100 Push-ups (and 50 Pull-ups): Week 3

Week 2 of the hundredpushups.com program is when "shit got real". The repetition ranges pushed me right up to the edge of my previous max of 45 push-ups and I realized that I'm going to have to develop a strategy if I want to be able to mentally conquer the vast bleakness of 100 push-ups in a row.

That said, I DID complete the workouts, and so can you!


Week 2 Workouts:

Push-up workout 1 (in reps): 21, 25, 21, 21, max set (minimum of 32 reps). 60s rest between sets.

Push-up workout 2: 25, 29, 25, 25, max set (minimum of 36 reps). 90s rest between sets.

Push-up workout 3: 29, 33, 39, 39, max set (minimum of 40 reps). 120s rest between sets.


The Fiftypullups.com workout plan is still pretty easy, but I expect that to change soon. Here are the rep ranges for week 2...

Pull-up workout 1: 9, 8, 7, 6, 6. 90s rest between sets.

Pull-up workout 2: 8, 9, 8, 7, 5. 90s rest between sets.

Pull-up workout 3: 9, 9, 8, 6, 6. 90s rest between sets.
