Day 2 was 14, 16, 12, 12, 17 was pretty harsh on me, but a challenge no less.
Day 3 was pretty brutal on me, especially counting on the fact that well… I had a brutal day at work. It was 16, 17, 14, 14, 20. By the max out at 20, my arms felt like jelly… I was finished. I plan to take a max out test today and test my progress until I can’t push anymore. It will feel rewarding to have 1 day’s worth of rest before Week 3 is in full swing.
Set: 14, 14, 10, 10, max of 15
I have simply decided to do the Level 3 sets from this point forward. I have felt massive improvements over my form from Week 1. The posture and form are far better now than ever in my life. I hope to push the bar further and progress even harder!

I took on the Level 3 set (11, 15, 9, 9, min 13) and it was a killer. My arms and chest are officially dead and exhausted out. I also feel ready for the weekend as it will be a nice 2 day reprieve until I begin again Monday with the Week 2 set.
I decided to up the ante a bit, because my Day 1 Max was 8 when the minimal was 5. So today, I took the Level 3 workout of 10, 12, 8, 8, and maxed out at 12 (12, being the minimal for a max-out). The initial10 and 12 weren’t too bad… but by the sets of 8 and the max-out, that was brutal. I could feel muscle fiber getting exhausted which is good! Hopefully day 3 won’t be bad and with a weekend to relax a bit, it should be good.
For all those who are regular subscribers to Zero’s blog, he’s recently posted a new entry. He intends to perform the seemingly impossible One Hundred Push-Ups within six weeks. For the keen eyed, he’s also issued the challenge to me. I’m not one to post for the world all about my private life, but for the purposes of physical health, I accept the challenge. My initial test is embarrassing but honesty is paramount. My count is 2. I’m not over weight nor am i as scrawny as i make myself out to be, but I do feel as though a back story is necessary.
