Max Pushup Challenge
Aug 17th, 2017 at 8:38pm
 
In a similar vein to the plank bending, grip strength and occasional bicep curling challenges I think it would be interesting to challenge the models to see how many pushups they can do in one set.

It's a neat test of strength and it would be awesome to see just how just how far some of these women can go. Is this something it'd be possible to see in the future?

Thanks.  Smiley

I have included a push up contest with guys with some of the shoots. Really it depends on when I am shooting a girl. A girl is who is competing will not want to do that now will they be able to do well.

I'd like to see this myself. It's a great upper body workout for overall conditioning.

Thanks for replying, but I can only recall a couple of pushup contest/max videos and they're all from a long time ago and clearly not taken too seriously. Or am I missing some?

Any thanks for the acknowledgement, just letting you know that I and some others evidently would appreciate some more of these types of videos in the future.

Again, I'd just like to give some feedback and say it's great to see some of these videos sneaking into the main site. The numbers are getting better too, 40 is no easy feat! Now all it needs is a little more competitiveness like with the grip strength and plank challenges. Tell future girls something like 40 is the number to beat so they've got something to fight towards.  Smiley

Also as a side note if possible can you get Marci Michalski to do this challenge? I saw the video from last year where she does pushups on the sidewalk and she bangs out 50+ no sweat! It'd be awesome to see how many she can do to failure.

But yeah, I really appreciate that you guys are even making these videos so please keep 'em coming!

Argghh! Again, many thanks for still making these videos but it was frustrating to see you stop Kerrin Phillips at 30 reps. It finally seemed as if a girl was taking it seriously and willing to push herself then you cut her off! Even she seemed a little disappointed!

If you continue making these can you please try to refrain from actually interjecting? It'd be like telling a model to give up at bending 20 planks; most fit girls will be able to do 20+ pushups in the same way most can bend 20 planks so it's annoying to see an effort limited in this way.

I'm sure the others who expressed interest in this challenge would agree, and I understand you don't want the models, or they themselves don't want, to exert themselves to the point of injury but I don't think it's in any way comparable to many of the intense armwrestling matches you've had where the strain is much more apparent. Even in many of the plank bending challenges the girls are pushing themselves really hard and it's usually up to them if they want to call it quits so I don't see why more of that attitude can't be applied to this. It just seems unfair to call the challenge to a halt if the model is clearly willing to give it a go and takes away from the fun. And if it's simply down to the fact you think the video is getting boring then I can guarantee the the type of customers viewing these clips won't mind watching a shit ton of pushups if the girl is capable of that.  Smiley

EDIT: Okay, upon rewatch it isn't necessarily called to a halt but it certainly seems as though you're encouraging her to wrap it up after 20 rather than the encouragement to go for more as in the other types of challenges. When she gets to 30 that easily she could be aiming for 50!  Wink
