Death, Taxes and Push-ups: Letters and Testimonials

November 11, 2008

I hope that your book is selling like hotcakes, as it is such practical plan for total fitness. I hope to see you soon, doing pushups on The Eiffel Tower, on The Great Wall of China, and overlooking The Grand Canyon, in your quest for a worldwide pushups revolution! I am doing great following the instructions in your book. I sometimes instead of doing the same number of reps in a certain amount of sets, do my routine pyramid style, that is gradually increasing and decreasing the reps. I can do 300 pushups a day fairly easily now, and I sometimes do them in ten sets of 30 reps, six sets of 50 reps, or pyramid style, doing reps of 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 50, 40, 30, 20, 10. It is fun to exercise this way for a little variety. Do you ever do your pushups this way? I keep telling everyone that on various message boards about your great book and program, and wish you continued success.

Best regards,

This book answered all my questions about Push-ups. The author has more experience then anyone I know about improving your Push-up routine. He takes you through his own journey of 25 plus years then develops you into a “Lean Mean Pushing Machine”. I’ve done push-ups for years but never like this. My strategy has completely changed in reaching my goals and I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to save time and money while getting into great shape. This just may be the last fitness book I’ll ever buy!

“Man vs. Machine”, May 3, 2008
By John Galinski (San Diego, CA)

I currently own both stationery and rotating push-up bars, but the problem is my palms and rotator cuffs are taking a beating. Both these types of bars are good for low repetitions anyway, and can’t be used for anyone who really wants to build muscle definition. Death, Taxes & Push-ups is the answer to understanding how to get to a 1000 push-ups a day or higher. The author is a real motivator due to his own personal stories. When it comes down to “Man vs. Machine” man wins every time! The traditional push-up is superior to anything else not to mention its portability. I totally recommend this book to all serious “PUSHERS”.

By Justin G. Stok

Looking for an alternative to waiting in line for every machine at the gym. This book has a keep it simple message that anyone can do. It is an easy read with a lot of information. I recommend the book to anyone that wants to get in shape and not spend a ton of money and time!

"The Push-up Revolution" April 30, 2008
Greg Jackson (Indianapolis, IN)

Count me in! I've joined the Push-up Revolution. This author has proven to me that doing push-ups is just as effective as using 10 different health club machines. The only thing I can say about Ted Skup is he is not your ordinary Jack of all Trades, but a Master of One, The Push-up. I'm telling all my friends to stop spending their money on useless exercise equipment and just use the formulas in this book to increase muscle size and strength. Saving time and money is good as long as it works. This works. I recommend this book to everyone!

The author is not only a push-up expert, he also knows his target audience. This book is perfect for the average person looking to get in shape without having to set aside time to get to the gym, buy expensive "home gyms," or get burned buying the latest fitness machine you really don't need. The author reminds us we are born with all we need to get in shape naturally. You can do push-ups anywhere! The author also explains how fun, simple and portable getting in shape can be. Stop wasting your time and money buying trendy junk and starting using the common sense approach to getting fit outlined in this book. It's not just a book about push-ups, it's an interesting personal story too. Don't miss out!

This just might be the coolest book on any one exercise I've ever read. Ted Skup's formulas for increasing Push-up repetitions are so simple that my daughter and I are doing them exclusively. Anyone who has done 10 million Push-ups has to know what they are talking about.

This pushup program really works. I have been following it since 9-28-08, and I am becoming more muscular, and my weight is stabilizing. I recommend Death Taxes And Pushups to everyone.

I love the comment in the book "it doesn't matter who gets there first, but who stays there the longest." This is now one of my mantras.

OldPusher said...

Wow! I did 10 sets of 50 pushups this morning, and I am have never felt stronger in my life! I am half way there to doing 1000 pushups a day! I never thought I could do this until reading Ted's book.

I tried various ways of doing the pushup program, and I can say from personal experience to just follow Ted's excellent progression method. I tried to "hurry up" my march to 1000 pushups a day, and Ted is so right as he says in his book to "stop and smell the roses". So I am doing now 20 sets of 25 reps or 500 pushups, I was trying to jump up to 10 sets of 50 reps a little too quickly. Just follow the excellent program and you will avoid injury and burnout.
