100 Pushups... Sort Of

How about this for a change of pace. After chatting it up a bit at work today, we actually decided on a different plan. Me and three of my buddies from work are embarking on an 8 week journey (unless someone gets there earlier) to 100 pushups. What's on the line? $20 from every competitor, winner take all.

The rules? Well, essentially, it's the most single rep of pushups accomplished in week 8 x 3. So, we will do one single rep three days the final week to decide our champion. The total of the three days is the winner. That, or if someone gets to 100 before then in one rep. Every other person will have a 2 day period to match the 100 and then the winner will be decided by total number of pushups on that last attempt. Admittedly, it's a little complex. But, the competition should be a blast.

In regards to plans... I was going to do the 100 push up plan. That's actually the reasonable plan. But, for an unreasonable bet like this... I think I'm gonna have to up the ante. For the sake of competition, I'm going to do a private log of my pushups. But, I'll certainly keep you updated on how it's coming along. Day one is in the books. I'm sore already.

That's the way to do it. Competition!

You should post a fake push-up diary showing sets of 80,80,75 to psych out the competition.

Today I did 120, 115, and 110. I was really losing steam at the end. I'm concerned. lol.
