Let me start off this post by saying, the push-ups I do are mostly done on my knees and when I do pull-ups, they are done with one leg kicked out on a chair (you still used you upper body like crazy but it isn't quite as hard). It is all still very intense but doing the moves like that, make it so you can steadily build the muscle up, instead of just struggling.
(The pull ups go something like this)
On Monday I did an hour long workout that consisted mostly of pull-ups and push-ups. It was really hard but I enjoyed it a lot, I pushed myself and it payed off because by the time the workout was over and I had completed 85 pull-ups and a whopping 201 push-ups! After the workout I went and told my husband, whose reaction was something along the lines of...'You did what...!?' This is only the second time I have done this workout, the first time I forgot to write down my numbers (sad!) so I don't have anything to compare my progress to but I'm excited to see how far I can push myself and hopefully I'll have even more progress to report soon!
