Having a little crack pipe think about doing a large amount of pushups while on VFW ZA.

Will get a 40kg weight vest to even up the challenge. Just so you know, we are going to do them Olympic pushup style, hips and chest to the floor. No dodgy powerlifter parallel pushups allowed.

LOL, it would be more fair if you wore the vest. I am not a bencher.

Put you on the table, some people say Talyn is secretly doing the 100 pushup iphone app program, best to catch him quickly.

Those are ambitious push-ups, Lordmuppet!

Have the rules become stricter? I don't think it used to be "boobs to the floor"?

If below parallell / tennis ball distance to floor is still ok, you can update me to 35.

I hope not, I use a trainer to guide me cause I cheat a bit :oops: It's the closest I have to tennis ball size but it's about a cm bigger. If that doesn't count I can do a fair few less than I thought

I’m not sure how strick to be on myself, there’s 40 there (I counted 41 before, must have counted the belly flop) but full ones might 32. I think I can honestly say 35. Anyways, video

Maybe I should just do it again in a few days and make myself do them all properly :lol:

I'd rather top the chinup table, to be honest.
