Before Running?

Could work this back into schedule, adding in push ups before going out for runs.



Exercise Routine

Consider adding another workout during the week consisting of just push ups.



Note

When including push ups in arm workouts, add about twelve per set for the time being.



Reminder

Remember to include push ups in usual arm workout (can add to sets).



Idea

End my normal weight training arm workouts with push ups.



Exhaustion Test

Results: 29 consecutive push ups.

Looks like I’ll be reiterating week 4, but this time advancing to column 3. x]



Week 4, Day 3

Intended sets: 16, 18, 13, 13, 20 (min.).

Completed sets: 16, 18, 13, 13, 21 (max).

I did this day again. Last week I did the exhaustion test and wasn’t satisfied. I also didn’t do enough push ups to be able to move onto the following week. I’m not sure if I had bad form, but I will do the exhaustion test again next time and pay more attention to form. The results will then be the crux for the decision of which group/week/day etc. to move to next.



Week 4, Day 3

Intended sets: 16, 18, 13, 13, 20 (min.).

Completed sets: 16, 18, 13, 13, 22 (max).

Total: 82.



Week 4, Day 2 (Repeated)

I really need to stop missing days with this. I again missed a whole week. I will try do this more consistently from now on. I decided to do week 4, day 2 again. Viz.:

Intended sets: 14, 16, 12, 12, 18 (min.).

Completed sets: 14, 16, 12, 12, 24 (max).

Total: 78.

I was also inspired by CJ’s results for the “exhaustion test”. When I get up to a total of 100 push ups from an amalgamation of all the sets I’m doing in one day, I will do the same exhaustion test.

Some quixotic-and-currently-irrelevent thoughts are that I would like to continue working on muscle endurance like this at least for this whole year. Would be nice to get up to as many as 200 push ups, but that is rather out of sight ATM :P. Better not get too far ahead of myself, eh?!



Week 4, Day 2

Intended sets: 14, 16, 12, 12, 18.

Completed sets: 14, 16, 12, 12, 20 (max).

Total: 74.
