Click here to get started I want to share something with you that I think is really cool that I found in the April 2010 (pg. 46) issue of Men’s Health Magazine. It’s a 3-minute pushup challenge by a really smart guy named Martin Rooney. Martin is a strength coach in New Jersey for MMA guys and pro football players, so he really knows his stuff. He came up with this 3-minute pushup challenge. Here are the rules Do as many pushups as you can in 3 minutes. Do your pushups until you are 2 inches from the floor and perfect form for each one. When you do your pushups, there is a bit of a strategy with them. When you do your first set, do not go to failure. This is the biggest mistake people make. Just go nice and strong, but only do about 40% of what you can do for your maximum pushups. I can do 57 pushups in a row, so when I tried this, I just did 20 then took a 15 second rest and so on. In the end, I was able to do 114 pushups. That beats the extraordinary level of 111. You have to get more than 55, because anything lower is below average. The key is not to go to failure or anywhere near failure. Just go until you start to slow down a little bit and then take a 15 second rest. Then go at them again and do the same amount and rest again. Then expect about a 20% reductions to the end. Let us know how you do on the YouTube
