Even if you have no aspirations to join the Marines, you have to admit that knocking out a set of 100 push-ups at a clip would be pretty heroic—not to mention it would give you awesome upper-body strength and endurance. We asked three top coaches for a plan to get you there. “Train three days a week. On Day 1, do 3–4 sets of weighted pushups for 12–15 reps. Day 2, bench-press for 3–4 sets of 8–10 reps. Day 3, do regular push-ups for 2–3 sets of 20–25 or more reps. Each week, increase the load on the first two days and increase the reps on the third.

You’ll get there in a few weeks to a few months.”Kevin Neeld, Director at Endeavor Sports Performance in Sewell, NJwww.kevinneeld.com “One day, do the close-grip bench press and wide-grip seated row—4 sets of 8–12 for each, increasing the weight each set. Days later, do the same with the barbell overhead press and chin-up. On two other days, do 10 sets of 10 push-ups. Reduce your rest periods by fi ve seconds each week. So, Week 1, 30 seconds; Week 2, 25 seconds, and so on. In Week 5, go for one set of max push-ups.”Jim Smith, Strength Coach in Elmira, NYDIESELSC.COM
