Last week, Jon Stewart posted a fabulous story about how the staff at Heartland Community Health Center had challenged each other to do 100 pushups. Of course, there's an app -- and a site -- for that -- onehundredpushups. The site provides a great training program, which is supposed to lead to anyone being able to do 100 pushups in six weeks. No kidding. From the site:
Think there's no way you could do this? I think you can! All you need is a good plan, plenty of discipline and about 30 minutes a week to achive this goal!
They count on most people being able to do less than 10 pushups. btw, good news: knee pushups count. Here's the info about what makes a good-form pushup, and describes the acceptable variations. You can even log your progress on the Pushups Logger.
So, we created this group page -- 100 Pushups -- so that everyone who wants to brag about their progress -- or moan about the lack of it -- can do so.
But, remember (Jon Stewart), this isn't a competition. :-)
