100 pushups book

7 Weeks to 100 Push-Ups

Sin­ce laun­ching the Hun­dred Push Ups web site many mon­ths ago, I’ve rece­ived many ema­il requ­ests for a book of the same title. Well, as luck would have it, a well-known publi­sher, Ulys­ses Press, is bac­king me in my quest to wri­te a com­pre­hen­si­ve and chal­len­ging publi­ca­tion abo­ut everyone’s favo­ri­te exer­ci­se — the hum­ble push-up!

7 Weeks to 100 Push-Ups is my first attempt at wri­ting a book and I’ve been hard at work for seve­ral mon­ths put­ting toge­ther a quali­ty pro­duct. I hope you like it!

The book is now offi­cial­ly ava­ila­ble and can be pur­cha­sed at the fol­lo­wing onli­ne reta­ilers (pri­ces cor­rect August 24th, 2009 and sub­ject to chan­ge):

The Ama­zon book descrip­tion:It’s the world’s most reco­gni­za­ble, stra­ight-for­ward exer­ci­se, but most people don’t know it’s actu­al­ly a hard­co­re full-body wor­ko­ut. 7 Weeks to 100 Push-Ups is the ulti­ma­te pro­gram to tra­in the body to go from just one push-up to 100 con­se­cu­ti­ve reps in under two months—sculpting musc­les in the chest, abs, back, glu­tes and arms witho­ut a sin­gle pie­ce of unwiel­dy equ­ip­ment.

The book starts with deta­iled instruc­tions on how to per­form a pro­per push-up and how to maxi­mi­ze its bene­fit, bre­aking down the strength-buil­ding effects musc­le by musc­le. In addi­tion the­re are day-by-day and week-by-week exer­ci­se plans that outli­ne how to work up to 100 push-ups safe­ly and effec­ti­ve­ly.

I’ve also inc­lu­ded a com­pre­hen­si­ve warm-up and post-exer­ci­se stret­ching routi­ne, six dif­fe­rent wor­ko­ut plans cove­ring all levels of abi­li­ty and a basic main­te­nan­ce plan so you can keep the strength and fit­ness you’ve wor­ked hard to atta­in.

The­re is also sec­tion deta­iling at least a dozen advan­ced push-up exer­ci­ses, some gre­at push-ups tri­via and a use­ful col­lec­tion of fre­qu­en­tly asked questions.

Natu­ral­ly I’m hoping the book will be a suc­cess and if this web site is any­thing to go by, 7 Weeks to 100 Push-Ups will be on the best sel­lers list in no time at all!

Thank you eve­ry­one for sup­por­ting the Hun­dred Push Ups pro­gram and allo­wing me the oppor­tu­ni­ty to expand on the sim­ple idea of doing push-ups to get fit.

Hap­py push-ups!
