Put yourself to the test this year with a weekly press up challenge you can get involved with! (Check out the latest ones at the bottom of the page)
What's up guys, you are in for a real treat with this one!
I decided around November last year to do a nice tasty push up challenge for 2017!
Each week is a new workout, 52 DIFFERENT workouts all based on this simple structure.
The 100 Push Up Challenge
The 100 push up challenge is a framework and each week I will making it progressively harder with different variations starting at the simplest and ending somewhere pretty extraordinary.
Every week I will put out the new 100 push up challenge and you guys can all get involved on Instagram by tagging me @morethanlifting and giving it the #100pushupchallenge tag to join the party

Now You Know The Rules, Let's Get Stuck In
The 100 Push Up Challenge Framework
The Challenge Framework
The framework is very very simple:
5 sets x 20 reps = 100 reps
Each set will be a different variation (except for January where I will do beginner challenges of 2-3 exercises)
Once February comes around it is going to pick up fast and I want to see just how stupid crazy they can get by the end of the year!
It will be fun!
I will be doubling this up with an article on the each week so you can come back any time to check them out or if you want to join in.
I want this to be a free challenge anyone can take part in which is why I am going to start with the basics and I think making it progressively harder will help others to understand how calisthenics progressions can work.
Why Push Ups?
Push ups are a simple stop and drop exercise that everyone knows already.
They can be done anywhere with enough space to lay on the floor.
So it doesn't matter if you are in a hotel or on a field.
You don't need any equipment, other than a wall maybe, or a bench or chair to pop your feet on - stairs also work.
The point is, its accessible.
Plus they can be fun, they can be made infinitely harder with various methods - and we will get into them all.
I'm talking handstand push ups to one arm push ups to aztec push ups and more.
By the end of this year I am going to have a whole host of different variations of the 100 push up challenge for you to dig your nails into, newbie to mastery.
