Todays’ workout was a bear — The Challenge. Obviously design-based on Cross Fit, it is 16 sets of push up and pull ups (different varieties) done in 30 minutes. 16 sets of these heavy-move sets in 30 minutes is a real challenge and I was definitely having a hard time getting decent numbers by the end.
I will be redoing this “Challenge” every week for the next 12 so I will measure my progress throughout the 12 week. This week, in
– 8 rounds of push ups: I did 171 push ups, of which 39 were from my knees
– 8 rounds of pull ups: I did 78 pull ups, of which 38 were chair assisted
I finished with 5 suicide rounds (a pull up followed by 3 push ups
Overall, it felt pretty good, but hopeful my numbers will increase over time.
