i’ve been continuing with my phase II fitness program attempting to get to 100 consecutive push-ups and 200 consecutive sit-ups and it’s hard – especially the push-ups.
the push-up program i’m following is a 6 week program and i’ve been repeating the last week for a couple of weeks and can’t seem to get past 60-70 consecutive push-ups. i thought maybe i wasn’t giving myself enough time to rest before taking the test, so this week i took a whole week off before the test and i still max out at 70 push-ups. my overall strength is increasing because i can relatively easily do 250 push-ups with reps of 20-40 which would have been impossible before starting the program but i’ve hit a plateau on the total number of consecutive push-ups.
i’m sure some fitness nerds out there will tell me what i’m doing wrong. should i just keep repeating the last week of program until i break through the 70 push-up wall?
