    I have started doing pushups as part of my warm up routine. I'll log them here once a week. Probably on Sat or Sunday for the previous week

    Today was 20.

    168,172.

    Every bit helps, and log when you can!

    +120 as my new daily minimum standard of performance (MSP) is 60 instead of 50 to align with another goal's number.

    120 over the past two days (60 a day goal)
    8 to round it off

    168,480

    Not quite to 170,000 for the New Year, might go back tomorrow and figure out the "per year rate" of growth.

    50 in yesterday's workout, so 168,650.

    I was thinking about this challenge yesterday -- you realize that to get to the one million figure from when the challenge actually started (June 24, 2007) by today would've taken about 363 push-ups a day, or 7 people doing 52 a day (for seven and a half years!).

    The thread has averaged about 61 push-ups a day since inception.

    Makes that million look FAAAAAAAR off. :bang:

    "burn rate" of push-ups and this thread

    Yep, the two issues have been small amounts credited and long periods where this thread gets no new posts. I've also played around with numbers, like how long it would take if only 2-3 of us post 2,000 push-ups a month...

    Since the last time I posted I have worked out 6 times so that would be a total of 120 push ups.

    168,780 + 120 = 168,900.

    Been sick so workouts including push-ups severely scaled back. Dropped work weight about 10% today from before sick and building back up using Stronglifts 5x5

    A few more toward the Million

    200 or so as I recovered from being sick, got back to working out. Mainly doing a few push-ups in my warm-up circuit.

    Welcome to this seemingly eternal challenge! Now do 5 push-ups and get us past a 10,000 interval:

    30 yesterday as part of warm-up.

    169,995 :doh:
