Anyway,this year I have set about following it as part of my exercise regime and have definitely noticed a big improvement in my press-up ability and upper body physique.
I'm about half-way through one of the advanced training schedules and am pretty sceptical about the "100 press ups in 7 weeks claim" unless you were already amazingly fit and a lot younger (I'm pretty fit for a 51-y-old by way of reference). However, I feel that the regime will get me there eventually... perhaps 7 months in my case, haha.
If you were to think of it as "a great press-up training programme that gets you much fitter, improves your physique and enables you to do more and more of them if you stick with it" then its good value and is definitely delivering this for me, so I am happy with the purchase and recommend it to anyone who is not expecting a magic wand solution to low chest muscle strength.
Oh, by the way, it is probably worth saying that before I started with the book I absolutely detested press ups... every single one. Now I only moderately dislike the first 20... although I still detest the ones after this. I am sure this change of attitude is a reflection of how my strength has improved with the regime.
Quite frankly, I think there is actually less info in the book. The extras that the webite refer to are simply trivia and historical facts about other people's press-up records. Nothing in the book provided extra training tips, or advice on form, that I could use. Not only that, the sets of press-ups required to complete each training session are completely different in the book to the ones published on the website, so to continue with the program I was already on I would have to ignore the information in the book I just paid for!
I have switched to the sets planned out in the book, and I am now making slow progress again, but I don't think it's the book that actually helped me. If you haven't lost money on this product already, I would suggest you steer clear and use the free online version.
I couldn't do a single press up when I bought this book. I had to start by facing the wall and pushing myself away from the wall while standing upright. Gradually I was able to do push ups using a window cill. Then I did them from my knees on the floor and finally I was able to start the programme properly.
When I first started I didn't read the book properly and I didn't warm up. This was ok to start with, but as I loaded up my arms I started to get problems. Months later I sat down and read the book properly. I now warm up as the book says and stretch afterwards as the book says and I've had no problems at all.
This morning, in the middle of week 5 of the programme, after 5 sets of pushups, I've just done 31 consecutive push ups, which is exactly on target.
You can understand from my story why I might have doubts about my ability to complete the programme. I look at the number of push ups it says to do next and part of me says "you can't do that". I then get down and do them just like the programme says - and I can! Today's total was 103.
Face your fears and doubts and do it anyway. I am so glad I bought this book.
I started on the advanced after scoring 41 in the initial test (26 to get into the Advanced, so not really that advanced), 6 weeks later I was knocking on the door to 100. By week 7 I was comfortably doing a 100 set. (121 was my best effort).
Look, if you are miles over weight or can't manage one press up, lets face it you wont do it in 7 weeks, it will however give you a great start and you can see your stats improve as you write them down in the record provided on the back pages.
If you religiously stick to the program and follow the SIMPLE guidance, you WILL see an improvement in strength and arm and shoulder definition. unless you are 100% abmormal!!!
I can honestly say I went from being able to just about manage one push up from the start of the week to five a few days later. I'm aiming for the hundred teehee.
The book does contain more information than the website.
My body strength is already better, as is my posture and confidence.
