Default 1000 Pushups Jack LaLanne Challenge

Bodybygamma suggested we do 1,000 pushups to honor Jack LaLanne.

In Honor Of Jack Lalanne I think everyone should also work up to a 1000 push ups no matter how long it takes to get there.

Anyone who is jumping in, please post your push-ups-a-thon in this thread...

So, 1 push-up per day and it'll take me 3 years to complete, sort of thing?


As long as I don't have to do the 1,000 all in one go, I'm in

No logs needed. Just post in this thread.

It can take a year to complete if you'd like. It's more to honor the man by standing in his shadow than to send yourself to the emergency room.

Just completed 1000 push ups and added 1000 situps for fun. I did 18 set of 50 and 5 sets of 20 starting at 8 am this morning.

RIP Jack Lalanne
