RE: hundredpushups
100 push ups was a requirement of a black belt grading I did a while back. You could "rest" on straight arms between reps, but if you let your weight fall, you fail instantly. Obviously I had done a lot of them in training, but 100 straight is still a challenge to anyone. A couple of tips that can make it much easier:

1. Spread your legs - Distributing your weight over 3 points rather than 2 lightens the load considerably, the further you spread them, the easier they get. But don't expect an instructor/trainer to tolerate you spreading them too far. Just as far as you think you can get away with.
2. Alternate hand positions - I find on my knuckles the easiest since that's how I've been required to do them, but that's very heavy on the triceps. When they get tired, you can change the focus to your chest (wide grip) or shoulders (diamond grip). Just mix them up...without letting your weight drop.

They'll give you a wicked pump, but don't expect to put on any mass by doing this.
