#60 July 2017 Fitness Update

What goals did I hope to achieve this month and did I achieve them?

Set baseline against 2 cross-fit work-outs from here. Completed. I set bench-marks for 3 work-outs.

Get up to 7 chin-ups without stopping. Completed. Managed to do 7 without getting down.

Set a baseline for chin-ups in a minute. Did not complete. 

Get up to 30 press-ups without stopping. Did not complete. 

Any lessons / thoughts?

The most important thing... I am really enjoying this. I'm quite competitive and like data and graphs to track progress. Using this approach I'm having good fun trying to beat my times.

I changed my approach slightly and focused on the work-outs rather than setting baselines for number of chin ups in a minute or max press-ups.


The work-outs might change over time but currently.
