Is that the goal or are the breathing pauses to long. I would say you’d have to breathe at some point, I couldn’t imagine holding my breath for 40 reps :slight_smile:


#384

no i can’t hold my breath for 28 reps, i usually breath in on the upward part of the push up, and a breathing pause is holding a plank variation and breathing

the goal is 40 without breathing pauses and at the same day 1x1 200 kg DL, so far i have done 34 push ups straight

i’m not too worried about the push ups part of goal, but it’s freakin hard to up the DL

fasting blood sugar 5.8 mmol/l
morning weight 90.6 kg, fat (according to scale) 16.2 %, muscle mass 34.6 kg

i have been modest with carbs and done my 16/8 IF and no alcohol but weight and fat loss have plateaued. but i did bring 8 eggs as a snack one day and then i had 4 eggs the other days, so i guess that puts me on maintenance caloric intake.

i will try and extend the fasting to at least 17/7 and decrease carbs even more and eat only 2 eggs with a bell pepper or a carrot as a snack. let’s see where that goes. fasting is not that hard anymore i’m just tied to my working schedule.

i am a bit concerned about my fasting blood sugar, it’s quite often up at 5.8 mmol/l, i thought it was due to wine consumption or pastries, but even when i have constricted the intake of such it’s up at 5.8 mmol/l. am i prediabetic?

Fasting and dieting is counterproductive to your goals don’t you think?


#387

it might help with the push ups part of my goal but not so much with the DL. i guess that i could consume a lot and become very fat but build some 20 % muscle on top of the fat gain and then much more easily reach my DL goal. that’s why i have included an absolute strength measure and a relative strength measure in my goal, to keep my weight reasonable.

reason i want to diet down is related to my high fasting blood sugar values, and i try to get that in order without loosing strength in the DL. also i’ve heard that it’s hard to build significant muscle when you are above 12 % body fat. so once i get to say 10% i’ll crank up my protein intake.

Hey man looks like every thing is moving well.
How do you plan your DL sessions?
And finally have you considered doing some push ups after DL sessions so you get used to doing it together with the DL.


#393

my goal is to do the DL and the push ups on the same day, but i might take a couple of hours between, prolly easier to do the push ups first, not very long recovery on those

morning weight 88.6 kg and body fat according to scale 15.0%
ffasting blood sugar 5.2 mmol/l,
waiste circumference 93.5 cm
us navy body fat 19%
i wonder if not the us navy is a little bit off, i have quite broad waiste and shoulders, that could skew the estimate
