Well, this workout plan I’m doing with Bradshaw and a few others is based around six weeks of exercise, three times a week, with the goal of getting you to the level where you can do 100 consecutive push ups, 200 sit ups, and 200 squats.. I’m doing M/W/F workouts, so that’s when these check-in posts will be.
Each workout is 5 sets of reps with 60 seconds rest in between… for example, today the schedule told me I had to do 14 pushups, rest, 19, rest, 14, rest, 14, rest, and then max myself out (at least 19).
Today my numbers were as follows:
Push-ups: 80 total (19 max)…I BARELY eeked out what I was supposed to do. I have a feeling I will most definitely be repeating this week 3 workout next week.
Sit-ups: 199 total (85 max)…These were pretty easy for me Monday…NOT so today. My upper abs hurt, yes, but also my lower ones. Not sure if that’s from these sit-ups or from the core work during the push-ups. Either way…it’s working out something. 🙂
Squats: 173 total (70 max)… I was sore for these, but it actually felt good to stretch out those muscles again. My max number was lower, but I think that’s cuz I pushed myself all out on Monday so it was pretty painful today. Live and learn!
So there’s my check-in for the day. Remember, if you want to join in, just click on the links below and follow their plan based on your level each week!
