    A little fitness game that everyone can participate in. It's kind of like the million pound challenge. Simply put, together as a collective effort we do push ups until we can hit 10 000.

    RULES:
    1. You may only post twice daily
    2. Do the push-ups BEFORE you post
    3. Be honest - you're only cheating yourself

    I did 60 pushups!

    Total for MR: 60

    I did 20 pushups!

    Total for MR: 80

    Yesterday I did 99!
    22, wait 2 min,
    19, wait 2 min,
    19, wait 2 min,
    17, wait 2 min,
    22

    Does that count?

    (I'm on my way to 100 consecutive pushups.)

    people, we need to tally otherwise this is just going to become a big mess.

    Simple, Iscariot makes the tally as he created the thread.

    20 pushups just then. explosive up and slow and controlled down.

    Forum Rules, Minor Problems, #6, Sequential Posts

    Not at all. But edit your (you plural, not you specifically) previous posts if you'd end up posting after yourself, rather than posting after yourself...

    For example, there was exactly 1 minute between the first 3 posts in this thread, all by the same person.

    The threads have to be on time to keep the count right; we can't simply go back and edit a previous thread. How else can this be accomplished?

    Try harder? Please don't post consecutive posts.. this shouldn't be too hard to do. It'll take a little more work, but I'd very much appreciate it.

    Thanks.

    I don't see that anyone has broken any of the stated rules of the challenge, just forum rules. I was merely trying to make Iscariot's tallying a little easier, but I can refrain.

    I think we should continue. Iscariot would very much enjoy it if we did, I think.

    just post wait 5 minutes until you post if doing mutiple sets of pushups and if the posts are still consecutive edit them into your previous post.

    i think everyone should just post their number and then at then the member than starts a new page makes a subtotal. if he/she forgets or doesnt know Iscariot or another moderator can post the subtotal.

    This is perilously close to exercise, but I'll donate 10.

    The only problem with that is determining what constitutes a "new page". For me, a new page starts at 40 posts, but the default is something like 10 (20?). But it's the right idea.
