What the fuck, /fit/. What explanation is there for this reverse progress. Shit's got me pissed.

If you are DYEL, you are going to need rest days even for your push-ups.

>>35606506
Overtraining is real anon.

you get /fit/ while you dont do anything

rest/sleep is more important than lifting

>>35606544
>>35606564
>>35606571
But I'm resting at least a day in between each.
>>
>>35606506
You're surely joking, its been 4 days. Do you have no idea how the human body works? Just do a single set to failure per day or once in the morning and once at night and you'll see better results over time. That said you still need to rest your body if yore feeling over trained.
>>
>>35606618
Most people rest a muscle group at least 3 days.
>>
>not utilizing rest days properly
Never going to make it. Also, instead of doing the endless reps, start variations like archers and handstand.
>>

>been 4 days

>>35606506
Are you eating properly and getting enough sleep? You gotta get at least 8 hours of sleep anon.
>>
Listen up PFC Anon, three sets, one minute of rest, the first two to your last good rep (probably the second or third grindy one), third to actual muscle failure. Every other day or so for a few weeks and you'll max ezpz.
>>

>>35606624
I said every other day (sometimes it's every third day) so it's been about two weeks I'm not new to working out I didn't expect immediate gains but I also didn't expect to be making straight up reverse progress.
>>35606729
>PFC Anon
Made me chuckle unfortunately though I'm a PV2.
>>
>>35606789
I made sergeant largely on my PT score (just like everyone else), there's a million protocols out there for improving pushups but mine works and takes five minutes.
>>
that's just a shitty way to go about it

I heard of some progression scheme for max reps which was like you do 3 sets of half your max reps or something like that 2x a week and max out once every other week on reps or some shit. look it up

Here: I looked it up what I was talking about. This was a response to a guy asking about doing pretty much exactly what you're doing. Follow this.

"No, that's a bad way to do it

Step 1: determin max number of pushups
Step 2: perform sets of roughly 60% of that. When you start to get grindy, the workout is over.

Do the above twice per week

Every 6th workout or so, retest for max.

By keeping the sets short of afilure, you get far far more volume. So say you can do 30 max. 60% is 18. If you did a set of 30, you'd be so worked that on teh second set you might get 15. Ten 10. 55 total reps

How many sets of 18 do you think you can do. 5, 8, 10. Maybe 180 reps per workout.

Which do you think will give you better gains?"
