100 Push Ups and 200 Situps aka @100pushups

Yes, I have officially joined the club and have started the 100 Push Ups plan. I am a glutton for punishment and have also started the 200 Situps just one week later.

It was just over a year ago when my online running buddy, Steve Speirs aka @britishbulldog and blogger extraordinaire over at www.runbulldogrun.com started the 100 Push ups craze. That was right around the time I broke my collar bone so I was not able to participate, but I knew one day, once my collar bone was completely healed I would join that craze.

That time has come and just last week I started the 100 Push Ups. This week as I started the second week I also started the 200 Situps plan and will be doing them on alternating days.

Steve has also written an accompanying book called 7 Weeks to 100 Push-Ups available where ever good books are sold.

I know of a couple others out on Twitter that are currently doing it, if you are one of those, make yourself known in the comments with your Twitter ID so we can check up on each other.

Wish me luck!

  1. i have been doing the pushup challenge! i started on week 3, got to week 5 and then slacked off for ~1.5 weeks, so restarted on week 5 and am now in week 6. they are tough!! i like the additional ab workout - mine are always killer sore the next day. i think i am getting close, i got 90 in my last 'test'! (real ones even, not "girl" ones!)

    good luck in your pursuit of the hundred!!

  2. I've done it before and it is not easy. I alwasys seem to get off track about half way thru the program. I hope you have better results. Good Luck!

  3. I like this challenge. I think push-ups, sit-ups, and running is all you need to be fit. All these different contraptions are crazy. I know by doing 100 push-ups a day I now have well defined arms and chest, no matter how much I run!

  4. Love these challenges, but man are they intimidating! Keep us updated on your progress :-) --Alex

  5. Goodness me, you *are* a glutton for punishment! Well you should let us know how it goes... It's good to be challenged, after all ;-)

  6. I was doing good until this week (week 4 pushups) when I tried too hard to get the last set in and pulled something in my neck. I am taking a few days off to get it better then will continue.

    Thanks all - and join me if you haven't already :)
