Here is this thing that I have started doing

Basically, it's a fairly simple and easy plan designed to get you in good enough shape to do 100 consecutive pushups. I'd never gotten around to doing this because I kept forgetting to train for periods of time, but this way I don't even have to think about it, I just have to do what the internet tells me.

Anyway, I figured since a lot of you spend too much time on the internets anyway, this might be something you could do that's actually worthwhile.

So here's what you do in this topic:
1) Say you're gonna do the thing
2) Do the thing

Optional: Provide some updates on how the thing is going.

Now, let's all stop being such wusses and actually do a thing.

I tried doing it but I couldn't stand doing the earlier weeks. Doing 9-10 push ups 3 times a day is a hassle and it doesn't help me out in the least bit.
Pushups seem like a waste once you hit 50. It's too tedious at that point. It'd be better to go work out in a gym.

I usually do 2 bursts of 25 in the morning, with 2 bursts of 50 sit ups also, then I repeat in the evening.

I just finished reading the entire work out plan and it sounds good to me, I can already do 30 in a row so I get to start in the hardest column. I guess I could a update at the first of every week on my progress, its intimidating when you read through it and see all the push ups you haveto do but I am up to the challenge.

Nice. I had to be able to do 44 push-ups in under 2 minutes when I did army officer selection stuff last year. That's not too hard though, so I'd be more than willing to give this a go and let you know how I get on.

Nice idea to get people motivated to work out a little :)

I can already do 100 pushups. It's hard, but I can do it. It's not hard to get in shape enough to do it.

Just do push-ups until you collapse every day.

I can't even do 1 pull up. Push ups are just as hard.

Are we talking to-the-floor pushups or elbow length ones?

I would say that I would. But I know that I won't.
Maybe if I wasn't so forgetful I would.

They are only bad for you when you don't know how to do them.

RacistBassist's so simple it has to work guide:

One time a day, do as many push-ups as you can do and then stop.

Keep doing this until you do 100.

Voila, my Nobel please

Okay, I should have moved more and ate a more healthy way during the summer. Last year I could do around 45.

Now I just tried and collapsed after about 5.

How deep are the push ups?
Do i have to go all the way to the ground, or half way? I can already do 100 half way.

I can already do 22 pushups. Do you have to be able to do 100 pushups to join the U.S. Army? If so, I'm in.

I've been doing 150 pushups per day until last week when my family went on a vacation to Alaska so I may be a bit rusty due to this.

Ok, I've felt bad for my body FOR FAR TOO LONG. I am doing it.

So, I did the test and ended up in level 4, with 34 push ups. Wednesday I'll start the program. Nice find, Elfer!

It's also important to do this slow, 3 seconds down, then take 2 seconds to push up, those are the real push ups, slow is the key to get the best effect, try

Also, nice website, i might try this someday, im already doing these exercises everyday in the evening 8 sets of 20 slow push ups

Well, if you can already do 100 half-way, why not go for full ones now?

Personally, I'm being ambitious and doing nose-to-ground pushups with pushup bars that add a few extra inches of range to the exercise.
