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!

IBM has made a deal under which the Notes & Domino software and intellectual property is now being developed and maintained by HCL America. HCL America is part of the very large "HCL Technologies" company that has grown from its roots in India to become an 8 Billion Dollar company with a global presence in the IT Industry. You could be excused for initially believing, as many people do when they hear this, that "they've outsourced the code to India where they'll milk it ......

If your company has ditched Notes and Domino, I feel sorry for you. For companies that do use Notes/Domino this is a game changer and Apple should be paying attention. Here's why: There are hundreds of little Notes client applications you'd never spend the time and money to build and deploy for your internal user base on IOS that we use Notes for all the time (those of us still using it). Now, those are suddenly ALL available on the iPad. ......
