The way I understand it is I do 1 pullup, my partner does 1 pullup (or pause for the equivalent amount of time if you're doing it solo). Then I do 2, partner does 2 (or a slightly longer pause) then 3, then 4 etc. until you can't do any more.

Another way I've seen it is to do 1 pullup in the first minute, 2 in the second minute and so on until you can't fit the prescribed number of pullups into the given minute. This method might work better if you don't have a training partner.

That sounds good too Darrel, probably easier to time. The other thing to remember with these is that you stop doing them a couple of reps before failure. So if you can do say 10 you would stop at about 7-8 then go up the ladder again.

I'm due for Day 3 today but seem to have hurt my arm :evil: No idea how and it doesn't feel like muscle soreness, more like a sharp pain mid bicep, feels like its on the bone, whenever I raise my right arm. So I will be resting for a couple of days, hope it goes quickly I really wanted to give this GTG thing a go.

Was out for a week with a sore arm then managed to lock myself out of the forum for another week after that :evil:

Anyway Monday was a D2 style workout with DDR.

Yesterday I tried pavell's ladders on pushups, what I did was morn, noon and evening I did the ladder twice on pushups, 10 mins of DDR, and 5 bodyrows almost horizontal (under the trampoline). Also did 10 mins of abs after the 2nd mini workout. Kinda fun, I might try and keep it up for a week or two and see if it helps improve my pushups at all. Just need to workout a routine that still incorporates the pullups and leg & ab work without overtraining. I'm actually a bit sore today probably from the bodyrows.

Also last night I attempted a couple of full pushups and found I could actually do a couple of really shallow ones, not decent enough to count yet though.

Ahhhh, its good to be back :lol:
