W2 L1 D3 - 8:12
10 pull ups in sets of 3,2,2,1,2
21 push ups in sets of 15,6
21 squats in 1 set
My aim is to keep improving on my day 3 time every week, and only to consider modifying things if I hit a plateau over a few weeks. So really should be pleased to knock 20 seconds off it I guess, but can't help but feel a bit disappointed.
After banging out my first 3 pull ups I thought I might be able to finish in 5 minutes, but the pull ups are really tough. Tempted to add some additional exercises to my routine, but like I say not going to do that unless I feel I've completely stopped making progress. Feel in particular like the small muscles between my shoulder blades need strengthening.
I think what gained me those 20 seconds today was finishing my pull ups with a set of 2, although i suspect my form wasn't perfect.
Also am pretty much going to failure with each set of 1 or 2 pull ups. The only alternative to that I think would be to do assisted pull ups for a few weeks until I improve, but not keen on doing that.
