100 Push Up Program: Exercise Program Review

Most of you have seen advertisements on the sides of your webpage for workout programs or one simple tip to get fit. They show you pictures of guys who would be in body building competitions and say in 6 weeks you could look like that. That is probably one of the biggest lies I have heard in a long time, if it was that easy everyone would look like a bodybuilder. I found this program online for free that didn’t advertise online promising killer abs or biceps the size of bowling balls. I heard of this program through my friend so I decided to check it out.

The program is called 100 push ups so obviously it is push ups. It is a 6 week training program that tells you that after the 6 weeks you will be able to do 100 push ups. There is no membership, email, credit card or anything required. You just load the page and you have it right there in front of you. Of course there is a donation button on the side so that if you liked the program you can help whoever is running it. This website is great because they tell you why you should pick push ups and they show you how to do a proper push up so that you don’t end up hurting yourself. There is also a list of alternative push ups if you don’t want to or can’t do the proper form push up.

The program starts by having you do an initial test to see how many consecutive push ups you can do. Once you have done the test you are placed in a certain category and you follow the specific number of repetitions and sets listed under that column. There are 6 weeks in the program so it starts of with a relatively low number of push ups in week 1 and gradually increases as the weeks go by. There are also tests at the end of certain weeks that you will have to do call exhaustion tests. These are basically like the initial test you did where you do as many as you can and it places you in a category for the next week.

I did this program being able to do about 13 push ups in a row and by the end of the program I was able to do about 87 push ups. Now you may think that the program failed because I couldn’t do 100 like they promised but after 6 weeks I could do almost 7 times more push ups than I could initially and I have noticed some muscle definition on my arm where there wasn’t before. This is a great program to do because it is free, simple, you don’t need to buy any equipment, it works so long as you do and the results they promise are attainable.
