Day 1rest 60 seconds between each SET (longer if required)
|11 - 20 push ups|
|set 5||max (at least 9)|
45 total for day 1, but going to go with the middle column for days 2 and 3. Part of me is a bit worried that I could damage muscle if I pushed a bit too hard - something I am likely to do - it felt like I had pushed too hard today.
Day 2rest 90 seconds between each SET
|set 5||max (at least 7)|
33 done, and ouch my stomach! It's p-u-l-l-i-n-g so bad. Really gutted that my body is still so broken. *Gloom* Still, this is the time where I am rebuilding, the best is yet to be. Trying to think positive - the ache and stretching is muscle being pushed to get stronger.
Day 3rest 120 seconds between each SET
|set 5||max (at least 10)|
42 today - much more easily achieved than the 45 on day 1, which is promising. Week 1 complete and with 120 for the week. A year ago I couldn't pull myself up to sitting in bed, my abdomen was so weak. I am really excited about doing this and rebuilding my core strength.
