Day 4 – The Challenge

Here is your challenge: Pick 2 numbers 1 for pull-ups 1 for push-ups.  That is the number you try to do.  My numbers were 5 and 10. (It is the first week)  Now you do two rounds of different types of pull-ups and push-ups.  That is it.  Simple and easy.

Warm-up: Pretty quick, mostly shoulder and arm stuff.

Round 1: Wide-Pull-Ups/Standard Push-Ups – You are early in the workout, so these were pretty good.  I could do all 5 pull-ups without a break at this point, and 10 push-ups were no problem.  Repeat: again I was able to get all 5 pull-ups with no break, and 10 push-ups.

Round 2: Chin-Up/Military Push-Ups – Turning the hands around makes it easier.  Again I was able to do 5 unbroken and military push-ups are my favorite, so those were no problem.  Repeat: Needed my first break. 3 followed by 2 pull-ups.  Push-ups: no problem.

Round 3: Close Hand Pull-Up/Wide Push-up – Had to do these broken: 3 then 2 on the pull ups, Push-Ups: no problem.  Repeat: Again I did 3 then 2 on the pull-ups, followed by 10 wide push ups.

Round 4: Vaulter Pull-Ups/Stagger Hand Push-Ups – Broken record here.  Did it the same way. 3 then 2.

Burnout Round: 1 Pull-Up (any style) followed by 3 push-ups (any style) repeat.  As many rounds as possible in 2 and a half minutes.  I managed to get through 6 rounds before my jello arms would not do anymore.  There was still 36 seconds left on the clock.

Overall a nice upper body workout packed into 30 minutes. Love it.  Again, X3 is so much better than the others simple due to the shorter length of time and less Tony yacking.

The kids: Alice, who is almost grotesque in her muscles, Bobby Stevenson from P90X, and Sean Callahan.  All 3 of these kids can bring it, so trying to get to the level they are at would be a very high goal.  Alice does 20/30, Bobby 12/24 and Sean 18/40.  Actually Bobby goes beyond his numbers and Alice does not quite make it.  Well actually Tony tries to grab her tit to get her motivated, but it does not quite work.  It is actually quite creepy to watch…
