    I'm horribly out of shape :embar: but been making decent progress with pull-ups.

    Today:

    5 sets of 5 pull-ups

    and

    100 knuckle ups.

    Switched from standard push-up to knuckle ups a week ago.

    Technically yesterday, but I did:

    bw+20lb pullups x 6
    bw pullup x10, x3, and x2.

    No pushups, I don't do those on the same days.

    I'm doing the 2 week Evil Russian Program. Yesterday, it was 22 pushups and 8 pullups every hour; today it's 10 pushups and 6 pullups every 45 minutes.

    I did 10 push-ups yesterday. I hate doing them, so while doing them I realized I wasn't having fun and stopped at 10. I need to get motivated to do them regularly, and certainly more than one set of 10.

    Did 2 sets of 5 pull-ups.

    I hadn't done a pull-up in like 8 years (hadn't tried), so I was somewhat pleased with that.

    Affirmative - until an hour before bed. Too much stuff to do in a day to be able to do it every hour, but Pavel the Russian says not to worry if some are missed. Tomorrow, it's 18 every 30 minutes (oy). I have a countdown timer app that chimes when it's time.

    I just do them during commercials when I'm watching tv. It helps a lot with the lack of funness.

    This Evil Russian program might be working. 1 week in and I've increased my pushup count from 40 to 52.

    Yesterday I did pullups (rested 1:30 between each set):
    1 set of 10 - bodyweight (warmup)
    1 set of 5 - bw + 20 lbs (warmup)
    1 set of 5 - bw + 35 lbs (warmup)
    1 set of 5 - bw + 55 lbs (warmup)
    1 set of 7 - bw + 60 lbs
    1 set of 5 - bw + 65 lbs
    1 set of 3 - bw + 70 lbs
    1 set of 5 - bw + 60
    This totals 50 pullups at varying weights.

    Today I did pushups:
    I did 15 sets of the following: Swim 50 meters, get out and do 20 pushups
    This made for a total of 750 meter swim and 300 pushups
    I don't remember how long it took me.
