Doing 100 pushups in a row is no joke.

 

Most I've been able to get is like 48...  the burn gets to me.

 

I usually do 5 sets of 20 supersetted with some abs at the end of chest day.

 

 

Yeah I'm a little concerned that it has me doing the 100 in just over two weeks from now.  I'm just startng week 5 of the program and this is what the last workout looked like.

 

 

                         Week  Day     Total reps                      5 sets

Feb 23, 2014       4        3            132                    24,28,22,24,34        

 

 

Its crazy how it has you doing the most push ups on the last set!  Makes it very tough.

Happy international chest day!

 

I'm doing legs today.  I like doing leg day on ICD so I can avoid the crowd at the benches.  hopefully the squat racks won't be filled with curlbros.

I did legs yesterday and there was a guy I know working out in there doing curls in the squat rack...  I didn't say anything to him... but thought about it...

 

Not doing chest today either... Mondays are nuts right now...

There are a lot of them but this is the one I ended up with.  This one lets you choose begingger - intermediate- or advanced to start the program.  I was in decent shape to start with so I choose intermediate.

I could do 100 in a row up until a few years ago. I guess not being able to do it now coincides with me leaving active duty military life.

I remember when I first joined, I struggled to get over 45-50. All I did to improve was set my hourly beep on my wrist watch and did 25 on the hour, every hour. In a few months I was maxing my PT tests. Not long after, I was hitting 100.

I did chest today, but then again I went at like 10:45, so there wasn't a lot of traffic.  I also started doing legs three days a week.  The girlfriend likes to pick on my bird legs, so I'm paying extra attention to them.  My body chemistry just does not produce weight in my legs, so they are relatively smaller.  Then again, I'm not a big guy to begin with.  Got some good chest work in, as well as leg presses, calves, and deadlifts.  I'll probably do some squats on Wednesday, along with more calves, and save my second set of deadlifts for Friday, when I do more legs . . .  Right now I'm more about cardio, so I'm doing supersets with lighter weights.  I'll probably slow it down next week, though, and really concentrate on slower reps with more resistance.

 

Cheers, y'all.

I was right, gym was worse than ever.

So many idiots. I wouldn't mind if most of them had any gym etiquette at all...

The lack of gym etiquette is astounding. Put things back where it goes, clean stuff after you sweat on it, don't sit on a bench texting, and put the fuging towels to wipe down equipment in the basket.
