Alright everybody, time for a classic push-up (press-up?) challenge!

Starting next Monday, Nov. 24th until Friday Nov. 28th the challenge is to see how many push-ups you can do. Not all at once of course, maybe 5 here, or 10 there repeatedly throughout the day for 5 days. Full ones of course with proper form, but it will be on your honor.

This is a fun challenge, I've done it with my brothers (and over at VF). It does take a little discipline, the most I've done in a day was around 200. I'd do a set of 10 every hour, then as many as I could throughout the last few hours before bed. It really upped my strength in a short amount of time and is a lot of fun :) .

It will be legendary!
------------

Totals:

bodybag: 100
Crystal: 600
HCPinGviini: 50
I'm Your Man: 3610

Okay, that is all for this little comp! Thanks Bodybag, HCPinGviini, and I'm Your Man for participating :D :D :D

Does pushing yourself away from the table count as 1?

I'l try, but not so as to eliminate rest between workouts I will only participate during workouts, or extened days between them.

I'm definitely in, I'm not doing any training really these days except the 100 push-ups program, I'm now at week 5 (of 6), you can see some videos in my Training log. I'm not in great shape these days but I can surely do lots of push-ups through the day. I was doing many push-ups during a week or two last winter, I wrote in my training log, about 600, and then 800, in 3 days or more I think, I don't remember.

Some guy on veganfitness.net claims he used to be able to do 1000 push-ups a day. 500 consecutive in the morning and 500 consecutive in the the evening. I still think he's full of shit.

It's probably more like "We are both kidding ourselves." :lachmal:

Yay, glad to see so many joining in! Try to post your daily numbers and I will keep a running total in the first post, well, until Thursday night at which point I get ready to leave early Friday morning for field work (don't worry, I'll still do lots of push-ups!). I'll edit the grand totals when I return on Monday to see who the big winner is!

@Fallen_Horse: Yes, over Thanksgiving, I thought that would add to the fun (does it count as weighted push-ups if you do them after feasting?).

@bodybag: what is your username at VF? I don't recall seeing you?

Let the games begin! (Monday . . .) :D

If I had to choose one (former) veganfitness member who is clearly full of shit...

500 consecutive push-ups? That's not impossible. But he should videotape it. There's a guy on youtube who posted a video where he does 200 diamond push-ups and then 10 hand-stand push-ups.

There's the vegetarian ex-marine Alan Jones, who have many world records, like 17 000 consecutive sit-ups and other things like that, see the list on my blog.

Anyway, to get back to this push-up challenge, the timing is so perfect for me, because I'm finishing saturday the 100 push-ups program, which was 6 weeks. So monday I have a new program : doing an infinite number of push-ups during all week, so thank you Cristal for this wonderful idea ! Is there a prize or something for the winner ? :P lol.

I have a big advantage on the others : I don't work ! This will be the last week until I get more busy, so I can do push-ups all day if I want. I could do easy sets of 20 every 10 minutes for 15 hours per day.

Question: are all kinds of push-ups allowed, as long as they are the same level of difficulty or harder? Like diamond push-ups, one arm, hand-stand, etc...

Anyway, I know the challenge is not started yet, but here's some videos of me doing the 5th set yesterday, with about 1 minute rest between each (20,23,20,18,56)
And then set 6 (54). But looking at it, it seems I wasn't going down enough.

I'd say all kinds of push-ups are allowed, from diamond to wide-grip, but not handstand push-ups. You have to be in a ~horizontal plane, and they have to be full push-ups! No partials here.

Well, I sure hope you guys push-up as good as you talk :P ;) - feel free to post videos/pics as the week progresses!
