7 Weeks to 100 Push-Ups Book

7 Weeks to 100 Push-Ups

After launching the Hundred Pushups website several years ago, I received many email requests for a book of the same title. Well, as luck would have it, a well-known publisher, Ulysses Press, backed me in my quest to write a comprehensive and challenging publication about everyone's favorite exercise - the humble pushup!

7 Weeks to 100 Push-Ups was published June 1st, 2009 and can be purchased at the following online retailers (prices correct November 16th, 2015 and subject to change):

Also, be sure to check out your local Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million or Borders store who may be carrying 7 Weeks to 100 Push-Ups. If they don't have the book in stock, politely inform them that they should be selling it!

If you're a store owner interested in selling the book, feel free to contact Publishers Group West - the main distributor for Ulysses Press - which I believe nearly every bookstore in the country has an account with.

Speaking of Ulysses Press, they've also published many other fitness books, including the excellent 7 Weeks to 300 Sit-Ups, 7 Weeks to 50 Pull-Ups and 7 Weeks to Getting Ripped. More details on these and other "7 Weeks" books can be found here.

The Amazon.com book description

It's the world's most recognizable, straight-forward exercise, but most people don't know it's actually a hardcore full-body workout. 7 Weeks to 100 Push-Ups is the ultimate program to train the body to go from just one push-up to 100 consecutive reps in under two months—sculpting muscles in the chest, abs, back, glutes and arms without a single piece of unwieldy equipment.

The book starts with detailed instructions on how to perform a proper push-up and how to maximize its benefit, breaking down the strength-building effects muscle by muscle. In addition there are day-by-day and week-by-week exercise plans that outline how to work up to 100 push-ups safely and effectively.

I've also included a comprehensive warm-up and post-exercise stretching routine, six different workout plans covering all levels of ability and a basic maintenance plan so you can keep the strength and fitness you've worked hard to attain.

There is also section detailing at least a dozen advanced pushup exercises, some great pushups trivia and a useful collection of frequently asked questions.

Naturally I'm hoping the book will be a success and if this website is anything to go by, 7 Weeks to 100 Push-Ups will be on the best sellers list in no time at all!

Thank you everyone for supporting the Hundred Pushups program and allowing me the opportunity to expand on the simple idea of doing pushups to get fit.

Happy pushups!
