There are 31,536,000 in every year, so how many would it take one man to do 1 million push-ups.

The best person to ask is probably Sgt. Enrique Trevino of the U.S. Marines.

Sgt. Trevino is attempting to do 1 million push-ups in 2012 and recently announced that at the year’s half way mark, he was right on schedule, having down about 500,000 push-ups so far.

The Marine is attempting this feat of strength and endurance to raise money for war veterans as part of the Wounded Warriors Project.

Wounded Warriors helps veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars adjust to life as civilians.

Trevino’s project, “1 Year 1 Million Push Ups”, has already raised $19,671 of his initial goal of $20,000.

He recently told Miami’s WTVJ-TV, ‘People who are suffering from PTSD (port-traumatic stress disorder). Those are scars that are not seen, but people don’t notice every day. I’m just trying to bring awareness to those veterans who’re transitioning into civilian life, and just make sure they’re never forgotten.’

Though he has nearly reached the $20,000 goal, Sgt. Trevino said, ‘…If we can do more than that, which I know we can, I’m all for it.’

In order to reach the 1 million push-up goal, Sgt. Trevino has to do 2,732 per day.
