Day 12

Day 12 of the 6 Week Challenge:

While I’m still working on reaching 20 pull-ups and chin-ups, those are understandably going to take a while. Therefore, I’m mixing up my exercises, because as I’ve said in the past, I get bored easily. So, here’s where I’m at, as of today:

Day 12:

  • 94 push-ups (35 regular, 35 inclined, 24 declined)
  • 101 sit-ups (in a single set. I got bored and started to feel some lower back discomfort, so I stopped; especially since that’s why sit-ups are apparently dangerous.)
  • 13 pull-ups (4 in my first set. That’s twice what I started at, several weeks ago.)
  • 15 chin-ups (Also, 4 in my first set. I’m also now completing 3 in multiple sets, which were virtually impossible, before.)
  • 3:00 planking (3 in a single set. I followed that by 30 seconds of side planks and bird-dogs, each side.)
  • 50 squats, with 2 x 25 lb. dumbbells (These are boring now. I’ve got to find a replacement that doesn’t tire the arms so much, from simply holding the weights.)
  • 50 bench dips (in a single set.)

I think it’s worth mentioning that these aren’t the only exercises I’m doing, not even on the day that I complete this routine. These exercises are only part of my routine. It’s not even unusual for me to complete a 5 mile run after these exercises. So, while others may incorporate these into their routines, they will likely see significantly different results, based on that fact, alone.
