Anyone here good at self-discipline?


#41

Im in pretty good shape (humblebrag), but 100 consecutive BW pushups will cause form to drop after 60-70 in like 90% of people…

Best off squatting, benching and C+J to get functionally hench imo
EDIT + pullups are your friend


#42

Not saying dont do pushups btw - as xylo says, its a great exercise, shapes your butt nicely too - just think 100 consecutive is overkill!


#43

god no. I think the knowledge that whatever I do will end in failure prevents me from beginning most things (or finishing them if I’ve started)


#44

It’s def not with the intention of ripping out 100 daily. It’s just about getting your body into a place where it’s doable really. Coz yes you’re right hitting that a lot would suck for the joints


#45

god you’ve made it really complicated now :frowning:

going to do nothing


#46

Sorry buddy, didn’t mean to do that

this has some good starting points in for body weight exercises that you can do at home/ in the park!


#47

@_Em can you make these lists on Wunderlist recurring for daily tasks or do you have to re input them every day?


#48

I use an app called Habit for that stuff- and you can set stuff to be daily, so many times a week, weekly, monthly etc.

thanks :slight_smile:

ooo this is cool it makes a nice diiiing noise when you complete one. mmm very satisfying!

Wow this pointless self-indulgent thread wasn’t pointless after all


#51

Neither did I when I was 30. I’ve now been living happily with someone wonderful for sixteen years.


#52

aww that’s great. Maybe there’s hope for me too!


#53

Undoubtedly.

You should probably take up cycling. :smiley:


#54

I’ll have to stick to running I’m afraid.


#55

Bam, if you can do Eddie Honda’s Hundred Handslaps, you can do 100 pushups.com


#56

Sometimes I can be, but I think that self-discipline is best in moderation.


#57

wait, is his first name really Eddie?


#58

This is one of my favourite apps I use it nearly every day.


#59

It is as far as me and my mates were concerned growing up.

Turns out it’s actually Edmond! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E._Honda
