Oh man, man-makers are brutal. I hurt my shoulder and neck trying to do them when Nate first introduced the idea of them to me. Haven't tried them since. They're just crazy hard.

As for pushups, way to go Steph! I'm just over 1250 in January myself, despite having missed nearly a week after my birthday seizure. If I keep up at the rate I've been going for the rest of the month then I will be upping my goal for the year to 20,000. High fives to the workout crew!!

Angry Russian Pirate workout. Figure out how many pushups you can do at a stretch. Do half that every hour. FOREVER. It keeps me from gaining weight on vacation.

Holy crap that'd be a ton of pushups! Let's see... Awake for 16 hours a day, times 19 pushups a set... I'd complete my entire year's goal of pushups in under two months on that schedule! That has to be murder on your arms and shoulders.

Hrm.  Working 11 hours a day kinda puts a damper on that.  Might try it for the weekends though......I have been doubling up on my workouts on Saturdays if I can, somewhat for MOAR RESULTS, also so I don't feel I'm falling behind if I have to skip a day due to illness/injury/work being stupid.  I almost think the Angry Pirate workout is what Nate does over the summer...........

For me it's my wrists, actually. Started to use push up bars to take some stress off. Also allows for a deeper push up.

Month one is now over!  Or rather, has been over, but work has been too busy for me to post about things!

One of the things I want to do this year (in the overall scheme of becoming more fit and losing weight) is try out various challenges and then add those exercises to my daily repertoire.  It gives a goal for a month (yay something to work towards) and also pushes the workout so it doesn't become completely stagnant.

For February, Nate and I are doing the squat challenge.  I have seen a couple of variations on it, but this is the version we're doing.  I've seen people doing those higher numbers in sets while others seem to be doing them all in one go..........we're doing sets, to my knowledge.

After 4 days, I must say, I'm really glad they put rest days in there.  Whoo boy do you feel the burn.

Those numbers of squats are huuuuuuge. I'll just stick with my walk 10,000 steps a day routine on the leg front for now. On a more positive note, I'm increasing my pushups goal for 2014 to The Year of Twenty Thousand Pushups!

Good on you Tim!  20k is happy number.  

Thought for the day:

So - status update. About a month into this now. I can do twenty push-ups in a row. I would say "I can do 20 easy" but no, that's not really true. It's not *EASY*. But I can do a 20-set every day, then finish up the last ten later. Haven't missed a 30-a-day yet :).

Also? The whole thing where I couldn't manage to repeat a full 10-15 set twice in the day? GONE. If I just push myself a little, I can manage to do a twenty set, then another twenty set later on.

It's pretty awesome. It's actually really pretty awesome.


I've also resolved to really *REALLY* push my diet angle for the month. If it works out, i'll see about extending it longer. The idea is to use the hell out of Subway to target a ~1400-1800 calorie daily nom-nom pattern.  . .and eating more if i actually end up getting hungry. Its simple really - $5-$6 gets you a footlong with wheat, tuna, veggies, more veggies, etc. Tastes great; about 1.2k cals. Leaves just enough in the calorie budget for some simple-carbs (YAY! CANDY) and/or a varied evening 'thirdmeal'. So far i've been at it almost ten days, and it's already easy to do hungerwise.

Next step: Abdominal curls/planks. I don't think I'm actually gonna add this one on . . . but who knows? We'll see.

Congrats on the progress! That's great work.

Diet changes ain't easy so be careful about overdoing it. So many folks who go overboard on their diets are able to keep it up for a length of time, lose weight, then either finish the time they wanted to do it or give up on it. Then they binge on food and gain back all the weight they lost and then some. Changing your eating habits is a lifestyle change that needs to stick for the results to stick. If the changes you're looking at are bit, you might be better off taking them slowly than all at once.
