    Are your arms weak and girly from spending all day hammering out your next epic map? Mine sure are.

    So here's what I'm going to do about it. I'm going to do a hundred push ups. Yup. And because nothing is more encouraging than having other internet nerds laugh at your failure, I'm going to use this thread to keep track of my progress.

    Here's the six week program: One Hundred Push-Ups. You should do it too and use this thread to track your progress. We can be the number one site for TF2 Maps and Ripped Pecs.

    So who else is with me? LETS GET RIPPED NERDS!

    (edit) I wasn't clear but doing 100 push ups isn't actually my GOAL. Sure, it'd be nice to do, but I'm actually more interested in making small life changes and incorporating them into my daily routine. I want to form habits that are healthy and productive. This program seems like a solid way to do that without hurting myself.

    I understand that other people have different goals, but I hope the other participants can come around to my way of thinking. This isn't about doing an absurd amount of push-ups. Rather, it is a collective effort to improve our bodies over time. Just doing as much as we can on a daily basis is more impressive than doing a lot of something once.

    (double edit) I DO NOT SUGGEST DOING AS MANY PUSH-UPS AS YOU CAN EVERY DAY. I am not a fitness instructor, but I suspect this is only a good way to hurt yourself quickly. My arms feel like jelly after every work-out and taking a day off feels crucial to the health of my muscles.

    --

    Okay, so step one. Take the Initial test. Stop reading this thread now, go to that page, read it, and then face the floor and pump out some pushups. Really, do it. You won't do it later, trust me.

    I think back in high school I could do about 30. I should rock this shit. Imma take my shirt off and cue up some Girltalk and drink a buncha water. Okay here I go.

    <HNNNURRRGH>

    18? What the shit. Tomorrow is going to be a better day.

    I used to do 20 every morning when I woke up, but then I strained some muscles in another activity and couldn't for a few days and never got back to it.

    I can barely make it through the twenty or so we do in warm-ups for gym.

    But damn can I dominate the equipment in the weight room.
