    Anyone doing this?
    I have been doing this for about 3 months and like the results. I take an odd day or two off a few times as needed. I usually do 4 sets of 25=100 a day but sometimes will do a 40, 30 and 30 for the 100 total. I like how quick the workout is just doing this. But I do use dumbbells' also every other day also.

    But well done you!

    I do a couple sets of five push ups each day. The difference is I hold for ten seconds at the top of the pushup and then hold for ten seconds at the bottom of the pushup, nose to the floor. It is supposed to build mass instead of burning calories, so I'm told. I have def noticed an increase in my bicep size and overall arm strength over the past couple months.

    I got it from some guy doing the "golden arms workout" without using any weights on youtube. I went from doing one pull up and maybe two chin ups to six pull ups and seven or eight chin ups. I've never been able to do more than one pull up at a time all my life previously. Definitely helps with the ranch chores having additional core strength

    I started doing 50/day about 2 years ago. No big deal. I also walk my dogs one at a time (3 dogs) to get some exercise.

    Amazing what spending 1-2 minutes a day doing pushups does for my overall health and 'bedroom physique" lol.

    Pushups at age 100 (your profile) is impressive.

    Anyways... I don't do 100 pushups a day. I'll do 30-50 a day (one set) 3 or 4x a week. I also keep some 12.5 kg (27.5 lbs) and 20 kg (44 lbs) dumbbells for my arms, delts, traps, etc. In the absence of a gym habit it is basically just routine physical maintenance.

    Edit: dumbbells has two b's

    Yep I try and do 4-5 sets of 20. Not everyday but maybe 2-3 a week...

    Sometimes I do 45 jumping jacks, 20 push ups, 25 something ab related...repeat 4-5 times...

    Still out of shape but I feel better after I do it :D

    Thinking about it, also sit ups.

    What I miss from when I did go to the gym is the rowing machine, but they've never seemed to be able to get the damn things to stay in one place.

    Best feeling from a workout ever after using one of those. I'd sweat through everything and that was just my warmup.

    If I were to sit comfortably in an arm chair say six to ten feet from you, and keep track of your pushups, do you think I would derive a splendid health benefit equal to what you are receiving from your efforts?

    I do 50 a day, have forever. During the six-week black belt cycle at our tae kwon do studio we're required to do 125/day for the six weeks. Even though I may or may not test again (I'm 60 and a fourth dan) I like to stay ready.

    I don't do 100 a day every day. I do 3 sets of 40 at least twice a week. Also 3 sets of 20 dips, and three sets of 15 pull ups, one wide grip, one close grip pronated, one close grip supinated. Also a series of back stretches/ core strentheners, and one I made up, which is just lying on the floor and standing up as quickly as possible a number of times. I spread the high- effort exercises out across the week so I don't work too hard any one day. At 65, I'm not interested in anything more stressful than body weight exercises, but wish I could find something more effective for legs than just knee bends.

    Perhaps, if you were to carefully point out the flaws in his technique, then yes. Also, I believe the technical term for the fellow who does that is “foreman”.

    Might need to be lifting something with your hands and arms, like chips in one hand and a beer in the other.

    I do that once a week as part of a AMRAP high-intensity workout; along with 50 pullups and 150 air squats.*

    *Actually, I did that a couple times but had to back off the volume because it was causing havoc with my shoulders; now I'm building back towards it.

    Not so big on pushups, but I go to the gym a few times a week. I bench press three forty-five, three fifty...

    ...four o’clock, whatever time I get there. :D

    I do three sets to failure with 90 seconds in between each set, then some burpees, walk a couple of miles a day, and play soccer on Sundays. I gained some weight during the first part of quarantine last year. Had a free subscription to the Nike app and started one of the programs with a trainer named Kirsty Godso. It was all cardio and body weight HIT workouts. She whipped my butt into shape. I have been slacking lately, but plan on restarting the program.
