Strength Training With Pushups
Do the 100 Pushup challenge and get closer to hit 100 consecutive pushups. I think being able to do 100 consecutive pushups is a worthwhile goal. Especially for myself since only a year and a half ago, even one pushup was too much for me to handle at one shot.
Pushups are the gold standard of testing strength.
We all know the images of just about every military force in the world using pushups as a basic strength conditioner.
Perhaps because they are just so simple, needing only a floor and yourself, they are overlooked. In any case, you might be wanting to add pushups to your exercise regimen.
Why Complete 100 Push Ups a Day
You do not need a gym. All you need is yourself and a floor. Whether you have a tile, hardwood or carpet, they are all perfect for push ups.
What is better than bodyweight training? And what is simpler and more effective than the push up?
Herschel Walker, built one of the most spectacular physiques of all time with push ups.
When you build up to 100 push ups a day, you will see for yourself the changes in your upper body.
Push ups will target your chest, shoulders, arms, triceps and believe it or not, even your abs. It is a challenge to remain in a plank position when you do more than 15 or 20 push ups.
Even better, once you start your day off with 100 push ups, you will be more likely to eat clean the rest of the day. Who wants to ruin all that hard work with a cinnamon donut?
No, you start the day getting stronger and continue to get leaner with real quality food. This is how to get leaner and stronger every day. And this is how it is possible to lose 75 pounds in 6 months. Or 20 pounds or more in 3 months. One day at a time.
Push Up Challenge Training Program
Maybe you also can only do one or a few and want to build up to 10 or 20 or 50 or 100. How do you do start a training plan to build up your pushup strength? My suggestion is to increase gradually. Start with one good form pushup. If you can do more than one, great, do it and rest the next day and then try again.
Even if you can only do one push up a day for 30 days, do it. It will take time till your body gets strong enough to add another push up.
But once it does, you will be able to add a push up every day to your max.
At this point, add another pushup or pushups whenever possible. If it takes you a month to get up to 10 pushups, so be it. Once you hit 25 pushups, you will be closer to the holy grail of 100.
My max so far over the last 2 years has been 56. I am trying to reach 100 push ups a day by doing sets of pushups within a restricted time frame, hoping to get stronger as I decrease the time. For example, I started by doing 100 pushups within 15 minutes several weeks ago.
Today, I did 100 pushups in 11 minutes and 30 seconds. Friday I will shoot to bring the time frame down a drop more. I hope this gives you some ideas on how to do the 100 push up challenge and increase your pushups and shoot for 100 pushups!
