RogueLibrarian Posted August 5, 2019 Report Share Posted August 5, 2019 I'm dedicating this month's challenge to one of my all-time favorite Star Wars characters, Chirrut Imwe (played by my #1 all-time favorite Hong Kong actor and all-around badass, Donnie Yen). I came back from vacation and immediately got sick for a week, so I have gotten out of step with my usual fitness routine. We did a lot of walking in Thailand (and even some actual hiking, and met up with a NF friend in Hong Kong) while on vacation, but no actual workouts to speak of. I've been back to a couple of kickboxing classes in the last week and survived (and even nicely outlasted a noob on Saturday). One thing I have been working on is push-ups. For the last month or two I've been doing 30 push-ups per day, started with 3 sets of 10 and then went to 2 sets of 15, and now I'm doing 3 sets of 15 every day. I've missed a very few days, but for pretty good reasons -- like I was on planes and in airports for literally 24 hours at a go, or I was sick and just crashed out and let myself rest all day. I'm tracking daily with Habitbull and it's a pretty respectable streak. They are getting easier and I think I can see a difference in my upper body starting to show. So. All that said, this is going to be a pretty minimal challenge (again) as I just try to firm my habits back up. 3 workouts per week. Usually, this is 2 karate classes and a kickboxing class. 45 push-ups every day, 3 sets of 15. Don't eat like an asshole. 1 Quote "We can be heroes" Link to comment
