Push-ups 100x

February 16, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

A lot of people at my job like talking about P90X. I didn’t give it much attention because it sounds like every other “get ripped in 90 days” program and after looking at the company’s website, I have to say it’s exactly what I thought it would be. However, I do like the workout’s main argument — change your workout routine every 30 days to avoid plateauing. In my opinion, that’s all you need to know about P90X. Save your $60.

That said, today I switched up my chest workout. I’m still doing the slow routine, but today I added 100 push-ups. (I used to incorporate medicine ball push ups in my chest workouts, but gave that a break.) I thought it’d be easy, but man it was pretty tough. Do-able, but tough. So my chest workout today looked like this:

1)Super slow bench press
185 lbs. x 6 reps
135 lbs. x 8
185 lbs. x 6 reps
135 lbs. x 8

2)Push-ups
20 reps
20 reps
20 reps

3)Super slow dumbbell incline flys
50 lbs. on each hand 8 reps
40 lbs on each hand 10 reps
50 lbs. on each hand 8 reps
40 lbs on each hand 10 reps

4)Push-ups
20 reps
20 reps

5)Seated bench press (machine)
140 lbs. 8 reps
100 lbs 10 reps
140 lbs. 8 reps
100 lbs 10 reps

6)Pull-ups
As many as possible
