How was your training like reaching your goal for 100 push ups.
what kind of reps/sets push ups did you do? can you give us a little insight on the different forms you used also?[/quote]
Sure. I could 55 straight before and had always wanted that 100. I did triangles, then regular, then wide every other day for two weeks, never to failure. I then did one week of triangles to failure. Then, I repeated the 2 weeks with tri, regular, and wide. (BTW: I did 20 of each usually, rest one minute between each set.) I then did wide to failure eod for a week. I continued this pattern.
Finally, about 2 months in, I rested for 4 days (and it felt wierd to rest, very unnatural!) I drank a Red Bull, which I hope wasn’t cheating, and a few minutes later, got the 100.
Funny story: I go home and I’m shouting to my wife “I got it! I got it!” She thought I was saying I got ‘hit’. “Omigod, are you okay? Where’s the car?” We had a good laugh.
I’m now going to do this in front of my high school kids and challenge the ‘jocks’ to match the old man!
