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!
