do 100 push ups (read all 11 entries…)
Week 3 Days 1 & 2

Day 1: rest 60 seconds between each
set 1 – 12
set 2 – 17
set 3 – 13
set 4 – 5!
set 5 – 12

After the third set I had to rest 2 minutes, and before the last set, 4 minutes! Very disappointed by that fourth set.

Day 2: rest 90 seconds between each
set 1 – 10
set 2 – 12
set 3 – 8
set 4 – 8
set 5 – 12

Down to Track 1 because of Tuesday’s poor performance. Am I progressing, or regressing? :\

Progressing!

You are doing more push ups than you were when you started out. When I was researching about exercise for my physiotherapy, I read that the act of exercise itself doesn’t build muscles. Exercise breaks muscles down, and rest allows them to recover and grow stronger than they were before.

It makes sense to me that you will have a “dip” every now and then while your muscles build up – it is a balance between stress and recovery, or breaking down and building up again. Your body will be fatigued between challenges, but you’ve definitely moved forward overall.
