As always, I like to be brutally honest.Â After watching this video from over at Get Fit Slowly, I’m convinced that I’ve been doing my pushups ‘wrong’.Â So, I retested myself, and I’m not ready to move to ‘level 3’.Â In fact, I’ve decided that I need to be doing ‘level 1’ training.Â Why?Â Because, I want to do 100, super-awesome, perfect push ups, not 100, kinda wobbly, sloppy, almost ups.
So, today, I did the level 1 workout for day 2, week 1.Â Here’s the chart –
As you can see, I’ll be doing far fewer push ups during each training session, but I feel that I’ll be much better served – in the long run – if I learn to do them correctly.
(I also need to hit the treadmill just a bit more.)

those were some pretty perfect pushups (I HEART the alliteration ;)).
I may need to go back and reshoot my video now.
Ah! Flashbacks to military fitness testing! 🙂
Well, hey, at least you now know the correct way to do push-ups, so you’re not really taking a step backwards.
(Love the speaker’s accent on the video.)
I think you are doing it wrong.
You are supposed to test yourself at the beginning. If you do less than 5 push ups you do the first column as your daily workout, 6-10 the second column and >10 the right column.
Then for each days workout you do all the levels for your column.
Nice to see others doing the One Hundred Pushups Challenge!
My progress is here. http://www.fivezerofive.com/main/index.php?itemid=1461
Iâ€™m still stuck on getting started with week 5 due to my hectic schedule, lack of sleep, and just plain being tired from running and biking.
