    Go for it Tor! Hitting 100 push ups is a very satisfying goal when you reach it.

    You might try something like greasing the groove on your push ups and pull-ups, though you would have to start with aided pull-ups.
    If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

    That rocks!

    When I started I could do 0 pull ups and like 6 or 8 push ups. Now I can do 40 push ups in one shot or a couple sets of 30ish and 2 pull ups some days, sometimes 1-3/4.

    How to work on pull ups? There are a couple of threads about it on here. I would do what I could mostly, 1/2, 2/3, 3/4, whatever every couple of days. Occasionally I would do the reverse pull up thing, start at the top and go down as slowly as possible or put one toe on a stool and help myself do about 5 at a time. I am still surprised at how much my push ups increased compared to how little my pull ups increased even though I am pulling up 48 less lbs. Kinda weird.

    When I do my max push ups I go for 2 minutes, but do rest by leaning back on my legs while keeping them straight. Different technique, but either way good work.

    Day 3 of week 5. working off of column 3. I did 200 push ups in 8 sets. The last set was a do maximum at least 50. Well 50 was all I could squeeze out, of course that was after doing 150. Boy number 50 was a beast, it took all I could do to get it out... Almost collapsed in the last inch or two.....
