    I flagrantly stole this idea from this thread on the vegan bodybuilding forums.

    Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness • View topic - VBBF Challenge: One Million 1,000,000 Push Ups

    I thought it was a cool idea, and it'd be a good way for everyone to keep track of how many pushups they're actually doing and help some of us get into better and better shape since we can compare how many we're doing to each other on here (everyone loves mock competition) I'm going to copypaste the rules from the other site, changing VBBF to SS.org, of course:


    So yeah, we'll start from today 8/4/2012 and see how long it takes us, good luck and good exercising everyone!

    (I'll edit my post in a few minutes after I do some more, I did a few sets earlier today but I don't remember how many so I'm not going to count them :flex:)

    EDIT: As for what type, let us know if they're wide (hands farther than shoulder width apart), narrow(less than shoulder width apart), neutral (shoulder width apart), diamond (making a diamond with your hands under you), elevated (either legs up or doing them on the back of a couch or something) or not, and if they're full pushups or done on your knees. EDIT4: or if you do explosive (push up where you come up fast and your hands leave the floor, you can clap or whatever, just let us know!) Thanks Necris for pointing out I missed that one. We'll count ones on knees and ones on the back of couches or against sinks and the like as 1/2, all others as 1 (even if your knees are elevated).

    EDIT2: And be sure to put your total, and then the total for the entire site as well, assuming you want to keep track of your personal total (you should!).

    EDIT3:
    2x20 wide
    1x15 neutral
    1x10 neutral
    Personal Total: 65
    Site total: 65

    50 Elevated (Mostly Wide)
    25 Neutral
    20 Wide (extra wide :lol:)
    10 Diamond
    25 Explosive

    Total: 130
    Site total: 195

    I tend to round down every 5, so 24 = 20 or 27 = 25 for me just to make things more challenging. :)

    Guess I could have done the site total, and not my own :lol:

    Add 10 more neutral. Did them with the 3 year old (count hers if you want, they're fairly impressive.).
