Can you do 10 pushups in one minute? Great. Now can you do that ten times in a row? Before you think to yourself that this sounds too easy, understand that we’re going to make it a challenge by manipulating the way you do pushups. In this push up challenge you will have to do increasingly difficult versions of the push up and see if you can complete all 100 in 10 minutes.

After a quick warmup, it is time to get to the action. Each of the pushup variations you do are going to be performed with a steady cadence until all 10 reps are completed. At this point, you will be able to rest for however much time remains in your one minute period. For instance, if it takes you 25 seconds to do the ten reps of pushups, then you will earn 35 seconds of rest before you need to do the next pushup variation.

Keep a running stopwatch and be sure to start each new pushup at the top of the minute. You must complete the final 40 second hover hold without touching in order to have successfully completed this challenge. Here are the exercises in order.

Standard Pushups – 10 reps
Prowler Pushups – 10 reps
Archer Pushups – 10 reps
Posted Push Ups – 5 eps each arm
Rolling Plyo Push Ups – 10 reps
Hannibal Pushups – 10 reps
Foot Plant Pushups – 10 reps
Cliffhanger Pushups – 10 reps
Hand Plant Push Ups – 10 reps
Standard Pushups – 5 reps (20 second hold) 5 reps (40 second hold)

Don’t let the simplicity of this chest workout challenge fool you. The later pushups will catch up to you quickly if you don’t pace yourself during the earlier rounds. Do the challenge and see if you make it all the way to the end. Make sure to share this with a friend and dare them to try it as well. If you are really bold, make a video of you doing the 100 pushup challenge and post it here on youtube.
