wow...those records are impressive.
I am not even gonna say how many I can do lol. But, I have only just started tryin to improve and this method thing sounds like a good way of improving so count me in.
At 5 my kids were playing in the sandpit with their friends like normal kids.
I'm in, I can do 50 in 1 set, once did 100.
My max is or was about 70-80.
I guess I have nothing better to do.
Count me in, right now just doing 10-9-8 chair program then adding weight, be nice to have a real goal.
To have no weakness and to feel no pain, is a feat I will someday conquer.
LOL ... hey khafra you're the only one that caught that!
I just don't see the point .... so what if you can't do more than 100.
I always say its not the "quantity" its the "quality" ... but what
do I know ...
Well....yes the quality of course but quantity also counts!
Let's put it this way, it was there in my sig b'fore -
I don't fear a person who has practised a 100 kicks
I don't even fear a person who has practised one kick a 100 times
But I sure as hell do fear a person who's practised a 100 kicks a 100 times!!!
i can't wait 13 days!!!
bleh...you're going to make me cry!
Ok. Count me in.
Ohh go on then, count me in, I've never been very good at push up's.
I'm wondering if its the same "method" as Robert C. Shouse's "Working towards 100+ Push Ups" (doing partials while alternating with different types of push-ups. )
... because I tried this with students in my class and at least in performing this type of routine, students were learning correct form by restricting the range of motion (partials) in some reps before moving on to finding it easy to do a (complete) push ups.
When I referred to "quality not quantity" I find when when one pushes themselves to exceed a certain number of push ups (due to exertion) they sacrifice correct form and lower back problems occur....
I want in!
Oh, 1 thing: I have a ton of tree planting to do at heartwood, a local willow plantation, this november. Will that be a problem? could I get somebody else to post for me, or should I wait until net time
I wonder if the method includes lots of sets but not going anywhere near failure, as in this thingie?
Blatant multiple posting instead of editing combined by YODA
"I'm wondering if its the same "method" as Robert C. Shouse's "Working towards 100+ Push Ups" (doing partials while alternating with different types of push-ups. )"
There will be weekly tips that will include things like back pain and other problems and plateaus.
I do ask you make a bit of a commitment to it (2 or 3 months 20-30 minutes a week).
Weekly updates of your max.
And dont post The Method until the challenge is over.
The site will be secured so once it starts no late entries.
If your not interested...dont bother...some are.
thats one thing I noticed today was when I hit thirty my lower back gave out and hurt everytime I tried to do a push up, any workouts for it???
Dorsal raises will help, I had the same problem.
I'm in! I have no idea how many I can do right now, but I know I could use some improvement.
word up I am in too. I usually do like 100 press ups... but there is a catch.. I do press ups in sets of 20 with like a minute break between each he he.. Do u have to do the pressups straight with no breaks in a row?
I would like to try this too, It would be great to get to 100 Push ups per set, currently I do sets of 25 of different types Ive never tried to see how many I can do but I will try tommorrow morning.
Can you let me know the details please.
