Taking the 100 Pushup Challenge

One Hundred PushupsAs a high school swimmer, I used to easily pump out the sets of 20-25 pushups. Needless to say, that was quite a while ago. I’ve always liked lifting weights and strength training, but since I started racewalking that has been my focus.

I read about the hundred pushups program and decided to join the challenge.  The program consists of an initial test, which I did today and completed 25. Over the next six weeks, I’ll be doing five sets of pushups, three times per week. There are a few testing points built into the program, where if you don’t complete a given level you should repeat the week’s training. This builds up to the final test, with a goal of completing 100 consecutive pushups. It seems like a well thought out program that almost anyone could follow and accomplish. I’ve asked some friends to join me in the challenge. I expect this will both make the challenge more fun, and create accountability which will help us all. Stay tuned for updates as the program progresses.
