The One Thousands

Simple, but effective: To complete the One Thousands feat, you must do 1,000 situps and 1,000 pushups over the 33 days of the challenge. Two things to point out: First, your situps may be of whatever variety you choose, i.e. crunches, windshield wipers, regular old situps, etc. Also, your pushups may be full pushups, and/or pushups from the knee, depending on your proficiency. You may also choose a substitute exercise for the pushups, though it must be of equivalent difficulty and simplicity. Second point: Please note that 1,000 is just about 30 per day of each. Piece of cake.

I can do this. It'll be a killer at first, but I know I can do it.

Hah. This is like 2-3 pilates classes, maybe less. 3x15 quickly adds up, not to mention the ab blast series at equinox or whatnot.

I was going to do 1000 push ups in a week for my DYI feat. :-(  I'll come up with something else.

Need to thank Brooklyn Bridge Bootcamp for this one otherwise it would never have gotten done.

ynkegrl8's picture

I do these in classes EVERY day.....oy vay. 

michlny's picture

250 situps yesterday afternoon; various styles.  1/2 way on these. 

I need to start on the pushups.

@HereNow's picture

i think i am going to save all these up for the last day of the challenge . . .

body electric's picture

Finished push-ups today - finished sit-ups on the 21st. 

swell1's picture

The  situps were the easy part... the hard part was the pushups.. finally finished this morning.

FrogOmnibus's picture

HATED this challenge ... but so glad that I did this one.

@certainDISASTER's picture

Done and done.

This was a great challenge.

natejgray's picture

would have completed this the first week if i didn't get hurt.

killercadoogan's picture

easy...esp. if you're taking bootcamp class with ariane hundt: 250 push-ups per 60-minute class!!!

msh258's picture

Another 250 sit ups this evening at Crunch USQ.  250 to go.

30 push ups this morning.

I've done a lot more, I just need to log them.

@HereNow's picture




i feel like a superhero :)

sandyliz's picture

1,000 situps done today at Crunch, final batch of 250 this lunchtime.

I've got to add up the push-ups to see what I need to complete.

130 today though.

@HereNow's picture

1000 sit-ups about 800 push-ups.

I'm going to try to finish this feat today by intermittently doing blocks of 20 to 50 push-ups.

Wish me luck.


@HereNow's picture

I feel pretty tough now.

Llaves's picture

now if only those pushups looked at all pretty.  Still a ways to go in terms of form on this one...

Butwhatifido's picture

150 push-ups on Sunday, 50 on Monday.

I'm done.

@HereNow's picture

had the situps finished awhile ago, finished the pushups yesterday. yay me!

emilyg's picture

about 850 of my pushups were girly knee pushups.  my quest is to make them all full pushups next time this feat appears!

babarbanel's picture

I didn't realize that tomorrow is the end of the challenge.  I did 180 today.  Does that mean I can do that more often?!

runningrudy's picture

SO HAPPY I did this one!!!!  If I keep these going my arms and abs will be awesome for my wedding in July :-)  

Somehow wound up doing exactly 1,020 of each one.  Weird.  But good. :-)

yeahredgymnast's picture

complete!  ended up doing 1020 pushups and 2200 situps/crunches! 

lurtle's picture

Done! I added in 50 situps & 50 pushups a day, and resolved not to cheat & count those I did in the course of a class or workout video. I'm going to try & keep this one up beyond the challenge - it's just a few minutes a day & I love that there's measurable progress - I'm going to dial it up to 60 a day, in fact!

tigertailamy's picture

Would not have done this w/o seeing how y'all were taking it on. Thanks for the inspiration!
