Has anyone tried the hundred push up challenge? Were you successful?
I came across the hundred push up challenge. Its a program to get you doing 100 push ups in 7 weeks.
I've just did the first workout of week 1 and I'm looking forward to the challenge.
I have seen some youngsters do it. The Hundred pushups challenge i watched in AXN . It was a programme called Guinness records. Best of luck and give some extra food to your muscles
This is a requirement to pass basic training in the Army (or at least, it WAS a requirement when I went through basic training).
Everyone starts out in real bad shape for Army standards, and they gauge you on how much you improve since you started, but there are some required numbers that you must meet, such as your average mile time on the run or completion time of the obstacles. One of these requirements was to do 100 pushups in a row with no rest in between.
I thought that I would never be able to do it, but they have you doing so much running and strength exercises that it wasn't impossible to accomplish by the end of training. It really is a mind over matter thing, because your arms start to feel like they are on fire after about 35-40 pushups, and around 80 or so you are sure that they are going to fall off.
It took us more than 7 weeks, but I'm sure you could at least make some pretty good progress if you really focus on that program. You'll be satisfied even if you don't reach 100, because you will be able to see how much progress you made, and that is supposed to motivate you to keep trying.
When I went through basic training, we did not do the 100 push-up challenge. I went to Fort Benning in 2002. We did, however, have to complete as many push-ups in two minutes as we could. After some serious training, I was able to get over 70. I am not a particularly strong person (at the time, I was 6' tall and about 135 lbs), but some of my friends were able to get around 90 push-ups in two minutes. As long as you don't burn yourself out early, I think you should be able to pull it off. Good luck, and let us know how it goes!

Has anyone tried apple cider vinegar for health?Have been reading about health benefits. Have to be careful because it is acidic, but can eat on salad, etc. Has anyone tried this and gotten good results? I am especially interested in blood sugar reduction as my morning blood sugar tends to run...

Has anyone tried making hard boiled eggs this way?I don't want to waste the electricity to heat oven for one or two eggs, but don't want to ruin a batch of eggs if this doesn't work. Anyone know if this is better?

Has anyone tried to eat according to the Eat Right 4 Your Type book or diet?I started reading this book a few days ago and am amazed at how much sense it makes. I was just wondering if anyone had tried to eat that way and what results they had if they did?
