Could you do a hundred press ups in six weeks time?

18 July 2010

It has always been acknowledged that if you set yourself a target or goal, it will always help to motivate you to stick with your training.  When a regular Extrafit training client found an online program that claimed to be able to train anyone to do a set of 100 press ups in six weeks, lead trainer Tim Quickenden didn't think it was possible but rather that dismissing it, decided to give it a go, working with a client to motivate each other to stick with it.  On inspection, the six week program is tough but very well thought out.  Being built for and training more for cardiovascular endurance rather strength, Tim was sceptical that it would work for him.  Four weeks into the six week program and the results have been very good.  Improvements of nearly 50% have been made in performance and although a set of 100 straight out in a couple of week's time is still ambitious, Tim is keen to see it through and prove how beneficial a goal and a good program can be.  If you are reasonably fit and accustomed to exercising regularly, why not give it a go..........
