Week Four is done and the theme to 100 Push Up and 200 Squat Challenge is:
If I Wasn’t So Competitive I Would Have Stopped Because I’m Sick And Tired Of Being So Bleeping Sore
Between running sprints and weighted squats — for the record I forgot to include the weight of the bar when I was figuring out what weights I was using for squats so I’m actually doing 25 pounds and not 20 – I am sore ALL THE TIME. Although now that I’m doing all of this work my husband decided to up the ante and has started doing sprints on a stationary bike which is now making this uber-competitive and while I fully encourage him as his leg heals from his hockey mishap back in December, really I want to crush him.
Sorry honey, I love you but you know it’s true.
Week Four: Push Ups:
Day 1: Max 17 for a total of 64
Day 2: Max 20 for a total of 74
Day 3: Max 22 for a total of 82
I also did my Week 4 re-test which was good but not good. Good because I’m now able to do 25 push ups, not good because it means I have to redo Week 4 because according to the program I should be able to do 31 to 35 minimum. But for now I will go against my typical mindset and focus on what I am able to do and not what I’m unable to do because four weeks ago I could only do five push ups. So in terms of improvement – yay me. *rolls eyes*
Week Four: Weighted Squats:
Day 1: Max 20 for a total of 67
Day 2: Max 25 for a total of 80
Day 3: Max 30 for a total of 91
Once I’m done with this session of the 200 squats I’ll be moving on to this.
How was your week?
