Presently I can't train for a 100 miler... why not train for 100 consecutive pushups?

"If you're serious about increasing your strength, follow this six week training program and you'll soon be on your way to completing 100 consecutive push ups!"

I was farting around on Daily Mile and I noticed this group called Hundred Pushups.  In order be a part of this group you have to be:  "following the plan at, training to do 100 consecutive pushups!"

It's a 6 week training plan.  Only 6 weeks? The site claims that it can be done.  Hmmmmm, am I up for this challenge?

Can you do 100 consecutive push ups? How did you get there?

Gotta think about it.

i can do 100 consecutive pushups. in fact i used to be able to do about 130 probably not any more.

just do as many as you can to start off with and then do that a few times a day. then start to tweek out a few more each time. thats how i got there. just like running, some times your arms feel dead and sometimes they feel great. on the good days you have to just go for it!

That's pretty cool Ian!

I just purchased the 'onehundred pushups' iPhone app. I like that there is a training program. It keeps me accountable ;-)
