    EMOM - 6 press-ups this time - 9 sets of 6 and 1 set of 5 and a half. That extra 1 makes such a difference.

That way in the seconds remaining, I can stand. flex, shake my arms out and be in position again as the count down approaches the final few seconds, ready to restart. I might try delaying the start of a set, next time to see how that works out.

    Today. Chin-ups, set, then 1 min rest. Reps to failure in each set. 4 - 2 - 2 - 2 - 1 - 1 - 1 - 1. Still finding these tough!
    Well done, real progress.

    It does!!

    Dumbbell bicep curls. 2 X 12.5 kg. Simultaneous lifting with both arms. Eccentric lowering. Reduced to 1 min break between sets. Curl Reps were to failure, per set.

    Chin-ups, 4 minutes = set + rest, sets to failure: 3 - 2 - 2 - 2 - 1 - 2 - 1 - 1 - 1 - 1.

    Adding that minute did not really help.

    Yes, you'd have thought it would. The body can be so unpredictable.

    Dumbbell bicep curls. 2 X 12.5 kg. Simultaneous lifting with both arms. Eccentric lowering. Reduced to 1 min break between sets. Curl Reps were to failure, per set.

    20 - 10 - 10 - 9 - 8 - 8 - 8 Much steeper decline that usual on this exercise. I've upped my indoor rowing this last week so perhaps it's having a negative effect, with prolonger muscle fatigue. Physiology, eh!

    EMOM - 6 press-ups - 8 sets of 6 and 1 set of 4. I need to do these more often to make progress.

    EMOM - 6 chest to floor press-ups - 10 sets of 6 and 1 set of 5. I certainly used all of the 60 seconds in that last full set.
