29th May, 2012 — Workout — Pushups & Leg Raises

Another Pushup & Leg Raise day to start my workweek back from Memorial Day.

Feeling pretty good after the warmup of 50 Full Pushups, feeling like I can get 20 Close Pushups in one of today’s sets. I’m thinking of just going for it first set because I’ll have the most endurance for it.

Again, like with most of my workouts I’m taking 120 second rests between sets and 150 second rests between work sets.

Well as you can see, I was only able to complete 17 Close Pushups, but I’m no discouraged because I know that It’ll only be a few more workouts before I’m strong enough to crank out three sets of 20. Are you feeling any discouragement today? If so, embrace it and use it to fuel you onto your next level of progress. 

For this last work set of Close Pushups, I’m going to see if I can do them on the railing of the deck, based upon a suggestion from my little nephew. Check out the video for the action! 


We’ve this little kitten that keeps coming around, must’ve been abandoned or something. I’m not sure if she’ll make a guest appearance in my video this evening yet. She keeps creeping around watching me.

I was trying to get to 25 Straight Leg Raises with the second work set, but after coming back up on that 23rd rep, I knew my form was going to be shot if I kept trying. I’ll be able to get them soon!

Overall good workout today. Seeing some progress, albeit slow, it’s still there 🙂 Check back tomorrow for the video and tomorrows workout.
