And the winner is...

Steve Lee has regained his title as the El Cubano Gordo champ.

After 120 days of working out (and running around with 5 kids) Steve pumped out 38 to-the-floor push ups and lost 20 pounds, generating 15.34 El Cubano Gordo points. His perseverance is a guide post and inspiration to all aspiring losers like us.

We should also raise our glasses to the other participants who lost a few and trained to push up perfection. Chris Brand lost 7 pounds and pumped out an amazing 58 push ups for a combined 12.77 El Cubano Gordo points. Angelique edged out Annie and came in third place, showing that even skinny people can place in the El Cubano Gordo contest. Angelique lost 3.2% of her body weight and completed 53 push ups.

Annie came in fourth after losing 6 pounds and completing 42 push ups. Pete Meyers, last year's winner, rounded out the top 5 with a 2 pound weight loss and 57 push ups (although we lack video evidence to support the feat).

Honorable mentions go out to Niza who lost 6 pounds and cranked out 12 push ups and to the other 8 contestants who didn't gain weight. While we didn't hit our goal numbers, the contest helped those of us on the pudgier side to avoid gaining even more.

I myself am already nostalgic for ECG3 and am ramping up my efforts to get fit. Until ECG4, stay healthy and congrats to everyone.
