100 Pushups, 100 Squats, 100 Pullups

For April's challenge, I decided on something somewhat simple. I want to stick to a basic daily routine of doing 100 pushups, 100 squats, and 100 pullups.

The pushups are done in a kind of wierd scheme: 40, 20, 20, 20 (I do as many pushups as I can in the first set, then divide the remaining number by 3); my personal best is somewhere in the 60s for pushups, but I never went for the full 100 after that.

The first few days of squats has been 4 sets of 25 between the sets of pushups. My personal best for this was 4 sets of 75 when I did the Murph workout (without the 20 lb vest) last Memorial Day.

So far, the only problem has been the pull ups. I can get about 3 sets of 10 in pretty easily in one sitting, but my form quickly degrades after that and my sets quickly drop to something like 8, 5, 3, 2, 2, 1... So far, my plan for getting in the 100 pullups is to do 1-2 sets of 10 every time I go into my room (the pullup bar is on the door frame of my master bathroom).

I don't know what to really expect from this challenge, but my unresearched goal is to do 100 pushups in one set, 100 squats in one set, and 5 sets of 20 for pull ups (in one sitting, not spread out through the day like it is now).
