Week 3 is hard indeed. I've got to do that week also more than once.

Initial test 9. The test after 2 weeks I managed to do 22. For now, I don't know as the next test is after week 4.

Initial test 35. Didn't bother going any further. Not bad for a guy that's 6'5", 265 lbs, and over 45 years old, eh?

I am not such a big fan of such modes of exercise. Push ups hurt my lower back a bit, as do sit ups.

I prefer these days to use the elliptical machines. I like to dial up the reistance and that does pretty good for me. I also have a bowflex which gives me the back support I need for most upper body exercises. Working the abs is a challenge, I need to find a good incline bench.

my initial test was 25; my two week test was 30. Soon I'll be up to the 4 week test. Since I'm now doing 30, 22, 22, 20, 25+ I'm hoping my next test is over 40.

My girlfriend (a med student in the USAF) did her own "100 pushup" workout for her fitness test.
1 pushup, rest briefly
2 pushups, rest (briefly = about 5-10 seconds)
3...
4...
etc. Once you do 10, you come back down. It equals 100 pushups, done over about 5 minutes.

I did it with her once. I usually do 30 on my own after I run, and maybe 1-2 times/daily. It burned...

That she could do it (all 5'3" and 120#) was embaressing. But, might be an option for others?

For those that think pushups are too repetitive on the same muscle groups, you can make them inclines or declines, by either having your hands or feet on a stair (or 2). Makes the weight shift, so other aspects of the muscle groups get worked out.

For the week 3 test, I did 35. Now I'm struggling getting past day one of week 3. I think it is because I don't get enough sleep. It is still fun though.
