So I took quite a few days off before I started week 3 and took days off between the three days of push-ups. I tell you what, day one was TOUGH and the difficulty only increased. I’m basically doing double the amount of pushups each set as opposed to last week. When I first started this challenge I wouldn’t have even been able to do even one of these sets! I pushed through it though.
During weeks one and two, I remember scoffing at the ‘long breaks’ between each sets (1-2 minutes or more if needed). This week though, I ended up taking an average of two minutes between each set. I definitely felt weak from the exertion by the last ‘max out’ set.
The last day was the worst. During a set (or two), instead of knocking out all the pushups in a row, I had to remain in push-up position and take an extra breath or two before I could complete all the push-ups. Starting with Day One this week, I’m not even sure if I did all of my push-ups correctly. I know that I kept good form (I can definitely tell my core has strengthened!) but I’m not sure if I went ‘all the way down’ in ALL of my pushups. It’s honestly a bit of a disappointment.
I predict Week 4 will not be any easier…
