    Yea I don't see the poin though. Why not do more beneficial work on your chest rather than tailor a regimen just to complete 100 push ups?

    I'm gonna go try to see how many I can do in the work lunchroom on my next break.

    Well, to answer a rhetorical question with a question (and then answer my own question): What's worse than doing a sub-optimal but low-risk workout regime? Answer: Not doing anything.

    I'd say that the bulk of people who pick up this program will do some push-ups, work up some sweat, and move on. Hopefully, when they do, they'll move on to something better rather than back to a sedentary lifestyle.

    Well, for me I'm feeling kinda plateau'd on my strength workout (5x5) and I was thinking about going high rep for a month or two anyhow (plus maybe slice off a pound or two of unused bodyweight). So doing a combination of alot of pushups+situps+pullups+jump squats was in the cards anyhow. If I can hit a significant mental milestone along the way, well that just frickin rocks.

    I may try this. I was working toward this goal anyway.

    Where the hell is the antagonist work in this program? It's incredibly irresponsible for someone to be putting something out like this as though it's a good idea.

    Edit: For those of you that are playing along at home, abort mission. Unless you are including an equal amount of antagonist work in this "routine", you will not enjoy the results. Especially if you are already heavily involved in some manner of striking.

    Could you elaborate on that? I understand what you mean by antagonist, but I'm curious as to what kind of exercises are antagonistic to a pushup. Flies?

    Flies are working the same muscles as push-ups. Push-ups are a horizontal push. You want to oppose them with a horizontal pull. Something like bent over rows or fat man pull-ups would work. If you can't manage that, at least do some regular pull-ups, and throw in some rear delt work.

    It's never a good idea to just work one set of muscles and not the others.

    I've seen these type routines before .... usually designed to help max out a military PFT. Ive also seen routines designed to get to 20 pullups ... what do you think about doing both together (pushup/pullup routine) for someone wanting to max out their PFT?

    Something like Pavel's ladder would be appropriate to work with. I'd still throw in some supplemental rear delt work for the sake of shoulder health, but if someone has a specific goal of maxing a PFT, specificity is the key, and comes at the sacrafice of health and effectiveness. A had a buddy at VMI, and pretty much everyone maxed their PFT because everyone did the PFT everytime they trained. They got real good at it real fast, haha.
