So, one of the guys who frequents the office gym had the bright idea for “the gang” to do a benchmarking session once a month as a way of tracking progress, and maybe inject a little friendly competition into our respective routines.
My reply was along the lines of, “Sounds good. Who’s gonna come in second?”
Who, me, cocky?
|4/7/09||Chinups||Situps||Pushups||Squats||Bodyweight||Total Reps||Total Volume|
The push-ups and pull-ups were done as single max-rep sets; the sit-ups were done as a two minute session on the incline bench (feet anchored, minimum incline), and the squats were done as a one minute session (I lobbied for two, but was outvoted).
We’re going to make this a monthly thing (first Tuesday of each month can be “Phat Tuesday” or something equally poorly-named), so that everyone can judge their progress; today was a combination of benchmarking and ass-kicking.
Hey, at least folks have something to shoot for. I just refuse to let ’em catch up.
