Bumping rather than editing in the hopes that maybe someone or two will see it and feel motivated/guilty and join me here.

Well let's see, I do 50 pushups per day, the thread was started on Dec 2, 2010 so we'll just call it 365 days of pushups x 50 = 18,250 pushups + 3190 = 21,440

WE MADE IT!

Otherwise just add 50 if you only want to count today. 3,240.

14 days since I last posted in here??? No one to blame but myself. For shame, Samik.

Someone already tried this ;)

Plus, we're already on the EDIT: third (three, sir!) pass through as it is (see here and here).

So how many pushups can most of you do in one go? 20, 30, 50? More?

Last week: 10. This week: 20. By extrapolation, I'm either going to be doing 30 or 40 next week. Of course, it's the weeks after where things get really interesting!

Not necessarily. Two data points can be made to satisfy quite a lot of functions.

Simple example:

y=10(x^5)+10, where x = #of weeks since beginning.

Week 0: 10
Week 1: 20
Week 2: 330 :D




Also: Of course google would be able to do [url=http://www.google.com/search?q=y%3D10%28x^5%29%2B10]this[/url]. As soon as I thought to check, I already knew it would be able to.

Wow. Apparently having a caret in a url breaks it. Strange. This will work just as well, I suppose.

Sorry, I was thinking specifically of this comic when I wrote that.

edit: That's not to say I might not do some negative pushups given my state of fitness, mind you ;)

Pumped off 59 a couple days ago, so I'll contribute with that number.

4242 + 59 = 4301
Most people would post something witty, humourous, or perhaps offensive in their signature. Unfortunately, you won't find anything like this here.

I am utterly failing at being active. Must run tomorrow. Can't relapse entirely. Haven't lost everything yet - must salvage what I can so I don't have to start from scratch.

1 year 94 days to do 25,000.

At this rate, we'll get to 100,000 some time around the second week of December 2015.


Although I think the pace has slowed of late.

Diamond push ups are harder then they look. But maybe the running had something to do with it :)

5117 + 80 = 5197


Joined a gym yesterday. Really a pretty pathetic one, but it was only $10 a month, and sometimes I just really want access to equipment I don't have*. (And it's about a three minute drive from my doorstep.)

Those 80 sort of came in short spurts towards/at the end of my workout (rotating between normal, diamond and pike every five or so, with pauses for a few gulps of air in between). I was focusing more on exercises that I've had to neglect without access to real equipment, and just used the pushups to really burn out my last bit of will, once I could no longer do pretty much anything else.


...Still counting them, though.

(I'm going to be contributing less from now on, moved on to exclusively doing clappers, and they're a bit tougher than I'm used to, so can't do quite as many).

Now to find somewhere I can do pullups.
