Muir Makes Gainz Part 2


Muir

Recommended Posts

Happy December all! Well, it's close enough hehe. :P

 

Carrying on from the November challenge, I'm keeping it simple. My goals are to amass gains by doing the 20 pull up challenge and the 100 push up challenge. Below is the itinerary for the next few weeks. As last time, everyone is welcome to join in!

 

Week 0: Exhaustion Test. Do as many pull ups (either unassisted or assisted) as you can do in one set. Record this number. Do the same for push ups - as many as you can manage in one set. Push ups can be incline, on your knees, or full plank style, whichever you are able to do.

Week 1: Start with week 4 of the challenges. (I've decided to stick with "easy" game mode to ensure that I'm having fun. "Easy" mode is the far left side column.)

Week 2: Go through week 5.

Week 3: Do week 6.

Week 4: Final exhaustion test.

 

Here are my previous exhaustion test results from last month:

 

Pull Ups: Week 0 - 10 assisted. Week 2 - 1 unassisted, 17 assisted.

Push Ups: Week 0 - 10 full plank style. Week 2 - 23 full plank style.

 

In addition to the pull up and push up challenges, each week I'm going to be buying the ingredients for two recipes from the Nerd Fitness Academy "cookbook" and cooking them. My goal here is to eventually cook all of the recipes, putting the ones that I like into a bookmark folder for future access.

Side note, I keep reading one of your challenge links in your sig as "Cosmic Hitler".  This has my brain just a-running with imagined space Nazis. 

 

Carry on.

You'd think with all the problems in this world, there'd be more answers. It's not fair...
...But that's the way things are. The choice is yours."

Yay!

 

---------------------

 

I haven't done the exhaustion tests today because I had a job interview today and I'm going out tonight to see Fantastic Beasts. They will get done before the end of the week though.

 

The interview is for a position at a tea and coffee stand at Kirkgate Market in Leeds. It's owned and run by some really nice people. It only pays minimum wage and will most likely only be part time, but it's a job and I'll be better off financially working than not.

I had trouble keeping up last challenge.  I'm liking the progress you made on pushups and pullups.  I'll cheer for you this time around.
