Default One hundred pushups

I think this belongs here. When I did the 30 Day Shred I discovered how weak my arms were and I could not do sit ups without anchoring my feet. I plan to do both sit ups and push ups for six weeks to gain much needed strength.
Anyone want to join in?

I'm game! I'll take the initial test tonight after I've put the boy to bed and check back in to tell you how I started out!

I definitely need to work on my push-ups, I've been doing the modded ones for too long now! I'm in. I'll probably do this later in the evening and will post my initial test results.

I know I am starting at beginner and I may use regular to start & modified to finish which is what I used to do in 30 Day Shred! I figure I will be doing some face plants.

Wow, keep it up. We'll try our best to follow you. I know I won't be doing them perfectly at first but will get stronger after six weeks.

I'm confused. Did you know about this before today? It's supposed to be done three days of the week.
