100 Push-ups (and 50 Pull-ups): Week 7

Repeating the Week 5 workouts turned out great as I felt much stronger and was able to dramatically increase the quality of my movements. By giving myself some extra time I turned a corner mentally (spiritually?) and physicallyand am starting to believe that I may just do 100 push-ups after all.

In addition to push-ups, I have also discovered that my ability to do dips has dramatically increased. Without even trying, I was able to knock out 30 quality dips in a row, a number that I have never before been able to achieve.

A sense of ease is also starting to show up in the pull-up workouts. The first 10 in any set almost feels effortless and I am looking forward to expanding that feeling into higher repetition ranges.

Push-up Workout 1 (in reps): 40, 50, 25, 25, max set (minimum of 50). 60s rest between sets.

Push-up Workout 2: 20, 20, 23, 23, 20, 20, 18, 18, max set (minimum of 53). 45s rest between sets.

Push-up Workout 3: 22, 22, 30, 30, 25, 25, 18, 18, max set (minimum 55). 45s rest between
sets.
