    100 Day Pull-up/Push Up Challenge!!! Join Me Starting Friday Dec 16th!!!


    Beginning Friday, December 16th, Pull-Up/Push Up Challenge participants are doing one Pull-up & one Push-up on day one and adding one each day until we get to 100 pull-ups on the 100th day! That’s a total of 5050 pull-ups!

    *Note Unless You Want To Go All The Way Through, I Suggest You Start Back At One At Day 51 Like Me... This Is A Suggestion From Previous Experience And Trail & Error In Regards Mainly To The Pull-ups

    100 Day Pull-Up/Push-up Challenge Details
    100 Day Pull-Up Challenge. Beginning Friday, December 16th, we start doing one pull-up & one push-up on day one and add one each day until we get to 100 pull-ups on the 100th day!
    *I will be doing this in two parts starting over at day 51. Last time I had an over use injury in my shoulder and had to stop at day 70 something*










    The Rules:

    Pull-ups:

    1. Use any grip, jumping or modified, dead hangs, kipping or butterfly pull-ups are acceptable.
    2. You can complete each day’s pull-ups all at once, or broken up and done at different times throughout the day.
    3. If for some reason you miss a day, you have to make up all the missed pull-ups the following day.
    4. If you don’t start the challenge with us today, you can “buy-in” at any time by doing ALL the missed day’s pull-ups on your first day.
    5. Any pull-ups you complete during your regular workout can count towards that day’s Challenge pull-ups, if you want them to.
    5. Have fun doing pull-ups and getting stronger doing it! (This is modeled after Crossfit Santa Cruz’s 100 day Burpee Challenge.)
    Post your progress in the comments. Integrity, hold yourself accountable. It’s time to establish you as a pull-up bad ass! Are you man enough???

    Push-ups:
    1. Basically the same as the pull-ups.
    2. On your knees is fine (girl push ups) if you need to.
    3. Resting on the ground or in the up position is ok.
    4. Hands off the deck or position change... narrow, wide, decline, whatever.
    5. Elbows just need to break the 90 degree plane is all.
    6. Keep proper form


    Here's a list of everyone who stated they're in on the challenge. If I missed anyone let me know. We'll see who's still around at the end

    Who knows, maybe I'll throw a few goodies out to people along the way

    I'm in. I don't have a pull up bar at home but my work takes me passed a play park on my way home in the morning

    My pull ups will be done with over arm grip, mainly because you can't climb a mountain with an underarm grip

    But an underarm grip can get you over a lot of sh*t, like on top of a roof (to escape the zombies of course..lol) But you know the rules, do as you will

    Added your name to the list.


    Remember this is pull up and push up!

    True, but I thought I would add them in for fun. You gonna start over at one at day 51 like me? I had great results last time, but ended up with an over use injury in my left shoulder. I figure 100 days broken up into two halves will keep people engaged longer cause people dropped real quick after 50 last time and I suspect will in fact yield better results because it will help prevent CNS burnout and allow better recovery. I am going to do a max try on Thursday and a few days after the end do a max try again and see how well I improve.

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

    I'm gonna be in it this time! I'll do the pullup one ... probably neutral or chin-up grip. If my shoulders are ok I'll give the pronated grip a whirl. We'll see.

    If you miss any days they can be made up, but it's best to miss days early on if you are missing day 46, 47, and 48 then making them up on day 49 blows

    I've been wanting to increase the number of pullups and lat focused exercises done period.....

    I'm totally in on this and going all the way to 100 for both.... Im going to regret saying that, but I'm sticking to it!

    Push ups should just be fun to try to complete simultaneous to that many pull ups... But other then that I could knock out 100 each day as it is...


    Does no one ever feel like this overusing the group? Most people see real progression from this challenge?

    I did this a year or so ago and got to about day 70 something. I had to stop due to an over use injury to my left shoulder. I was freaking rocking it at the 40s and 50s though. Just sucked to do them, but I was good. At the high 60s I could tell my shoulder wasn't right and then in the 70s of course I quit. This is why I suggest or at least I am going to start back over at 1 after day 50. That should allow for some better recovery. And I hope better results at the end. I was able to do about 25-27 straight solid pull ups as my max during this before (I started with my max being about 15).

    I agree on the push ups, I just felt like they would be fun to through in.

    I recently just came off doing 10x30 on situp, pushup twice a day = 600 situps 600 pushups....I ran it for 45 days, and my overall projection wasnt too great. For instance, on my chest days my inner chest was too warn to really get good R.O.M. and good sets. It did boost my abdominals and I really seen gains there, but it hurt my chest.

    Yeah 600 push ups a day may be a bit too much, particularly if you still plan in lifting lol. They way I have this set up is you can break everything up and spread it out all day long if you like. Should keep ya warmed up without taxing you too much for benching. The pull ups however, may take some special attention to in regards to what lifts you do for your back and when you do them.
