Do we need to do anything other than express an interest on this thread?


Nope, just follow the instructions on the site and post your results and periodically(daily/weekly) how your getting on. If you don't post for a while expect a hagglin pm :twisted: Hopefully we won't be a million miles away from each other and can progress en masse :)

It's an achievement to hit the magic 100. I've been weight training quite a lot over the last 2 1/2 yrs and it's something me and my gym partner set as a goal, and conquered.

Just don't get carried away like we did, and try to go it one armed. We got to 60 on one arm and 60 on the other (without stopping) before decided enough was enough!

Good luck everyone :)

I did this last year. Was going great guns then our baby happened. Stick to the plan and don't be afraid to do a week over. It works really well.
