    Anyone done it? Maybe you can already do 100 push-ups. I just finished week 1 and did 45 today (4 sets with 60 second breaks). Not bad for an old broad :)

    one hundred push ups

    I just tried and can do 30 quickly/nobreaks before I get too worn to do any more.

    I just got a cortisone shot in my left shoulder this morning so I'll let you know if I can even do one in about a week before asking them to just amputate the arm.

    Hey, just joking!!!

    Does pushing up from the dinner table count?

    Every morning at 0530 and evening at 1730. Got tired of being round 'round the middle. I also do them ball of one foot, first two knuckles on the hands.

    Hurts like bloody murder.

    I'm gonna do this... not sure why, or what it's gonna get me, but I'm currently a lost soul, looking for some plan- any plan.... so here it is. Not gonna do my test tonight, though... will do it tomorrow, check in, and check back in 6 weeks.

    I used to knock out 90+ push-up's and 90+ sit-up's (both in 2 minute timed events), then do a two-mile run in <13 minutes for the Army PT test... I don't have cause to do that much, that fast anymore but I could work back up to it in about 2-3 weeks of every other day training with a 2-6 mile run on the off days... However, my brain (that thinks it's still 28) is finally starting to "catch up" to my 46 year old body, so I'd keep the Advil corporation flush with demand. ;)

    100 in 7 weeks is BS. Most soldiers in their prime can't do anywhere close to 100. Of course, they only count good push-ups when tested. I'm sure a lot can do 100 sloppy push-ups.

    That's funny, back in the late 80's and early 90's Army males in the 17-22yr. catagory had to do 89 push-ups and 88 sit-ups in 2 minutes, and run 2 miles in under 12 minutes to max the test... Although I could run over the horizon and back in combat boots with a full ruck, I could never quite max the run, but the other two events... no problem. Today's couch potato/video game playing bred stock, turned soldiers must be running to a lower standard these days.

    Annnnnnd since I was a Drill Sgt. for 3yrs, I could do push up alllllll day long. ;)
