I am heading out of town for a week starting tomorrow so last night I got some work in at home.

I did my first normal mode attempt of this month’s challenge which is maximum push ups in two minutes.  This month we are being stricter on push up form, requiring full chest to floor depth with full extension at the top which makes the reps considerably tougher then when the depth requirement is only a 90 degree elbow angle.

I managed 58 reps in the two minutes, not a great number, I wanted to at least crack 60.

I then tried a pull up challenge that I came up with in my head.  The goal was to complete 5 sets of 10 pull ups with a maximum of 60 seconds of rest in between sets.  There was a point in time where I couldn’t even complete 3 sets of 10 with the same rest parameters.

I really don’t like doing high rep pull up exercises indoors.  The bent legs required indoors messes up my form and center of gravity.  I barely was able to complete the 4th set of 10 and bailed out after rep 4 on the final set.  I’d like try this again outdoors to see if I can take this challenge down.
