Getting started with the Pushup Challenge
This article won’t make much sense without some history. Fortunately, you can read that here.
This will be a simple step-by-step to get you down and logging some pushups. Congrats for taking on the challenge!
You’ll need an Airtable account. In the future there will be an official app with fancy design and all that, but for now, you are joining the MVP-Ultra-BETA version of the challenge. You could do the same thing in excel. But don’t, do it in Airtable — it’s way more fun! Sign up for an account here.
Clone a copy of the master “base.” It has a table for logging pushups and a table for defining what your target number is. There is also a table that acts as a reference for pushup variations, it’s not exhaustive and is stolen directly from the Greatist. Feel free to add some more, but as a word of caution, this list will be carried into the “real” app, so as your data is migrated in the future, only references to this list will be respected for the stats. Clone the base here.
Step 3 (for mobile users)
Start doing pushups!
Here’s some screenshots for helpful reference.
