I've started doing the 100 press-up thing recently, and have decided to try and do the 200 sit-ups and 200 squat training programmes at the same time, but I was just wandering if its wise/doable?
Cos by doing them all, it'll improve the body parts that I want to improve, but will it be too much for my body? It doesn't so far, but I'm only on the first week, so I don't know how it'll be further down the line?

I dunno, what do you guys think?

It will develop very little strength and/or muscle size, the emphasis of the training is on endurance, there's nothing to worry about but there are better ways of spending your time (ie; HIIT, weight training, etc).

All I really want it for is toning though.. So do you think it's okay for that? Or are there still better ways of toning?

First you need to understand what 'toning' is. Toning is a mixture of losing fat and/or building muscle. What's the best way of achieving that? A good diet and some decent exercise (weights and HIIT should be high on your list, not 1000s of pushups, situps, bodyweight squats, etc).

a great way of putting on muscle that's funner than the gym, at least for me, is bouldering (climbing but not very high, just managing to get up the wall using puzzles, strength in the core, the tendents, and the upper body in general).

You don't need a harness, and there are crash pads below you. If you can get to a climbing wall, it could be a nice way to start building muscle (mainly as strength).

1. Buy the book Infinite Intensity by Ross Enamait
2. Buy a pair of adjustable dumbbells
3. Buy a chin-up bar
4. Success!

Adjustable dumbbells and a chin-up bar are cheap. Those, combined with a good book, will allow you to get a decent all-over workout.
