20 thousand repetitions in 7 weeks

And we've crossed the 20,000 rep mark. Wow. That's almost 3,000 repetitions per week, as tomorrow marks the end of week 7. However, I still have a couple of lagging exercises that need a LOT of work in the final 35 days of my bodyweight transformation.

The results so far?

The biggest improvements have been in:
- my pushup endurance
- my bench press strength <= big surprise!
- my shoulder joint health <= significantly better when I thought it could cause overuse injury...but just the opposite...very interesting

Pullups and handstand pushup performance has come along slower than I had hoped.

Today's workout and total reps:

763 reps

300 squats
225 pushups
150 rows
65 burpees
23 handstand pushups

Here are a few more moves that burn 15 calories per minute:

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tip:
Stop dabbling. Get serious. Attack your #1 priority. Avoiding problems will not make the situation better. Take action and attack them head-on instead. Prepare for it tonight. Work on it first thing in the morning. Focus on big levers. Eliminate all else...

"When you put one of your life's goals above all others, things change. Situations that used to seem complicated are suddenly simple." – Mark Ford

Keep on pushing on! Never give up on solving the important problems in your life. You CAN do it!

Keep going,

Burning fats doesn’t only need diet supplements to take the job. It also requires healthy eating habits and a daily routine to boost up the metabolism. Strength exercise such as push-ups and weight lifting are the best exercises for burning fats and building muscles. Weights can convert fats into muscles thus making it easy to burn more fats.
