20,000 Push-ups In 2017

Back in 2015 when I started on this journey to transform my body, I tried to do some push-ups one evening. I cannot recall the exact number of push-ups I was able to do that evening, but I know for sure that none of them were actual push-ups, because I was not able – mentally or physically – to complete even one full rep… so I did a few sets of standing (wall) push-ups.

I’ve come a very long way since then, with hundreds, even thousands of completed push-ups in 2015 and 2016.

This post will be used as a log for my personal challenge to complete 20,000 push-ups in 2017.

PROCEDURES:

  • Count every single push-up that I do during the year, whether it is just a small number, whether it is multiple sets in a longer session, whether it is one single max-out set.
  • I am going for muscle failure, so instead of going for 55-60 push-ups each day, I will go for 2-3 weekly sessions containing higher total reps (150-200) in sets of 10 or 20, totaling 300-500 reps each week.
  • Use different types of push-ups at different times, for variety, and also to keep my muscles guessing: regular, elevated, IronGym, Handle, Dumbbell, etc.
  • Keep a tally of all the completed push-ups, and share it here.
  • Document every single push-up on video.
  • Do at least one log entry every week, which would include a completed tally-up, videos, photos, impressions, supplementation, etc.

I invite you to join me on this journey! You can do so by checking in regularly for my updates in here, by subscribing to my YOUTUBE, TWITTER, INSTAGRAM, and FACEBOOK channels.

Maybe you can start your own push-up challenge and see how far you can push yourself. If you do, make sure to let me know about it so I can follow your progress.

Thank you for following along on my “20,000 Push-ups in 2017” challenge.
Happy New Year!

  1. Chase dude says:

    Will come back to watch you go through with this challenge.
    Great idea.

  2. Wesley says:

    Why so early in the morning?

    • NoCarbsNoSugar says:

      It won’t always be that early in the morning.
      I did the first couple videos during my Winter break, so my sleeping schedule was a bit different. As I go back to work in a few days, my times will change a bit.

  3. MetalHead says:

    this will be fun to follow along with
    how come no PWO?

    • NoCarbsNoSugar says:

      Thanks!
      My push-up sessions last around 15 minutes, including resting time between sets. I don’t see (or feel) the need for a PWO for such a short session.

      I do use a PWO occasionally, but only for my longer lifting/cardio sessions.
      In the end, I do prefer working out WITHOUT a PreWorkout.
      Plus, the Amino Shooter Edge from Champion Performance already has some caffeine in it. I use it as an IntraWorkout and it is giving me enough of a boost.

  4. Nick says:

    nice progress already

  5. selena says:

    didn’t know coffee was a preworkout πŸ˜€
    and… pajamas???

    • NoCarbsNoSugar says:

      coffee is probably my favorite PreWorkout so far πŸ˜€
      what’s wrong with pajamas?
      a dude needs to be relaxed

  6. star gazer says:

    have you tried a max-rep session yet?

  7. gold fish keeper says:

    I imagine that as you (might) increase the reps for your sessions, you might also start using a PreWorkout. What do you think?

    • NoCarbsNoSugar says:

      10 reps seem to work well for me at this time.
      I tried 12 last week but I was getting too tired too fast.

      A push-up session is to short for me to justify taking a PreWorkout for it. I need a session to be at least 30 minutes long before I would consider using a PWO for it.

  8. dwight says:

    nice progress so far

  9. Ceci says:

  17. ChiFitCross says:

    Good job so far.
    Impressive.
    Getting to the half-point.

  18. CraigsListDude says:

    Great consistency.
    You are a bit ahead on your YouTube channel.
    Slacking off, eh? πŸ˜€

    • NoCarbsNoSugar says:

      Thanks!

      Yes, I don’t always get a chance to come in here and update.
      When I do, I’ll get 2-3 sessions updated.
      As of now I completed session #44.
      Will update later this week πŸ˜€

  19. UtahNow says:

    Your YouTube channel is awesome.

  20. StrengthSignal says:

    You’ve done good so far and have been pretty consistent.

    • NoCarbsNoSugar says:

      Thanks, SS.
      I am almost at the half-point of the year, but I have not yet reached 10K.
      Oh well. Will do my best to get up in numbers while trying to improve my posture and ROM, which is actually more important than the number in the end.

      I believe I can reach 10K with decent posture and ROM by the year’s end though.

  21. Zachary G. says:

    That is a lot of pushups.
    I don’t think I did so many pushups in my lifetime.
    Seriously.

    • NoCarbsNoSugar says:

      Two years ago, I couldn’t do more than 2-3 push-ups if my life depended on it.
      If I can do, than YOU can do it, too! πŸ˜€

  22. shampoo king says:

    Your pushups have improved a lot since you first started, don’t you think?

  23. NoCarbsNoSugar says:

    I fell behind on updating the videos in here, though I kept them going on YouTube. I just added all session videos from #60 through #95. I hit the 16K mark this morning. Almost there now.
