100 push-ups, 200 sit-ups: Initial Test

Mel and I are gettin’ in shape. We’re trying a 6 week program that promises to help us do 100 push-ups and 200 sit-ups by the end of 6 weeks. Tonight we did our initial evaluations by maxing ourselves out on each exercise. I was able to do 19 push-ups and 25 sit-ups (remember how bad I am at sit-ups???). Mel did 3 push-ups and 40 sit-ups. I’ll let you know each week how we’re improving. I’m most excited about the sit-ups, but mel is looking forward to the push-ups.

  • Oh, I'm looking forward to all the updates on this. Make sure to update every week!

  • I'm embarrassed I can only do 3 push-ups. And one of them wasn't very good form- since I pretty much used my butt to pull myself up. Sort of pathetic. The site claims ANYONE can make it to 100 in 6 weeks, so I guess I'll give it a shot. Tonight I'm supposed to do at least 10, but with breaks between every 2 or 3- I'm nervous, but hopeful.

  • Reuben! I am on week 5 of the 100 push-up challenge and I just started the 200 sit-up one. I can't wait to see how you guys do. It has changed my life forever.

  • Tiger, good to hear. you need to be all hard-bodied for your upcoming wedding and such, right? So are you gonna make it?
