                I'd love to try this challenge, but I'd definitely have to lower the weight of my normal curls. I usually do 25lbs with 10 reps per arm before I get exhausted. You think maybe 10lbs or 15lbs would be good?

                Also in terms of push-ups, I can usually do ~70 before I get tired (50 minimum), so I would probably split them into 6 sets.

                  ​@Redline , some changes, yes. It takes me longer to warm up when I'm doing sets of push ups. That's pretty common. I didn't get as sore as I thought I would.

                  But once I am warmed up, it's mentally easier to confront what seems like an enormous #s of exercises.

                  My arms feel a bit weaker than they did at the start of the challenge. That's about right for heavy duty training without recovery time. But that will be better in a few weeks.

                  I could continue the challenge another 10 days, but I would stick to 10 reps every minute on the minute. Even the smallest strokes eventually fell the tallest oaks.

                  Bender B. Rodriguez , give it a try! You can knock out the push ups easy. Do 3 sets of 50, take a break, then knock out the other sets. You've got this.

                  I did the same with the curls as neilarey .I did 150 curls per arm, alternating curls.

                  For the biceps curls, I backed the weight off for the first few days, until I was doing 15-20 or so curls per arm per minute. Then I increased the weight and decreased the reps as I felt ready. I eventually did pretty heavy curls in sets of 6 to 9 per arm for however many sets it took.

                  It really only takes determination. I think this challenge is about mental strength and endurance, not just physical strength.
