DontPunchBabies, have you followed the program on that website? How did it work for you?
It looks awesome. I started doing it like 20 minutes after he posted it.
Haha, I thought the same thing. Looks very awesome. I have a perfect push up set and barely ever use it. This would be perfect.
Damn a pic of your daughter and the word cox in the same post. Lol.

It is ALWAYS a great day to be a Spartan!!!!
I do a bunch of varieties of pushups. And the best single chest exercise is not the bench but (drum roll) dips! I didn't believe it but leaning forward a big really makes my chest look damn good
Week 2 is probably the hardest. Works great when you keep with it. First time I started, my shoulder told me to take a month off. Second time went through, finished and...well...took a month off. Plan on starting it back up after I get back from vacation at the end of the month. At its worst its 10-15 minutes out of your day, 3 times a week.
1) you are wrong.
2) it is posts like this that keep us from having good things.

If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day.
P90x pushups, yes.

I did that program a ciuple years back....I got up to about 60 but it just assumes you can keep increasing the number you can do each week, which wasn't the case.
how many people actually do pushups the right way? chest to the floor, and only chest to the floor on every single rep? oh thats right everyone on this board.
How many people know when to use the shift key?

your chest is actually supposed to touch the floor? I thought an inch or two away
Dammit beat me to it.
Just another pic with audio
Yes. "Hand release" pushups are more challenging. Go all the way down and let your chest hit/rest on the floor by pulling your hands up off the floor. Then, push back up and repeat.
Other variations....use a kettlebell or medicine ball to support one hand while resting the other hand on the floor. Do 10-15 pushups, then switch hands, and repeat.
And as someone else said, dips are an excellent chest exercise.
If my chest hits the floor I fall asleep.
I had a very similar pull up program that helped a lot. You plataeu in these things, its impossilbe to keep up with the progressions they have. However if you stick wtih it, you'll see yourself get up there a ways, but that could really be said by just doing push ups/pull ups/anything in general; at least, to a point.
100 pushups in 5 minutes. Repeat.
2 chairs, 100 dips in 5 minutes.
30 pull ups in 2 minutes.
John Gotti use to do 1,000 pushups a day in Florence, CO.
Who was talking sets? I meant if I do five push-ups on Monday and then don't do anymore until Friday, I can only do two and a half or three push-ups. You have to keep after it.

Gotta look good in your affliction gear at all the Scottsdale skank clubs.
I must be crazy to be in a loony bin like this.
3 sets of 40. probably 3 times a week. It is a great exercise.
If you guys step up your game you can turn out just like Herschel Walker (for better or worse). Apparently he does 1500 pushups, 3500 situps, and one 8 mile run a day... all while only eating one vegetarian meal each day. He claims he never uses weights. If that's true, I'm guessing it works because that dude is a beast.

genetics might have something to do with it.
To some extent... but if he at McDonalds and drank beer (something he has claimed to have never done), I kind of doubt he would resemble the man he is/was. Genetics have a lot less to do with build then you would think... but hey, it's a good excuse if you are lazy and feel guilty about looking like a fat slob.
edit: not you, personally... just people in general haha.
