Trying out more things, have a decent template for this six pack training but still testing. I didn’t like 5 x 8 but 5 x 6 is nice, and 30 total reps for an exercise is in the recommended range. The idea behind frequency press ups is to only do enough that you aren’t tired, and spread them across the day so there’s minimal fatigue. I’m not in the habit of them so i’ll have to tie them to an activity, like a set before preparing food or brushing my teeth, in order to remember to do 5-6 sets.

I’ll start the proper training on Feb 1st as that will mean the day after my “six week abs” will be my birthday.
