Everywhere I go bloggers are talking about the "100 Push Up Challenge". I keep ignoring it because with the extra weight I am carrying in the mid-section I highly doubt I can even do one. Since I keep seeing so much about it I figured I would at least see what its about - and figured if you werent already doing it ... you might be curious too :)
The point of this challenge is pretty much what it sounds like - with 6 weeks of training you can get to 100 push-ups ... regardless of how many you can do right now! You start off with an initial test that puts you into a category. This category will give you your training schedule for weeks 1 & 2, then you take a test again to figure out how to continue with the training for weeks 3 & 4. At the end of week 4 you take the test (called an "exhaustion test") again to see where you stand for weeks 5 & 6.

Here is just a sampling of bloggers I found doing the challenge:
