90 Day Pushup Challenge Week 9, New Base Test!
*If you are new to this challenge or are recommitting and starting over; today would be perfect for that. Today’s work will serve as your new Base Test.
What you need to know and what needs to be done!
Step 1: Establish your base, or “working set” by finding your average. Find your Avg. by performing 3 Sets of Max effort unbroken pushups with 5 minute rests between each set.
Step 2: Take the average of those 3 numbers. This number will be your “working set” average for the month!
Step 3: Stay consistent with the work, listen to your body.
Monday: Base Test
Wednesday: 4 sets, 5 minute rests
Thursday: 3 sets, 5 minute rests
Saturday: 3 sets, 5 minute rests
Things to keep in mind for your Day 1 Base Test:

Keep hips in line with body for all reps.
Try to keep this work to the morning or evening if possible.
Must be Unbroken!
