Hundred Pushups Challenge: Day 0 - The initial test

By Andrew Pollack on 09/08/2008 at 09:32 PM EDT

I saw a couple of other people giving this a shot and I thought it might be a good, simple way to improve my strength so I've started their simple (free) program.

Take a look at the Hundred Pushups Challenge for more information. The initial test is just as simple as doing a series of good, honest pushups and counting them up. Compare this on a chart for your age, and you get the initial ranking.

For my age, I come out in "Rank 3" to start with -- so that's got me starting about a third of the way through the program. Keep in mind, that's doing the initial test with true push-ups in good form and quick succession. It doesn't help to cheat in a self test.

I'll try to remember to post progress on the blog -- maybe that will keep me doing the program.

Nice...welcome to the club! :-) If you want to see the results other people
are having too (and record your own), just use the #lotus100pushups hashtag on
Twitter.

Cheers!

Thanks to the fantastic work by John Curtis and his team, the node.js integration with Domino is going to be getting a rich security model. What we know is that a user's authorizations will be respected through the node.js application to the Domino server -- including reader names, ACLs, Roles, and so on. The way ......
