Starting Over with The 100 Pushup Challenge


PushupToday I re-started the 100 Pushup Challenge using the iTouch App, 100 Pushups. This app is a simple little app that basically takes its user through a series of workouts over a 6-week period to reach the goal of doing 100 consecutive good form pushups. Today I did my initial test and competed a total of 28 good form pushups.

I originally started using the app a few weeks ago but found that I was not committed to doing a full complete pushup. Instead, because I was not being true to myself I was working through the program doing partial pushups. In other words I was only going half-way down instead of creating a 90 degree angle at the elbows and dropping my chest down as far as I could. I used this video for inspiration on how to do one properly:

So, with the strictest of form in mind, I have restarted the program and did the initial test and founds that I was able to just squeeze out 28 good form pushups. Not too bad considering even before I started the program a few weeks ago with bad form pushups I could only squeeze out 12.

My goal now is to do 100 good form pushups.

Stay with me as I continue on – I plan to record some video of my progress as I go along. I also am going to restart the 200 situp challenge and will the associated iTouch app and will write about that here too! Stay with me.

    I re-started this two days ago as well. I did pretty well for about a month, then lost focus… Yesterday was Day #1 again. I feel your pain.

    I remember the exact details of my first workout. It was a simple one. It had a run, some chin ups and some pushups as well… And it killed me :) I was fat and unfit. I hated it.
    But I persevered. My personal record of push ups in a row with no breaks is 102. What can I say? I love bodyweight training!
