RE: hundredpushups
The humble pushup is one the oldest exercises in the realm of physical culture. Pushups were the foundation for the early culturists including Earl Leiderman, Charles Atlas, Jack Lalanne and others. Herschel Walker never trained with weights and his mainstay was the pushup. Today, at age 48 he does 1500 pushups A DAY!

Look up the actor Woody Strode. You may remember him from the original Spartacus and Sergeant Rutledge movies. The Nazi film maker Riefenstahl thought he was the most perfectly developed man and wanted to film/photograph him. He trained exclusively with body weight exercises and did over 1000 pushups a day.

Clint Eastwood, Charles Bronson, Tony Curtis, Kirk Douglas and many other actors used the pushup and bodyweight exercises as their core training method. Check out this guy doing the Tiger squat and pul ups. Search for Transformetrics. The forum wont let me post the link.

He is 59 years old and never trained with weights. He started the Charles Atlas program when he was 10 years old AND after having childhood polio. He can do 38 genuine pullups and routinely performs 1000+ pushups in a day. He can perform sets of deep handstand pushups on blocks. How many 20 year olds in great shape can do even one? The website also has a great forum and other interesting resources.

All I'm saying is that there are other ways to train besides weights. There is a lot of evidence that points to the pushup, all by itself, as capable of achieving great strength and muscularity. The man you see in the link would say to perform a wide variety of pushups (Atlas, Superman, Hindu, diamond etc...) so all your muscles are hit at different angles and strengthened equally.
