Product Description
Day program
Easily access your personalized program

If you're serious about increasing your strength, follow this six week training program and you'll soon be on your way to completing 100 consecutive push-ups. Think there's no way you could do this? You can! All you need is a good plan, plenty of discipline, and about 30 minutes a week to achieve your goal.

No doubt there are those of you out there that can already do 50 consecutive push-ups, but let's face it, you're in a big minority. Most people will only be able to do 5, or 10, or 20. Or maybe you've tried the "good-form" push-ups, but can only manage one or two before you drop to the floor, exhausted. Don't be despondent; several alternative options exist which will still enable you to follow the Hundred Pushups plan.

Why Push-Ups?

The main aim of the Hundred Pushups program is to improve your overall strength, fitness, and general health. Push-ups are one of the most basic exercises for the human body. Not only are they great for your chest, they do a tremendous job of defining your abs, triceps, shoulders, and torso. Best of all, push ups can be performed no matter where you are and are completely free--no need to buy expensive equipment or pay gym fees.

The Program

The Hundred Pushups program begins with an initial performance test. Simply do as many good form push-ups as you possibly can and input the number to view a six-week program customized for your skill level. Don't cheat on your initial test! While the results may be humbling, being honest will ensure you get the best strengthening plan that will help you stick with it!

About the App

The official Hundred Pushups app by SoftwareX brings all the features of the online program to the convenience of your Android device. Enter the number of official push-ups and you will be on your way to starting the program. Tap to see how many push-ups your first set should contain and then tap to initiate the rest timer--a countdown to the next set for that day! You can change the number of sets you completed if it differed from the standard program and update Facebook or Twitter with your daily success. Track your progress under Logs & Graphs and get tips for each week. The app also includes detailed information on how to complete a good form push-up.

Please note that the Hundred Pushups Android app should be seen as a companion, rather than a replacement, to the website. It simply offers daily convenience at the touch of an icon!

3.0 out of 5 stars It could be useful May 26, 2011

Oddly enough, I just started the 100 pushups program after seeing this app in the store, but I wasn't willing to pay for it since you can get information on the program and documents to chart your progress for free on the Internet. But since the app was free today I thought I'd give it a shot. I does have the basic structure of the program mapped out, with a handy automatic timer built in for your rest periods, and a graph to chart your performance. I could do this on paper, certainly, but it will be more convenient to have it on the phone - particularly at the end of the workout when my arms are rubber and it's a chore just getting off the floor, much less writing a bunch of stuff down.

The obvious drawback here is that there's no explanation of what you're doing. There's no summary of the program, and there's no indication that the last set of each workout is meant to be done to exhaustion - the number listed for the last set is the minimum number you're supposed to do. I don't know yet if the app takes into account the performance tests you're supposed to take at the end of weeks 2, 4 and 5, but I would assume that it does; if it doesn't then there's really no point. Even so, while the app seems handy for tracking your progress, you're still going to have to spend a little time online to figure out what you're supposed to do.

This is a decent idea, trying to motivate you into doing 100 pushups at once without stopping. A worthy goal for anybody who wants to be considered healthy. You do an initial test to see how many pushups you can do and it then does a 6-week workout schedule to get you to 100 pushups at once.

First of all, this app is VERY confusing. There are no instructions and it is hard to tell what it is the app is trying to tell you. After using it for a few days I've begun to understand what it is trying to do but I can see why so many people will give up on the app easily enough.

Another thing I don't like is that it isn't very customizable. I don't think exercise can be easily put into a one-size fit all solution for everybody. For instance, I think I could get to 100 pushups in less than 6 weeks if I work at it. However, this doesn't give you the option to speed things up or slow things down. Also, what if my goal is something beyond 100 pushups, or less. I wish I could program it to get me to 250 pushups at once in 10 weeks. That is something that I would rather shoot for. Or for some people I know, 100 is a pipe-dream no matter how hard they work for 6 weeks. For some, getting to 50 would be a real, solid accomplishment. But again, there is no option for that.

It ran fine and didn't crash or freeze on my EVO 4G. I just think they need a better interface and add the ability to customize your workout more in order for this to be better appreciated.

4.0 out of 5 stars Straightforward Push-up Routine June 9, 2011
Verified Purchase
This program is designed to motivate you enough to get to the point where you do 100 push-ups. About three weeks ago I barely managed to do 10 knee push-ups. When I saw this app featured for free I decided to give it a try.

First of all, the app is very basic, which has its good and bad points. The good thing is that it's so simple you don't need to go through a lot of setup to get started. On the bad side, there's not a lot of information about the app, so if you don't "get it" you will need to struggle through on your own. However, the website (search "hundred pushups") has more info.

The app works like this: you take the initial test to see how many push-ups you can do. I managed 20 on the test -- twice what I had done the previous week. Wow! I guess just loading the app was encouragement! ;) Two days later, I started the program. Ideally you're supposed to do the push-ups three times a week. For my first workout the app assigned me 45 push-ups, divided up into 5 sets of 10, 12, 7, 7, and 9, with a minute of rest in between sets. By week 2, day 2, the app had me doing 71 push-ups, with a two-minute rest between sets. There is a feature to show a graph of your total number of push-ups, or a log that tells you the total and the numbers for each individual set.

When you start a workout, the app shows you how many push-ups to do in a large box. There is a "done" box underneath for when you're finished. Then it displays a clock that counts down your rest time. At 5 seconds, it chimes until the counter reaches zero, then you do the next set of push-ups. At the end of the five sets, it shows five small icons, one for each set, so you can adjust the numbers if you weren't able to do the recommended amount of push-ups.

All the problems people are talking about seem to be addressed. If you don't do enough reps in a certain set you can change the number after that days workout.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible App for a good program May 26, 2011
Verified Purchase
I have been doing the Hundred Pushup program for a while now and I was excited to see that the App was the free app of the day today. However I quickly found that this is a terrible app that does not help me reach my goal of 100 consecutive pushups.

First off, the app only does the 2nd column. If you go to the hundred pushups website, each week has 3 columns. I have been doing column 3 and the app suddenly doesnt even acknowledge that there is a column 3.

Second off, no one ever passes every day on their first try, the app doesnt give you a way to input how many pushups you actually did. If you were supposed to do 20 but could only squeeze out 18 your only choice is to hit "done" and move to the next set. The app then assumes that you did your 20 and logs it as such on the graph. This is flat out terrible.

So, if you are someone that is doing column 2 and if you can pass every set of every day on your first try, this app is for you. For those of us that aren't superman or batman, this app is completely and totally useless.
