My plan to get anyone to do 100 push-ups in a single training session is this:
Get in shape:
If you can’t do 10 push-ups on your toes in a plank position, then start doing this routine on your knees, with hands wider than shoulders, so that as you lower, your elbows line up over your wrists like a field goal post formation. Then work up to doing 2 on your toes, and 8 on your knees, then 5 and 5 until finally you are strong enough to do 10 push-ups at a time on your toes.
Do 10 full plank push-ups on your toes with wide hand stance.
Turn over onto your back and do 1 minute of crunches (any crunches will do, if you want to mix it up, steal some moves from my Hard Core Abs video.)
Repeat this for 10 sets (100 push-ups). It should take about half an hour. You can finish here, or do some plyometric cardio moves, or go for a 30 minute jog before or after this routine. Then shower and go brag to your friends.
Next week I will write about push-up variations for when you have mastered the NikkiFitness Push-Up Boot Camp.
