Take that, noodle arms. It's on.

OK, so blog pal Tim and his training cohorts over at Train With Tim have inspired me with the push-up throwdown. It's definitely not going to be fun at all whatsoever, but that's just details.

There are official rules here, but I'll let Tim sum them up:

ODD days - Do 100 push ups in as few sets as possible in addition to your regularly scheduled workout of cardio exercises. You can still do upper body workouts on these days if you are already on a program. This is a supplemental 100 push-ups using maximum repetition sets (2 x 50, 4 x 25 ... it's your choice how you get to 100).

EVEN days - Do 100 push-ups throughout the day. This can be little sets of ten done every half hour or fifty push-ups done twice times throughout the day.

How it Works - Today, see how many push-ups you can do in one try. Then starting tomorrow, repeat the ODD/EVEN routine for a total of 10 days. Then take three days off from push-ups. On day 14, give yourself the push-up test and see how many you can do.

So, that's it. There is a point, I'm sure, other than hurting myself, but I'll worry about that after I complete the challenge. I'm a sucker for a challenge. Which, coincidentally, is a nice segue into my next post.

But first: please note the changes in my sidebar. All the blogs from the blogroll are still there, but I pulled out and re-categorized the fitness blogs so they'd be easier for the fitness buffs to find. I also added some of my favorite fitness links.

Feel free to ignore all of it. Just throwin' it out there. Throw it back, if you'd like.
