    Thanks Mike.

    Secs remaining for each of the 10X 1 min sets.

    EMOM chest to floor press-ups, 6 reps x 18 minutes, so a total of 108. Too knackered to do any more.

    Too knackered! C'mon Mike. Looking at the record you only ran 13 plus miles and a trifling 4hrs 30 plus mins yesterday. More spinach needed, surely

    Dumbbell bicep curls. 2 X 12.5 kg. Simultaneous lifting with both arms.Eccentric lowering. 2 mins break between sets, during which I did x( 10) reps of floor to lock to floor press-ups. Curl Reps were to failure, per set.

    23 (10) - 15 (10) - 13 (10) - 11 (10) - 11 (10) - 10 (10) - 10 (10) - 11 (10) = 106 lifts and 80 press-ups.

    Erm...no running for me today by I did muck out 8 stables

    EMOM x 24 minutes, 2 chin-ups alternating with 8 chest to floor press-ups, so 24 chin-ups, 96 press-ups.

    That's a huge improvement in 2 days.

    I wish! Previously, 11 reps per min.. Today 10 reps min.. That 10% difference per set is very significant and obviously cumulatively more challenging with each set. That's why I'm 50/50 fail at 12 reps. An extra 20% really hurts. The effort all becomes markedly difficult in the last 2 to 3 sets, where performance falls off a cliff. And once that happens your recovery time for the next set is diminished to the point it can be extremely hard. Give it a go?

    I thought I should try this to show me how far away I am from Mossdog's 10 chest to floor press-ups EMOM for 10 minutes.

    EMOM for 15 minutes, the first 3 sets were 10, all the rest 5. I chose 5 as after those 10s I could not do any more in that 4th set, and thereafter it made the counting easy.

    So a total of 90. Sets of 10 are tough with so little recovery.
