So let’s talk about last week’s goal for the Challenge: I was self assisting with a chair, and with my foot on the chair. This week, I got a pull up assist band, and I learned to only put my toes on the chair when self assisting. This is going to change my Challenge results a lot. So I’m adjusting my goal for this week to that.
Pull Up Challenge Number: 4 Assist Band/4 Self Assisted
Push Up Challenge Number: 6; No Breaks; No Modifications
Like most other workouts this week, the Challenge doesn’t return for another 5 weeks after this. I really wanted to focus on precision in my form, so when I come back to it, I have a really accurate measure of my improvement.
I have to say – 6 real push ups are waaaay harder than 12 modified push ups, but I feel like I did well today. It’s the first time I’ve ever done non-modified bicep push ups and yeow it’s hard.
I know I’ll do better next time the Challenge comes around, though!
