OK, thats probably not true. It may come as a shock to many of you that the glamorous life of a software engineer/father doesn’t leave a lot of time for exercise. I wouldn’t call myself “fat”, but the Morgan from 8 years ago would have mocked me and called me lazy. On Friday my fellow platypus in arms told me about hundredpushups.com. The idea is simple, do a simple test to see how many push-ups you can do, then do push ups three times a week for six weeks and by the end you should be able to do 100.

100 push ups? Dare I dream? Yes, why not. I did the test tonight and, being very careful not to cheat at all, I did 21 solid and respectable push ups. That puts me right in the middle of rank 3 (15-29 push ups). I will follow the plan, which is easy as it requires little time and no equipment, and let you all know how I do. If I can do it, I will make a donation to the hundred push ups program creator so he can get an old school Volkswagen bus.
