    You 'nearly' missed the deadline there! ;)

    No more entries now - the challenge begins tomorrow for the 'crazy fools' who have signed up to this idiocy.

    Try this method. Do your absolute best without rests. Then divide it by three and do this number of pushups for in one set of three sets with one minute rest between sets. (If your best was thirty, you will do 10 pushups per set of three sets with minute rest between sets). The gradually decrease the rest period between sets. Your 1 set best should increase within two months.

    What I suggest is in the meantime you prepare for the next challenge (assuming there is a next).

    I think there are some people who may have found it too tough already.

    That's why I asked to be included in the next challenge.

    Good luck.

    btw, aml01_ph methods seems quite good. Not sure about the 1 min break though :)

    The one minute rest are for those who do not have the much muscular endurance needed for the pushups (those who can't do at least 50).
    The rest period is based on the fact that enough strength usually returns after 1 minute of rest between sets. If you don't find it challenging, you are welcome to decrease the rest period between sets or add reps to each set.
    Thanks for the compliment.

    No idea - Jeff Burger hasn't posted since December 8th despite having visited the forum on 25th.

    Maybe he's lost interest.
