Pretty fun training session today. I've never done weighted pushups before this so I didn't really know what to expect. What my training partner and I did was put the plate on our back and do reps until it started to grind, then took the plate off and kept going. I just counted the total reps, but probly the last 5-6 were unweighted.
I was surprised at how well I did because I almost never do pushups, and my training partner is in the army, so of course he does approximately 24 billion pushups per week. He started off really strong but his reps dropped off a lot quicker than mine. My guess is the extra weight was more difficult for him since he's a lot lighter than me.
The sled drags were something new as well. I've pushed a sled for conditioning about 3-4 times before, but never pulled one. My partner had exactly zero experience with sleds whatsoever. We started out with and extra 44 lbs on the sled, but after a few pulls we tried it with just 22 lbs (these were 10 kilo plates) and found that to be a lot better, basically because we could run instead of a jog with the weight.
We moved pretty quickly with the pulls, only resting a few seconds after the other guy finished before the next guy started. We will be keeping these for conditioning in the future
