I set a challenge for myself in the end of December to accomplish 4000 squats and 2000 push-ups for the month of January.
Instead of doing sets daily I focused on 4-5 days a week aiming for a total of 200 squats and 100 push-ups a day.
January has come and gone and I did 4000 squats and 2000 push-ups. Keeping it simple I was able to workout essentially every other day in January and make big strength gains. I started doing sets of 40 for squats and 20 for push-ups. By the end of the month I was doing sets of 100 for squats and 40 for push-ups.
This took MINUTES A DAY!
It really is amazing how simple working out can be if you just begin.
