Recent off a current video through which he carried out 100 pushups and 50 pullups every day for week, YouTuber Lucas (recognized to his subscribers as Pigmie) upped the ante for his subsequent bodily problem, setting himself the purpose of doing 1,000 pushup reps in a single 24-hour interval.
“It is gonna be a protracted day,” he says, including that he hopes to finish all 1,000 reps in simply 12 hours. “If I do 100 each hour, I am going to get it achieved in 10 hours, in order that’s going to be the purpose, that is the technique right here. However I am already feeling fairly fatigued.”
When he reaches the midway level and completes his five hundredth rep, Lucas explains that the rising soreness in his triceps is making it more and more tough to maintain going, and at 700 reps, even with simply 300 left to go, every set is taking longer and longer to finish and his goal of 10 hours is beginning to really feel unrealistic.
“I really feel like I am not even utilizing my chest any extra, I actually really feel like I am solely utilizing [my triceps] for some motive,” he says. And as soon as he reaches his 1,000th pushup rep, the very very first thing he does is put his overworked triceps on ice.
“That really turned out to be approach more durable than I assumed,” he says. “First 100 reps felt nice, bought an incredible pump, the second 100 reps, good pump, 3oo reps, nonetheless a fairly good pump. Then after that, the pump began to only go away, and it began to only harm.”
Even so, he hit his purpose in simply eight hours. However after resting for a couple of days, he concludes that when it comes to constructing energy or muscle, there are higher methods. “I feel, for me, doing 1,000 reps in 24 hours wasn’t essential to see outcomes,” he says. “Actually, I do not know if I actually bought any outcomes.”
He provides that on reflection, he in all probability should not have pushed himself to maintain going regardless of his tricep ache, and encourages others to “again off,” enable themselves the time to get well, and construct a powerful base for train over time.
