100 Push-ups

Last night’s workout was five rounds of 5 sumo deadlifts, followed by one round of row 1000 and do 100 push-ups. Dave said he’d noticed last week that we all suck at push-ups. Ouch! I did my push-ups last night in a couple of sets of 10 followed by alternating 6 and 4 reps.
My rowing time for 1000 meters was 3:59, my best 1000 meter time. I picked up my pace at the end when I saw it was possible I’d get under 4:00. I was happy with this, considering my legs were somewhat “used” from the deadlifting. For the deadlifts I started at 50 kilos and progressed to 80, which was sort of close to a 5-rep max, but I probably could have gone a few kilos heavier.
I was just getting over being sore from last Friday’s “Chelsea” workout–30 minutes straight of 5 pull-ups, 10 push-ups, 15 air squats. You start over on the minute, each minute. I quickly become unable to finish all 10 push-ups and still have 10 to 15 seconds of rest before the next minute begins. So by the end of the 30 minutes, I was doing 5 pull-ups, 6 push-ups on knees, and 12 squats. I tore up my hands with all those pull-ups, and my chest was so sore the next two days that I could hardly reach behind me to get in and out of a jacket. So, I wasn’t excited about yesterday’s 100 push-ups. Surprisingly today I feel nice and “worked out,” but not over-tired or sore.
