Wasn’t in high rep sets at the end. 5 after 5 after 5, by the end of the day. On the upside it basically doubled my performance after a week of soreness. I went from 25 to 50 max after that day and a week of rest.
I should totally do that again. Not exactly a tough exercise after some consistency and progression madness, but my discipline is fluttering at best
I’d like to see how people are doing their press ups. I know of people that say doing 30 push ups is easy. They then show me and all I see is pretty much someone bobbing their head up and down with minimum arm movement. It’s really cringe-worthy.
This morning I did my pressups much slower and could only manage 15 in row, but I felt like each pressup gave much more of a workout. I then did 15 slow lifts of the coffee table (I don’t own weights so I improvise), then 10 more slow pressups, 10 more slow coffee table lifts, then 7 more slow pressups and finally 7 coffee table lifts.
So, next time I will try to squeeze out an extra one each time, make it 16, 11, 8. That’s what it’s all about, trying to push a little bit further each time.
I’m certainly not a pro bodybuilder or anything. Just spending a few minutes in the morning doing a few exercises while watching breakfast news. On a side note, Sky’s Sarah-Jane or Good Morning Britain’s Susanna Reid? Who do you prefer to have your breakfast with? Don’t say Bill Turnbull.
