One Hundred Push-Ups

This isn’t so much a workout, but more of a program with a specific target: in 6 weeks, be able to complete 100 push-ups without stopping. Not only does it layout a great program to accomplish that goal, it provides resources on how to perform a perfect push-up as well as other similar challenges, like completing 200 sit-ups.

A push-up is a great exercise that works almost every muscle in your upper body. Doing 100 in a row is an amazing accomplishment (one I’ve only done once). So let’s give it a shot.

The Lifehacker Workout

I don’t think I’ve said it before here, but I hate gyms. I’m not going to get into why. Most of it has to do with the dimly lit, sweat saturated, awkward and quiet atmosphere. Also paying for access to a machine that lets me run in place.

I’ve been following this little gem since November. I went off during the holidays, but now I’m back on it. Put together by the folks at Lifehacker, its a simple workout that combines full body exercises with some cardio.

…it’s a 3-day a week program that only takes 30-40 minutes a day. Because we’re not doing the 1-hour a day, 6 days a week more demanding P90X regimen, we’re working out our whole body every time (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday), using good, basic movements that are easy to make more difficult as we progress.

All of the exercises are adjustable, if you’re just starting out or already active and fit. Best of all it can be done in your own home without buying any equipment or gym membership. Check out the website to see all the details about it.

Lifehacker also encourages you to use the web app Fleetly (which I do). You can see my full run down on it soon.
