Ever Tried?

Has anyone ever tried the 100 push-up challenge?
Has anyone ever tried the 200 sit-up challenge?

I am wondering, because I am looking at the programs:

They seem to be good, but I am not someone who tried exercise programs in the past. Wondering if anyone has some experience with these programs.

Re: Ever Tried?

I used to do 300 push ups a night -- 3 sets of 100. I followed your link but didn't bother reading the whole thing.

I simply started out doing as many as I could manage, then 3 sets of whatever that number was -- think it was 10 or 12. I ket doing this amount until I felt like I wasn't getting much return, and then I would increase the number by 5. In very little time I was up to 3 sets of 100 in about 30 minutes.

After a while though, my wrists would start to hurt and I would stop for a while. Then I'd start up again and work my way back up to 100 per set for 3 sets.

After doing sets of 100, after a while I wouldn't even start to feel anything until I got to about 80 or 90 in my second set.

It's not really hard, you just slowly but steadily work your way up there.
