is a lot of weight to push up. But I am committed to jump-starting my weight-loss and active lifestyle goal! Your story is inspiring.

Since the lock down stuff I've been focusing on working out more, for some reason I'm NOT getting stronger at pushups (stuck around the 15 rep mark) and each week I do them my shoulders are burning like crazy.

I have been doing alot of cardio lately as I need to lose a ton of weight, anyone had this problem before?

For the past couple months I've been consistent with my runs (3x a week) and still have some pain in my ankles/feet/hips (I do snowboard and skate) So I'm not exactly the nicest person to my body.... errr, only 28 years old. Definitely do not want to spend my elderly years in a wheelchair.

It's very strange though as it comes and goes, sometimes I'm A-OK and sometimes not.

I can’t count how many times I tryed, seems like I have some mobility issues or should just use better form and not push trough the pain just to get to 100...

It’s always either elbow or shoulder, I’ll start again by doing a new method to try and be injury free until I can do 100 properly:
6 sets of 6 per day 2 per meal, so basically before meal and 1:30h post meal.
This is very little 36 per day which is 1/3rd of the planned amount.

Progession : up 1 rep(on sets)every 3 days, about a month to get to the goal.

That's great!
Personally I started by training 3 times a week (pullups + pushups + situps + squats) and lately I moved to training every day so I'm doing 120 pushups a day just like that.
I recommend starting with 1 rest day so your muscle can recover and grow better.

Maybe 1 month of 120 pushups every two days and right afterwards 1 month of 100 pushups everyday.

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.
I am in, but 100 push ups everyday will be pointless if we don't progressively overload or do difficult push up variations.

How about 100 in week 1, 150 week 2, 200 week 3 and 250 week 4?
Regular Pushups, Diamond Pushups, Decline Pushups, Weighted Pushups,Pike Pushups and even handstand pushups if you are able to hit your goals.
