    Five hundred in one day; it takes less than an hour, I do it in front of the TV so I won't get bored.

    I can't do pushups every day, I have a bad muscle in my chest, must have hurt it at some point long ago. It never heals fully. If I do pushups too often it starts aching all the time, and then I can't do pushups for about six weeks - this happened twice. (This is really annoying. A reminder to everyone: be very careful so you don't damage a muscle! It could stay damaged forever.)

    I used to put my feet on the couch to make the pushups more difficult, but I stopped doing that two months ago. It doesn't make the pushups that much more difficult. And keeping my feet on the ground makes me tense my body much more to keep straight while doing the pushups, which is better. It should work on all those little muscles that help keep you upright, right?

    One big motivator is that I used to have a bad back, probably from sitting too much while working. That has completely disappeared, due to a lot of walking, and also pushups I imagine. Situps are a more recent addition, but it's never too late to start.


    I got bored doing the same thing over and over though for more than two years, five hundred pushups every three days, so I cut down to four hundred this spring to get it over with faster. Before that, I found that I was skipping too many times. But now I have instead increased the pushups to six hundred the last few times. And that makes me more enthusiastic. Going from four hundred to six hundred is a fifty percent increase, perhaps it will show after a while. (Five weeks?) Variation is always good.

    One set to failure - both concentric and eccentric I suppose? - oh wait, you can't do that on deadlifts, and a bit dangerous on rows also? Not typical HIT what you are doing Neckhammer?

    Not much time today, so I decided on a sled mile after warming up. A bit over 200 meters per lap, 7 laps total. Dragging the sled in harness, not pushing it. First lap was 25 lbs, went up 25 pounds each lap - after the 100 lb lap started working my way back down the weight ladder.

    That was enough for one day!

    Well 5 warmup sets for 1 working deadlift set.... did 4 reps and could not get fifth. Actually didn't even attempt fifth, so you are correct... not typical HIT.

    The other two were done with machines so yes, done to failure like HIT usually is.

    I'm currently doing 2 workouts/week. With one multi-set compound barbell lift and 2-3 other lifts done to failure (today was machines, but I've done weighted chins and weighted dips to concentric failure with one drop set to BW to concentric failure).

    Just doing my own thing...
