Cycle 17 - Results of CC, non-CC, HIIT and Push Up Challenge

Hey guys,

It's time to present you the results of cycle 17. This time I'll keep the post short and simple as there weren't any special trainings or so that week.

Area 1: My Convict Conditioning results


Still improving...

Area 2: Not CC related workouts

On day 3 I added my kettlebell circuit training to the CC routine. During the next week I'll start to post a series about kettlebell exercises and the benefits of working out with a kettlebell here at my blog! I hope you'll enjoy it! On day 5 I did 100 spiderman push ups to cover ab workout and the demanded push ups from the 30 day challenge at once. On day 6 I made several pull ups (different varieties), barbell rotations (the exercise recommended by Steve Hoyles, remember?) and 10 sets of 5-10 reps leg press (pyramid up to 620 lbs [280 kg])...afterwards I had a terrible muscle soreness at my butt...but variation in workout routines leads to even better results, so I'm fine with the sore muscles.

Area 3: HIIT cardio

I did 30 minutes of HIIT cardio twice that week. I'd just warmed up 6-7 minutes and added some sprints, uptempo runs, hill runs and stair sprints as high-intensity intervals until I'd filled the 30 minutes.

Area 4: The 30 Day Push-Up Challenge

Day 13: 85 push-ups
Day 14: 90 push-ups
Day 15: 95 push-ups
Day 16: REST
Day 17: 100 push-ups
Day 18: 105 push-ups
Day 19: 110 push-ups
Day 20: REST

That's all for cycle 17.

Cheers,
Andi
