One Hundred Pushups

This is the first workout meme I've ever encountered. I heard about it from two different people yesterday and am circulating it amongst people I know.

The idea is to train yourself gradually to be able to do one hundred consecutive push ups. The plan takes 6 weeks but allows people to repeat weeks if the going gets tough.

I did my initial test last night and was able to do 60 consecutive push ups. I do push ups kinda regularly, so that was the number I expected. I started my first week today, and could do 50 on my last set. I'm planning on rushing through the first two weeks, but will pace myself and follow the plan a little closer in the latter weeks. I'll post my progress at the end of each week.
