You’ve probably heard of those hundred pushup programs that aim to get you to be able to do one hundred pushups in six weeks regardless of your current capabilities. It’s a simple three day a week workout of just about five minutes per workout to help increase your strength to get to your goal. This same concept has been carried over to situps, squats and dips as well. These programs won’t enable someone who can do five pushups to do one hundred in five weeks but they will work for all levels to help increase your strength for these specific exercises, plus you can do it all at home and thanks to Herm and 6 Week Trainer you can do it for free. Here’s his app description:
6 Week Training an easy to follow to program to help you reach your goal in the following exercises:
Two Hundred Situps,
Two Hundred Squats and
Hundred Fifty Dips.
After taking the initial test for each of the exercises the program will put you in the appropriate workout level and keep track of your workout.
After week two, four and five there is an Exhaustion Test that will determine which level of the program is right for you in the following week.
You can always monitor your progress by looking though the logs and charts available.

Four Apps in One and best of all it’s ALL FREE.
I have personally tried the apps that are currently in Marketplace as well as Herm’s app and his has a few advantages. Not only is it free, and it’s one app instead of four but it also includes the exhaustion tests to see if you are on pace to hit your goals. That’s important because otherwise the numbers just get out of hand and it becomes frustrating but with this you know you need to repeat prior workouts before proceeding. Overall it’s a great app and even if you’re doing it without such ambitious goals it’s still a great program and great app to get you started.
You can find it in Marketplace under Health & Fitness.
