    Dumbbell bicep curls. 2 X 12.5 kg. Simultaneous lifting with both arms. Eccentric lowering. 2 mins break between sets. Curl Reps were to failure, per set.

    Not sure what happened to yesterday's post, but anyway I wanted to see how many EMOM sets of 10 press-ups I could do before failure. Turns out that it's 17 set. Not the most efficient way to exercise, but at least it provided some variety.

    Today - set + rest = 3 mins . Floor to lock to floor press-ups to failure in each set.

    I could have probably got a couple of more sets out there, but probably not managed any better number of reps. 10/11 reps seems to be my base, with enough of the 3 mins left to recover sufficiently to churn out that number. Not sure how helpful regarding strength building any more reps would be. I'm still shying away, for the moment, from repeating the Sally humiliation experience

    After February off I need to get back into this - 20 x 8kg biceps curls each side to start - not to failure, as I don't want to be too sore tomorrow.

    The plan was to do sets of 8 chest to floor press-ups with a minutes rest, until I could no longer do 8 - didn't take long - 4 sets of 8 then 1 set of 5. Oh dear.

    Good effort though Mike, especially after a break. I tend to think, possible erronously, that it's not so much the number of reps or set, but getting to the point of failure that marks were the strength building begins. Well, that's what I tell myself

    Another bash at the 'Bring Sally Up' challenge(s) with 2 mins rest periods between the 5 sets.

    Press-ups are not to the floor but stop at the standard press-up position.

    Times achieved: 2 mins 12 secs; 1 min 39 secs; 57 secs; 59 secs; 58 secs.
