I am in. Lets get it on.
My plan is to do ... a day. I am not going to give my strategy away so soon.

Hopefully after this I will be on step closer to 100 reps in one set.

Spent the weekend mountain biking and got a bit left behind with this one.

Combining this challenge with my own personal 10 minute challenge;
20x6=120 in 10 minutes on 6.10.08
10x5=50 in 5 minutes on 7.10.08
20+20+20=60 on 8.10.08

Total so far 230

When to start? Shall we give it a few days and then have a start date in a few days. If we have a midnight (local time) start time it will be staggered but everyone can report their exact finishing time.

How's that?

sounds perfect.

also propose that any type of pressup be included: hindu, fingertip, wide, etc.

also propse to include the dreaded 'half-pushup' IF your max # of 'standard' pushups is less than 10.

Yeah, half/knee/starter press up is fine, as long as this is clear what you're doing.

Fingertips etc as you wish, wont make it any easier.

How about a start on midnight Thurs/Fri (your local time)? Too soon?

OK - kick off is Midnight Thurs night/Friday morning, your local time. Gives everyone a chance to know when it is.

I'm going to repeatedly edit my post to show a latest total, it's up to you what you do.

Up to you. It's easier to edit the existing post like you have done.
