total push ups/chins 369,947
Push up/chin up numbers this week haven't been too bad considering the fact that I am trying to get back into the routine of daily workouts again. I would like to get the numbers a little higher on a daily basis -but my right elbow is a bit tender. I think the pain is related to just getting my body used to doing a high number of daily repetitions of body weight exercise. I heard on the radio today that the way Simon Cowell stays in shape is a regimen of 500 push ups a day. I know from experience that I can pound out 500 or so a day- I am going to listen to my body as I drive the volume back up again. No sense blowing out an elbow. If I have to do one arm push up or chin ups everyday- my daily numbers will be even lower (if any at all).
