elefevers Posted January 2, 2013 Report Share Posted January 2, 2013 Taking a break from the challenges as I'm just getting back into the game of fitness and have lost ALL of my progress plus some. Just going to do some bodyweight work to get a little conditioning in :]. My plan is to combine the 100 push up and 20 pull ups programs. I will do these on Monday Wednesday Fridays. In addition Tuesday and Thursday I will be doing lower body, body weight workouts: Squats, walking lunges, and jump steps (pretty much modified from the advanced body weight workout). I still haven't figured out how I want to include bicep exercises. Ideally I would like to use chin-ups but I don't want to over exert my pull muscles when doing the 20 pull up program. I'll figure it out though! I'll probably use this as kind of a personal journal as well -- lots of things going on in my life! So I did my initial tests for perfect form push ups and sit ups Pull ups - Perfect form was measured as coming all the way down until elbows were locked and coming back all the way up. I did this to ensure that each pull up was the same as the last -- no variation in heights. I did 8 - This puts me in the middle column of the program Push ups - I did these very slowly ensuring my chest tapped the ground each time while looking straight forward. I managed 20 - This puts me in the 3rd column of the program I'll start the actual programs tomorrow! Quote â€œObstacles are things a person sees when he takes his eyes off his goal.â€ - E.
