    hello everyone.
    I'm actually making a thread due to needing to write one in order to reply to a PRMC date someone else has posted with the same dates as mine.

    anyways as I'm here I'm looking for some guidance on training, more on the press ups/sit ups/pull ups.
    what is everyone else doing/ done to get through this, am aiming to max out bodyweight exercises.
    am currently doing them everyday just spread out throughout the day but my max isn't seeming to be going up. I am attending a outdoors bootcamp type thing run by a former royal so twice a week I'm beasted for an hour.

    Thanks in advance.

    haven't tested myself in a while but am getting 60-65 sit ups, 5-10 pull ups (more when rested) and only 30 ish on push ups. its my push ups I'm struggling with to be honest

    If you really want to start breaking through those PBs you need to train to muscle failure more often. Doing 60 odd press ups spilt evenly across the day will not increase you ability to do more.

    I believe Sean Corwill or something or other stated that practise does not make perfect, it just brings muscle memory.

    I cannot and do not train to the intensity of a lot of the lads on here and my stats show that but once a week I will absolutely blitz a press up session where I cannot do one more press up and struggle to do ten the next day. This in turn forces your body to become fitter and stronger in preparation for you doing that again thus allowing you to do more. I repeat with all body weight exercises.

    Rambling on again......

    I'm using apps that increase reps and sets based on what you achieve. They are called 100 push ups/300 sit ups/15 min plank and 100(!) Pull ups...

    Seen massive improvements as the last set is to failure every time, mix this in with 50m sprints in between excercises and you should break through
