A Couple of Things ...

First, Happy St. Patty's Day to everyone -- stay away from the green beer!

We are up to 35 hardcore peeps for the push up challenge.  It begins on Monday the 22nd.  Do your Initial Fit Test and let me know the number and it will be posted on the left sidebar.

If you aren't sure how you want to do your push ups and you are looking for something a little more challenging than the normal push up then check out this video I pirated from my good buddy Boomer at  This is how I am going to roll:

When I was a kid the movie "Clash of the Titans" was one of my favorites.  I used to watch it over and over again and loved every minute of it.  About 2 years ago I saw it again for the first time in probably 20 years and like many of my favorites it was extremely dated.  I remember thinking that this would be a really cool movie to remake because of what can be done with special effects today.  Well, being that Hollywood is pretty much out of ideas and will recycle any old movie they can I should not have been surprised when I saw the trailer for the remake.  And it looks awesome!  I cannot wait until April 2nd.  Enjoy:

Thanks for Reading,



  1. I used to watch Clash of the Titans with my dad all the time when I was younger. I cannot wait for the new movie to come out! I'm going to have to find a babysitter so my husband and I can go see it! I wonder if they'll incorporate that little owl into it?? Ha ha

  2. after the hundredpushups challenge I will try! lol...I did initial test...and 23 pushups...I am going to steall that video to motivate more of my blog readers to follow that challenge!

    Cheers from Hong Kong!

    "XTB" Xavi.

  3. Aimee - I am pumped. My wife is not but it is my turn to select the movie so she is stuck going!

    I have watched a couple of trailers and haven't seen the little owl yet? They can't leave the owl out - the owl was my favorite part when i was a kid!

    Xavi - nice job on the PUs.

  4. Hi Jeff,
    Yea, don't count on me doing fancy push-ups like that:) I am having a hard enough time with the basic one:) Great video! Happy St. Patty's Day!

  5. Happy St. Patty's Day! I can't wait to see Clash of the Titans.

  6. Wow, there are a lot of people signed up for the 100! I am looking forward to starting on March 22.

    The "Clash" trailer looks pretty good.

  7. That guy makes the "clap plyo" PU's from P90X look like childs play. The "handcuff" PU is one I've tried. Once.

  8. Hey,

    Not only am I gaining weight, but I only did 10 PU yesterday down from 20.


  9. regular push ups for me thanks. challenging enough i think based on my soreness from my initial fit test and my unofficial first day that i did on monday as "practice."

  10. I did more push ups last night and am again sore today.

    Steve - I can't believe you tried those suckers -- looks like an injury waiting to happen!

  11. I will jump in! Is it just a friendly comp to work thru the program? I hope to "test" today or tomorrow... Will come
    back to let you know my initial results (hope I don't forget lol).

  12. How do I get in on this 100 pushup challenge, I've been aiming for that and recently just hit the half century mark.

  13. Lindsay and Jameson - Welcome to the challenge! Give me your fit test results before the 22nd!

  14. Deep fried twinkie? Can't get down with that I'm afraid, but the BBQ turkey leg looks amazing.
    However, 100 pushup challenge? I am so down with that if you need one more. I will do my test tomorrow.

  15. Mark - you are in buddy! Let the push ups begin1
