I could barely do 7 pushups when i started and now i can do sets of 20 pushups! I went from doing 10 sets to failure to doing 100 pushups with as few sets as possible. Atm, that number is 9 sets. Trying to get it down.

That's some solid progress, good job! However, doing 10 sets to failure is WAY better than doing 100 push-ups per day with as few sets as possible.

If you can now do sets of 20, why go for 100 reps when you can surely do close to double that with 10 sets to failure? The failure is what caused your growth, so why are you getting rid of it?

You're looking for an easier way to work out, but doing so will not get you the results you're after.

Oof.

Day 2 done. 5 sets of 20.

But I needed an extra 15 seconds of rest for my last set.

I wonder why that is?
I did skip my morning jog...
Maybe my muscles weren’t warmed up enough.

Goal: 100 push-ups in 3 sets or less.

you will start noticing that it will get slightly harder to do the 100.

So I have been pretty regular since I started and start to see some results.

I do 10 sets to failures Monday, Tuesday, and Friday + other exercises with my kettlebell.

I have always been a slow gainer but since i stretched out before and after exercising, i feel i am gaining faster.

I may eventually adapt the training, and do 30 sets to failures over two days (15/day) instead of doing 10 three times a week.

I figured it would exhaust the muscles more + give more time for recovery.

I'll think about it. Probably gonna do 2-3 weeks more of that current schedule, then switch to 2x15 sets per week.

The thing about business is that you can never follow a plan as if there is such a thing as a plan, then it's unlikely to work.

"For three easy payments of $29.99, I will reveal the seven easy steps you need to take to grow an online dropshipping business from 0 to 1 million per day, from the comfort of your couch".

Edit: and figuring it out is as fun as it is frustrating.

It's May 1, so added 10 more to the routine.
140 a day now.

Haven't missed a day.

Somedays I think I'm getting stronger, some days it's a struggle. But, I do them daily regardless.

9 days in.
Ease of effort comes in waves. Some days I pump them out. Other days it’s INCREDIBLY hard.

Day 15: going to bump it another set of 20.
Let’s keep at it. Going to also slowly incorporate other exercises in after Day 21 (3 week mark)
