    EMOM - sets of 10 press-ups, floor to lock to floor. Time in secs remaining for each min.

    40 - 39 - 40 - 40 - 41 - 39 - 38 - 35 - 31 - 17

    My performance on this 'go-to' exercise has plummeted recently. Too much teeth grinding?
    Doing them almost daily is probably too often to allow recovery. Alternate with chin-ups? I'll get my coat.

    Too true Mike. I tried just a single chin-up yesterday and my elbow was on fire! Definitely I'll give them a rest

    Once a week exercises to failure vs twice a week - quite an elderly group, and only for 9 weeks, but "no difference".

    Thanks Mike, but doesn't apply to a young whippersnapper such as 'I is'

    It would been interesting to see the effects of my frequently weekly bouts too.Enjoy your permitted exercise today, weather looks great.

    Blimey! You are quite literally going from strength to strength Mike.

    Chin-ups, EMOM for 60 minutes: 4 triples, 9 doubles, the rest singles, so 77 in total.

    Re press-ups, I can see it will take a while to get to 10 EMOM for 10 minutes, so I try to keep myself content with volume.

    And volume much better for endurance too, I imagine.

    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.

    22 - 16 - 12 - 11 - 10 - 9 - 10 - 10 - 8

    I skipped the press-ups between sets today, as I find these a bit too much after an earlier 10K plus indoor row (sad old git that I am)

    Saw a link to recent paper that I now cannot find. A study looked at leg extension machine exercises vs squats - participants did one leg of each. Both exercises resulted in muscle hypertrophy of about the same amount - measured by MRI - but knee extension exercises caused hypertrophy near the knee, and single leg squats near the hip. The linker felt this could be disadvantageous in running - extra weight lower down = increased work needed to move it. I thought it was an interesting example of an expensive machine getting results but not necessarily good results.
