    I got to week 3 and then got sick and stopped, so if I continue, I’ll have to start all over again. I think I did weeks 2 and 3 twice each.

    I can get to about 30 but then I can’t push myself back up! What a good challenge though… I’m going to work to get to 100 a day so I can have smokin’ arms for my dress 🙂

    I also use a band to work on my arms/shoulders/chest. There are tons of band programs available & man do they work. The resistance is killer & in 2 months I’ve seen a great improvement with toning.

    Bands won’t give you bulging guns, just a slimmer, firmer looking arm! 🙂

    Keep pushing ladies!

    Uck, I used to be able to do a bunch of push ups when I was in ROTC. I now officially HATE them!

    I find planks to be really good. Not only do I slim up my arms (and i tend to get shoulder bulk when i do push ups, NOT pretty on me), but it’s good for my core too. I just go longer and longer and longer. A whole commercial break is my goal

    I did it! I was so surprised because I consider myself fairly weak, especially upper body. I had to do week 4 a couple times and week 5 probably four times, but now I can do 100. I showed my fiance and he was so impressed he took me out to celebrate.

    I am curious about the results – ie did you notice major changes to the look of your arms?!  I am about to start.

    I’ve just started, and it’s rocky and slow going, but it’s going…

    I did up to week 3 and it was pretty hard.  I just stopped doing it cause I just forgot plus been busy with stuff. I’ve been doing push ups for about year, on and off and I get good results right away. Even right now when I’m not doing them, my arms still look good.  I’ll probably try again when I’m not so busy.  100 is a lot!!

    @Miss Burgundy: I believe you can get a resistance band at any major retailer like target, walmart, etc in the sports section. There are different colors w/ different resistance- I’d suggest a medium resistance for some sleek results. Also make sure you get a band that has handles you can grip!! There are a lot of pilates resistance bands floating around & they are not good if you’re working on upper body exercises!

    I travel a lot & I use my band during layovers… if anyone ever see’s a crazy brunette doing lunges up & down the lounge w/ a resistance band give me a wave! lol oh and I once brought a 5lb kettle ball in my carry-on, boy did the security guards have fun with me :S
