100 Pushup and 200 Situp Challenge

For those of you who have never heard of the 100 Pushup challenge, it is essentially a training guide to get your butt off the couch and do some pushups. There is also a 200 situp version which does the same. The goal of these is to reach 100 consecutive pushups and 200 consecutive situps all at once, for each individual activity.

I am taking a break from running to give my heel some time to heal, but I told myself that I would build my core. I figure pushups and situps are better than nothing.

I started Week 2 of each training guide. I am fit enough where I don't have a problem starting a bit ahead. Every other day I am going to do the 100 pushup and 200 situp challenge to gain strength. I don't really care if I actually am able to do 100 pushups or 200 situps, just that I am staying strong.


  1. do you want to kill your back? dont do situps. do some squats instead.

  2. What is wrong with situps? Why are they so bad for my back?

    I can't do squats because I am letting my heel heal and I don't want to put any stress on it.

    Thanks for your comment.

  3. Bodyweight training can be very intesne and very rewarding.
