    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    I've never done this before. I'm just doing endless sets of push-ups. Sets of 20 and sets of 30. Like every few minutes. I get the impression I'm going to hurt tomorrow...but it seems endless.

    Shoot, I got to 201 push-ups in two hours and the last three (edit - 5 sets!) sets went 15, 15, 9, 1, 1.

    It's pretty easy to do 1000 pushups over the course of several hours if you keep the sets to 10 or 15 reps. I occasionally throw in a 1000 pushup day for fun with no soreness or anything.

    Good to know! One more awesome way to exercise!

    I did 300+ in a out a half hour. Fun game with a buddy or two, take a deck of cards, numbers represent how many pushups you do, jack 15 queen 20 king 25 ace 30. Flip a card and do the pushups, your only rest is the other peoples turns.

    Ha ha, that would be fun but at that rate my muscles lock up and can't physically move. I know it made my gym teachers mad, and some people don't understand how this can be real, but even when I feel strong and ready to do more reps, the muscle just turns to stone and cannot move. It might be genetic.
