Increase Your Maximum Push Ups

I don’t know about the rest of the world, but for me, motivation comes in spurts. Sometimes the spurts are long enough to get me into a habit, and sometimes that habit I worked so hard to form breaks from life intrusions.

Well today I found another little spurt of motivation to help me continue pushing up towards the 1000 push-ups goal. It’s a routine developed by a former navy seal, Stew Smith, to increase the maximum number of push ups you can do - JUST what I’ve been looking for!

The schedule is 10 days long, and looks like this:

Days 1, 3, 5, 7, 9: 200 push-ups each day in as few sets as possible, resting 2 minutes between each set.

Days 2, 4, 6, 8, 10: 200 push-ups each day however you’d like to do them; the number of sets and rest time doesn’t matter.

Sounds simple enough that I’m once again motivated. I’m starting today, day 1/10 - and I can currently do 41 continuous push-ups.

Here’s to 1000!




If you like this post, give me 10 cents….and I’ll give you 10 push ups.”
