Strength Training

Wednesday, July 24, 2013

I'm going to go ahead and pat myself on the back.

This morning I found three applications for my cell phone made by a company named RITTR LABS. The applications are titled simply: Sit Ups, Push Ups, and Squats. They are "personal trainer" applications that are designed to help you go from being a weakling to (hopefully) being able to do 50, 75, 100, or even 125 push ups in a row!

Here's how it worked for me:

I opened up the Push Ups application and it asks me how many push ups I would like to be able to do in a row. Not wanting to beef up and look manly, I chose the lowest range of 50 push ups. The application then prompted me to do as many as I could in a row NOW before I felt fatigued. I was able to do 4. It also asks if you are male or female. It took my reading and set it up so that I would have to do four sets of push ups - 3, 3, 5, and 3 repetitions. When you finish one set, you hit "Done" and it ticks down 45 seconds of a rest period. A whistle blows, and you continue. At the end of all four sets, the application asks you if the workout was "Just Right," "Too Easy," or "Too Hard." I sad it was "Just Right" and now tomorrows workout reads four sets of 4, 3, 5, and 5 reps.

I went through all three applications and did the workouts and am really looking forward to seeing the results. They're quick and easy to use applications and if you're having a difficult time finding it in you to workout on any given day, these are so simple that there's really just no excuse not to do them.

I highly recommend!
