I plan to post my progress here. Basically you do a pre-test and based on the results you follow a plan to be able to complete 200 squats or 100 push ups or 200 sit-ups in 6 weeks. If you want to join me please post your results below.

I did the pre-test today and my results were good for sit-ups and squats and ok for push ups. I have been working on all of them for a while as a part of my regular workouts so if I did better than you don’t despair.

Initial Test Results
Pushups 20
