    I see everyone's eager to display their level of phail for the world to see, so I'll go first.

    I just got to 30 in standard form.

    *incoming "I used to be able to..."*

    I haven't done a regular program of pushups for ages, I got up to about 50 a few years ago but since then I've been on and off with the fitness work. When I do a quick couple sets of 15-20 before I go out I usually do them reverse inclined on fists for that little bit extra.

    And also so that I can say I do reverse inclined pushups. Sounds better.

    Thats actually really good straight of the bat man.

    I've been doing them as part of a circuit a few times a week. Was pulling up sore, but have found taking magnesium after excersize works wonders.

    The most I've done in one hit since starting Muay Thai was 20, but thought I'd just see how many I could do in a row and hit 60. That was after 45min of hitting the heavy bag, but I dont really think the result would have been much different if it was straight after the warmup instead.

    Reverse incline is tough. lots of load on the shoulders. Not my forte'. We often do regular incline pushups but using lowered olympic rings as a handhold. So stability is key. Easier on the arms, but hard on the core.


    Pushups are one of the easier things my (awesome) sadist trainer has us do. Have a 1.5hr session tonight. I bet he makes us do burpees again.

    Who knows may have been worse, I find my rowing sprints are always quicker at the end of my work out. Then again if for some reason [other wise known as someone's using the bars] I leave my weighted dips to the very end of my workout once my chest and tri's are thoroughly taxed my lifts are pretty woeful.

    Doing pushups on the olympic rings would be sweet, unfortunately there not the most common piece of equipment in gyms.

    Yeah, it's funny that hey.
    I find with pads and sparring, I dont really start to fire until the second or third round, so there's that. But I also find I can still go really hard when we do strength work after a session.
    Pushups and abs are always the last thing we do.

    Tonight was cool. Hard but cool.
    We did a seven station circuit, one minute each station, with a minute's rest between circuits. 4 circuits, then did 5min of ab work.

    Station 1: Plyometric jumps over a box, another box, into a tractor tire, out of the tire, over a 3rd box, then turn around and go again.

    Station 2: Dont know what you call in but a wieghted bar attached to the floor. 15kg. Side to side with straight arms.

    Station 3: My old mate burpees

    Station 4: heavy bag, speed combo, 4 punches.

    Station 5: 1kg dumbell in each hand. Straight punces, keeping guard up. (Tougher than it sounds after a minute)

    Station 6: Double knee, double knee in thai clinch on the teardrop bag.

    Station 7: Weighted bar. Overhand grip, Clean to shoulders, press, slow return.

    All these were emphasis on speed, so 100% flat out. 1min rest after 7 stations. Then repeat 4 times.

    Sparring tomorrow. Always fun.

    I'm wondering how much longer I can keep this up before I start gaining obscene amounts of weight

    I have a fast metabolism, so it doesn't seem to matter. I only put weight on when I put on muscle, but everyone's different. If you excersise, or have a physical job, you'll probably delay the inevitable for a while but if your calorie intake far exceeds your output, it wont take too long...
    I've been bad lately, and I feel it when I train.
