IYM, have you checkout this website? There should be some variety here.

This is the first day of my new life.

lol just kidding. But I started this challenge. I woke up later than I wanted, so I tried to do more push-ups for the time I lost. I started at 10:30, and by 11, I made 220. My plan is a minimum of 100/hour, so this is good.

I want to do a minimum of 1000 per day, but that won't be enough, to reach the 10 000 goal I need to do more than 120/hour, 16 hours per day. Sleep from midnight to 7. Doing push-ups from 8am to 11 pm.
I mark a small vertical line for every 10 push-ups I make on a sheet of paper so then it's easy to count.

@bodybag: so how many of those from Sunday count for starting Monday? The 20 at midnight? Just clarifying! :D

@IYM: wow, I just got a nice blow to the ego. I was happy with my 50 for the day so far!

I'm doing Monday to Friday. But I guess bodybag does Sunday and ends thursday, right ? It doesn't mather, to start tomorrow or whatever, as long as it's 5 days consecutive, not only adding 2 week-ends together plus a fifth day : )

Cristal, don't hurt your ego because of me, I would prefer to be a source of motivation for you ; ) I'm sure you can do 100 per day. Just do 10 per hour. But hey, I started with many push-ups, but after about 25 sets now (sets of 10, 20, 30, I did one of 40) my muscles already have less strength, so it might be really hard to do as much as I wanted. But if I can do 5 000 for the week I'll be glad.

I only lift every other day so Tuesday and Friday are the only days this week I'll be doing push-ups; my muscles need time to recover. I think I'm going to stay out of this challenge because weightlifting is more important and I don't lift until the afternoons; I only do push-ups in the evening; I think 100 consecutive push-ups better suits the needs of a martial artist. Also, I got bored, it became to easy doing one-hundred in 2 sets of 10 over time last night. I want to start doing weight push-ups.

Maybe I'll start doing burpees, althought I couldn't do them on my knuckles.

Well bodybag, if you want to stay in the comp, that would be awesome but you don't have to! I'd definitely accept Sun - Thurs (we can be flexible here :D ). It won't interfere with your weight sessions (much . . .), I'll still be doing mine :D

:( No, I haven't had insomnia for years now and never for that long! I'm sorry, I was just trying to taunt you into competing, but if you are struggling with insomnia no worries man. Take care and I hope you get some sleep!

So who's in for this challenge ? Crystal, I thought you said it was a challenge for you and Phil, is he participating :)

I'm surely not gonna do 10 000 push-ups like I said, lol, because I discovered it's unrealistic, I got other things to do than push-ups all day long, and also strength starts to decrease after a few hundreds... But I'll try 5 000 :)

You're a bit crazy, honey. :)

I did 41 and I'm going to do 9 more so that'll be 50 for my first day. I'll try to do more tomorrow.

HCPinGviini: Yay! I'm so glad you joined in! :D :D :D

IYM: Curse your oily hide! That is an insane amount of push-ups for one day!

So my total for Monday was 230 and that was about all I could mananage and I'm SO SORE today! Oh well, 4 more days to go :)

Philliped doesn't have to post his totals if he does not want to, but he'd better tell me :o

Only did 680 today . My chest is not repaired from yesterday, lol. My goal today was 50 per hour (instead of 100 yesterday) but I did a bit more than that.

that thread was hard to find, no one updates :)
anyway I've done only about 500 today (but I'm gonna do a few more for the next 2 or 3 hours).
here's some videos of today's knuckle push-ups I made. Not perfect form but anyway.
