I've started a new challenge today. I'm trying to get to the point where I can do: 100 pushups, 200 squats, 200 crunches, and 100 dips. Whew! (By the way, I'm using this site & its related sites: www.pushupslogger.com
They don't have a 'dips' site, so I'll use the schedule for pushups. )
So, I did my initial 'exhaustion tests' today. Here are my numbers:
I have a long way to go, but I'm actually pretty happy with where I'm at! The sites have you do the exercises 3 times per week. I'll be doing Mon/Wed/Fri. I did well enough on most of the exercises to jump to week 3 of 6! I might reach most of my goals within a month!!
So, here's my Wed schedule:
pushups: 14/18/14/14/at least 20 (week 3)
squats: 19/24/19/19/at least 27 (week 3)
crunches: 21/27/21/21/at least 30 (week 3)
dips:10/12/7/7/at least 9 (week 1)
pushups: 20/25/15/15/at least 25
squats: 27/34/21/21/at least 34
crunches: 30/38/23/23/at least 38
dips: 10/12/8/8/at least 12
Oh, and today's workout?
Besides the evaluations on those 4 exercises, I also did some other additional ab work (for my own notes - 30 pocket pickers and 30 weaves with #3 weights), ran .6 miles with my daughter, rode a stationary bike for 3.3 miles, and did 15 mins on the stair machine - for 50 floors!!! That's so much better than I used to do. I was able to keep it on a '5' the entire time!
