This is part of my 40 Before 40 Challenge.
The best thing about press-ups is that you can do them anywhere, which means there are no excuses for not sticking to your plan. It’s also a basic exercise that works a wide variety of muscle groups in the upper body, back and core.
One hundred is a classic target for press-ups, but it will be a big challenge for me – I haven’t trained for this or pushed myself to the limit before, but I think I did about 40 (in a minute) during my 2012 Tough Mudder training. There are lots of training plans, but this looks like the one for me: One Hundred Pushups.
