    This morning, a proper Sally-Up challenge - 2 mins 28 secs - First of the year.

    This afternoon. Straight, floor to lock to floor press-ups. Palms fully off the floor at the end/beginning of each rep. Slow pace, one set only, but I managed 52. I'm ok with that (for now!)

    Chin-ups - unweighted - topless and sockless - sets to failure, set + rest = 4 minutes, 8 sets: 6 - 5 - 4 - 4 - 4 - 4 - 3 - 3. So 33 in total.

    To "fill" the 4 minutes, and also as a warm up, I have been doing 20 lunges or squats - with the pack on.

    Dumbbell bicep curls. 2 X 12.5 kg. Simultaneous lifting with both arms.Eccentric lowering. 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.

    27 (10) - 15 (10) - 13 (10) - 13 (10) - 11 (10) - 11 (10) - 11 (10)

    Chin-ups - alternating unweighted with 5 kg weighted - sets to failure, set + rest = 4 minutes, 8 sets - unweighted were 6 - 5 - 4 - 4; weighted were 2 - 2 - 2 - 2.

    Squats and lunges in-between the sets.

    First a Sally-Up challenge - 2 mins 11 secs - Second of the year and I'm regressing!

    Then 2 min rest before 'hovering' isometrically in a 'standard' press-up down position for 6 sets with 2 mins breaks between for:

    1 min 13 secs;
    41 secs;
    46 secs;
    42 ses;
    39 secs;
    41 secs.

    At the end of each of these isometric sets there was absolutely no way I could have pushed up to a lock position!

    That's pretty hardcore Mike! Very well done. I couldn't manage those numbers on a none-run day let alone after 10 plus miles and 3000 plus feet of fellrunning!

    That is one of the advantages of chest to floor press-ups - there is no hover. But of course the weight that is lifted is lifted further, and then it is lowered all the way back down.
