  • Great website for pushups

    Hey all,

    i know i'm a rook here so hopefully this is accepted well. I am starting my academy in less than two weeks (the 18th) and have been following the Hundred Pushup Website for the last two weeks. I have found I can do more pushups in a row due to the staggered style training. If anyone is interested in it, its hundredpushups.com

    Thanks, and Stay Safe out there!

    I also tried this training style & was very impressed with the results.
    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we might as well dance.

        Me also. I do the third on saturday morning and then i'll be in week three. When the academy starts i'll be right at the beginning of week 4 (aug 18th) so that should be a good head start. i probably wont continue it during the academy since they'll be making us work out there anyway. i hope it helps you guys out.

                            The January, 2003 issue of The Journal of Orthopaedic and Sports Physical Therapy reports a study conducted by the Army found using the "Modified Kersey Method" significantly impoved sit-up performance.

                            The Modified Kersey Method:
                            1. Initially, perform 3 sets at 50% of the pretraining 2-minute sit-up test score.
                            2. Once able to complete all repetitions for all 3 sets, add a 4th set.
                            3. Once able to complete all repetitions for all 4 sets, return to performing 3 sets but at 75% of the pretraining 2-minute sit-up test score.
                            4. Again, once able to complete all repetitions for all 3 sets, add a 4th set.
                            5. Once able to complete all repetitions for all 4 sets, return to performing 3 sets but at 90% of the pretraining 2-minute sit-up test score.

                            The Modified Kersey Method was developed and used by the late Colonel Douglas Kersey, a former US Army physical therapist. Kersey's original method was used to improve performance in exercises requiring a combination of strength and endurance (sit-ups, push-ups) and extended the number of sets to 6, whereas this study utilized a maximum of 4 sets before progressing the intensity.
