A few days ago, I decided to join several of my fellow bloggers and attempt to do 100 Push Ups.Â During my initial test, I was able to do 13 good, ‘regulation’ push ups.Â Today, I officially started the program.
Here’s a chart detailing my Week 1 routine (chart comes directly from the HundredPushUps site.)
The first two sets of 10 were pretty easy, the set of 8 was more difficult, the set of 6 was excruciating, and the final set of 7 (actually 8 for me) nearly killed me.Â But, I did a total of 42 push ups!!!
I’m really excited about being able to do 100 push ups – but I’m much more excited about feeling stronger.

I made it through the first week… the 3rd day was much harder than the 1st and 2nd. At least for me.
I feel exactly as your last sentence states.
it’ll be cool to know I can do 100 (Im thinking positive here 🙂 I WILL DO IT!) but more will feel GOOD to have increased my strength.
I started on Friday too! I did… er… 10, 10, 8, 6, 11, for a total of 45. I probably could have done more on the last set, and probably should have, but I didn’t really want to. At least I didn’t wake up sore. I’m looking forward to doing day 2 tomorrow morning!
I just finished Day 2. Much harder than Day 1, especially as today, while I was walking in heels, I tripped down a set of stairs and was forced to catch my entire body weight on my arms on the banisters. I KNOW I’m going to be sore tomorrow not only from that, but from the pushups too. But I will keep on!
Way to go! I’ve just repeated week 01 day 01 and the improvements do happen!
