Actually, on point #1, I used to do it with no rest. Then a few weeks ago, I started doing it as Rx'd. I think if anything, more rest is a good thing on that day. Day 1 is the endurance day. Let day 2 be what it's suppose to be: strength.jbowling13 wrote:1. Don't worrying too much about "passing" day 2. Make sure you're doing all the moves with good form. Keep track of the break time between sets and possibly reduce the time in the following week to build more up the necessary muscle endurance for day 3.
2. You seem upset that you're having to breakup the pullup and pushup sets on day 3. I think this is to be expected, especially for the upcoming levels.
All in all, I think you'd be safe to move up.
On point #2, if it makes you feel any better, I have never done the pullups or pushups on day 3 as a single set. Always had to stop and rest even if for a second.
