This review is from: 7 Weeks to 100 Push-Ups: Strengthen and Sculpt Your Arms, Abs, Chest, Back and Glutes by Training to do 100 Consecutive Push-Ups (Paperback)
I've always done a variety of exercise programs and have found this one helps keep me on track. Not only am I consistently doing the hundred pushups program as spelled out on the website, but I'm more motivated to do my other fitness activities on the other days. It's nice to have everything all laid out for me, with real numbers and goals to focus on. Having those numbers help push me past the point where I may think I'm "exhausted." Three weeks ago, I maxed out on a single set of 17 pushups. Today I maxed out at 34 pushups, and that's after doing sets of 21, 25, 21, and 21 pushups. Obviously, the program works much better than if I had simply told myself to do as many as possible each day.
I started this program from the website before purchasing the book. Be forewarned that the workouts in the book don't seem to match up with the website (hence, my reason for 4 stars instead of 5). But, don't let that deter you. Stick with the book's workout or the website's workout, one or the other. I like the website because you can log your progress and even post it on Facebook if you want. Even though I'm following the website's pushups program, I'm still glad I got the book, which complements the website with motivational reading material and everything you ever wanted to know about pushups.
The hundred pushups book is inexpensive and well worth it. However, if you really want to be cheap about it, just go to the website and do the workout for free. I'm glad I bought this inexpensive book to help support the work that the author has put into developing a fine, effective exercise program.
