100 push-ups, vertical edition – Week 1, second and third try

This is a status report for progress on my own vertical version of the 100 push-ups program. To see what this is all about and what rules I’ve set for myself, please check the original post from January 5th.

Week 2
In the confusion surrounding my departure from Xinzhu, I didn’t have any opportunity to post an update about my progress for handstand push-ups. The second attempt on the first week started out really badly. I must have over exerted myself the previous week, because four days rest wasn’t nearly enough. For fear of more serious injury, I cancelled the first day’s exercise almost before it started. I decided to change to the middle column instead and try again on Wednesday, which was fine. The Friday session was also alright (8, 10, 7, 7, 10 reps), but the fact that I still found it difficult should perhaps be interpreted as a sign that I wasn’t fully recovered. Thus, since I skipped the first day of the week, my second attempt on the first week also failed, even though I did managed the two most difficult days.

Week 3
The third attempt was successful and not overwhelmingly difficult (my current record is 17 push-ups now, which was done on the second day in the last set). To summarise, I think this level is more appropriate. Next week, I will try to move on to the second week, middle column, but considering the way we travel around and that I spend a lot of energy on other stuff, I don’t think it’s very likely that I will make it. However, I have to start somewhere and I didn’t complete the first week on the first try other.
