HundredPushups.com: 20 Girl-Style Push-Ups -- It's A Start!

Posted Oct 18 2008 2:34pm

I almost forgot to mention: Right after I got home from the race, I did 20 girl-style push-ups to verify that I really can do them, in preparation for the hundredpushups.com strength-training plan. (Before I stated that I probably could do them; now, I had to test the theory to prove it was really true! ;-) )

The 20 pushups were part of the initial test portion, to gauge at what point in the plan I'll be starting. Depending on how many you can do, you'll do different push-up interval plans.

Now I have it on good authority from Cymrusteve that it's perfectly OK to do the girl-style pushups, so that's what I'll be doing. I could barely eek out 3 regular-style pushups, so that's certainly welcome news! ;-)

So, based on the initial test, it looks like I'm ranked a Level 3 (out of 7 levels), & accordingly, will be following the Level 3 plan, which is as follows:

Week 1:
Day 1: 2, 5, 8 (rest 60 seconds between each level, longer if required)
Day 2: 2, 6, 10 (rest 90 seconds between each level, longer if required)
Day 3: 4, 8, 10 (rest 120 seconds between each level, longer if required)

Week 2:
Day 1: 3, 6, 9 (rest 60 seconds between each level, longer if required)
Day 2: 3, 7, 11 (rest 90 seconds between each level, longer if required)
Day 3: 4, 8, 12 (rest 120 seconds between each level, longer if required)

Week 3:
Day 1: 12, 15, 17 (rest 60 seconds between each level, longer if required)
Day 2: 14, 17, 19 (rest 90 seconds between each level, longer if required)
Day 3: 15, 19, 22 (rest 120 seconds between each level, longer if required)

Week 4:
Day 1: 13, 16, 20 (rest 60 seconds between each level, longer if required)
Day 2: 14, 17, 21 (rest 90 seconds between each level, longer if required)
Day 3: 15, 19, 22 (rest 120 seconds between each level, longer if required)

Week 5:
Day 1: 22, 25, 30 (rest 60 seconds between each level, longer if required)
Day 2: 14, 16, 18 (rest 45 seconds between each level, longer if required)
Day 3: 12, 14, 16 (rest 30 seconds between each level, longer if required)

Week 6:
Day 1: 32, 36, 42 (rest 60 seconds between each level, longer if required)
Day 2: 20, 22, 25 (rest 45 seconds between each level, longer if required)
Day 3: 17, 20, 23 (rest 30 seconds between each level, longer if required)
