I'm pretty sure they came out with something that could help....a clock.

I literally could not muster ONE more rep, shattered in a good way.
Great job.

I mentioned that I was puffing toward the end and hubby says, "nope, that was gasping!" I also had to pull in a slight deficit, since I wasn't at the gym with the standard Oly bar height

Ahhh I missed the last one and now I gotta sit this one out too. I don't do deads, ever. Partials yes, conventional deads, no.

I WILL be breaking 100 reps today with 170, thereby assisting Thor in regaining the top position.

All these things shall come to pass.

GL, are you taking a bucket along?

Not sure if I'd have made the 100 mark had I not had to break in order to wipe sweat out of my eyes so that I could see, but even 4 more reps would have been doubtful; I was secretly hoping to get the 100...it wasn't to be though.

I learned doing timed sets that it's all about pacing. In the Army we have to do as many pushups as possible in 2 minutes. The first time I did ok, but once I did them in sets of 10 and rested about 10 seconds in between I started killing it, even though when I rested I still had to stay in pushup position, I was just allowed to lift my butt up into the air.

It's probably more mental than anything.

Anyways, I wanted to put my goal on here because when other people know you're goal it makes you push harder. You already did an amazing thing getting 96, and no one here will argue that!
