Hah, and you thought I'd given up, didn't you? - Elf M. Sternberg
Hah, and you thought I'd given up, didn't you?
I made it 46 push ups tonight. Hooray me.

I'm reminded of a Hollywood actor who did 55 each night in a classic 10-9-8 pattern, with a minute's rest between them, when he was on the road. He said, "Somewhere between 6 and 7 I like to use that minute to go into the bathroom and puke."

Yeah, I get that.

Current Mood: exhausted exhausted

If you're feeling nauseous, you're doing something right -- the production of HGH (that chemical that signals your muscles to grow) causes nausea.

I think you were referring to Mike Rowe from Dirty Jobs and his description of "Burpees".

Seriously, if you could do descending sets starting at 10 of those burpees and not die trying, that's amazing ...

I think you're right. Maybe I should try that after I pass 55 push-ups.
