    2 chin-ups EMOM for 30 minutes, so 60 in total.

    The guilt when I don't do a resistance session at least every 48 hours is almost palpable. And yet it is only the last few efforts of each session that require a bit of willpower.

    I know exactly what you mean! If I don't run, row, or do some core ex each day I start to feel 'itchy' and slovenly. Truth is though, if I ran as frequently as you, and with those distances, I'd feel sorted for months ahead

    Dumbbell bicep curls. 2 X 12.5 kg. Simultaneous lifting with both arms. 2 mins break between sets, during which I did (x10) reps of floor to lock to floor press-ups. Curl Reps were to failure, per set.

    24 (10) - 17 (10) - 14 (10) - 10 (10) - 11 (10) - 10 (10) - 10 (10) - 9 (10)

    I thought I would try Mr B's press-ups off a bar - I found them harder than "ordinary" press-ups, but not as hard as the chest to floor variety.

    Press-ups off a bar, EMOM for 20 minutes, 10 reps x 8 sets, 6 reps x 12 sets. So 152 in total.

    Press-ups (floor to lock to floor) to failure per set - 1 min recovery intervals between sets.

    33 - 22 - 13 - 11 - 11 - 10 - 11 - 10 - 10 - 9

    Dumbbell bicep curls. 2 X 12.5 kg. Simultaneous lifting with both arms. Admittedly after the first few sets it descended (no pun intended) in shoddy eccentric lowering. Just 1 min break and no press-ups between sets. Curl Reps were to failure, per set. Great start, then tailed off rapidly not helped by weak grasp after the first set effort!!

    EMOM 2 chin-ups for 25 minutes - so 50 in total - in fact 51, but number 52 I only got halfway up. I should have pressed on with singles of course, but it truly did not occur to me at the time.

    That's pretty good going Mike! I'm still nursing an elbow niggle from the last lot of chin-ups I tried, which fortunately doesn't appear to bother press-ups or curls significantly.

    Thanks Mossdog - I cannot expect continuous improvement.

    I am surprised your dumbbell biceps curls have not prevented your elbow niggle, but I guess there is a big difference between half your body weight and 12.5 kg. And muscles become stronger more quickly than other body tissues.
