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!

Here are some sensible rules for web site advertisingAn increasing number of websites are now detecting when users have ad-blocking enabled, and refuse to show content unless you "whitelist" their site (disable your ad-blocking for them). I think that is a fair decision on their part, it's how they pay for the site. However, if you want me (and many others) to white list your site, there are some rules you should follow. If you violate these rules, I won't whitelist your site, I'll just find content elsewhere. 1. The total space taken up by advertisements ......
