    I suppose I should get in on this, having broke some stuff recently in a longboard bail and trying to not fall too far out of shape while healing. I use a beckford bar.

    I stopped doing this for some dumb reason and now I’m pissed. I was seeing a difference and I got lazy.

    I tried this for a week while I was simultaneously loading up to go to the racetrack— my wife is amazed at how bulked up I got from Pushing car and lifting tires. :)

    So is the consensus every day or every other? I just started this and completed my first 100 yesterday (OK, started with 60 knee pushups until I could determine how hard it is.) Standard workout advice is workout / recovery, but is that old adive passe? I know from being a competitive cyclist that I made the most gains with consecutive days of hard effort.
    @plastique999 ask your doctor about Clomid (clomiphen citrate.) It doesn't work for everyone, but it brought my testosterone from 270 to almost 1000 and it's your own body that's producing the testosterone. There's not the same anabolic effect, but it will set the clock back significantly.

    I am going to jump into this. I'll say, right now.

    Just did 50 in a set of 25, 15, 10

    I'll wait a bit, then do another 25, 15, 10

    This should be fun

    FWIW, and it is of NO importance to me, but most of the recent posts here are not following '100pushups.com' recommendations.
    I'm on day 27 and this week for me is a daily total of 195 pushups. 3 sets of 13 with 5 minutes in between, 5 times a day. Final goal is 100 pushups in 1 go. Saturday is 'show what you can do' 1 time only; otherwise a rest day.

    Funny - since having to transition to home workouts, I've made pushups one of the essential elements. I've started to coordinate with a friend throughout the week to play "Deck of Pain" via FaceTime.

    Simple rules:
    • card value = # pushups
    • facecards = 10
    • Ace =11
    Shuffle deck, get nervous, and started pulling cards (alternating cards, obviously). You're done when you get through the deck. We finished this AM in 12.5 minutes - I ended up with 215 pushups. I find it to be the most effective way to structure pushups. 2-3X/week.

    Lots of core and bodyweight, it's a whole new world. I finish each workout with 30 min on a road bike I bought at the beginning of quarantine. I set it up on a smart trainer and run Zwift as a simulator. So far, not missing the gym, where I spent about an hour and half daily!

    have you tried Zwift? I like how it feels more like a competition / race each time you get on and go against other bikers.

    I did. This was back when I had my tri bike and was training for the Ironman. Those days are over and the bike is sold. Peloton is good enough.

    I read Jamie Foxx's workout routine for the Mike Tyson movie he's doing and it reminded me of this thread. He's doing 100 pushups, too, but every other day. Also doing dips (60), pull ups (60), etc. He takes a day off in between. I've tried pull ups everyday...can't do it well so I don't it every other day.
