    There's only one way to settle this. You suck each other's cocks. And we all watch.

    Don't go looking for context, new pagers.

    I thought the decline press-ups were earlier than day 20 guys. Everyone calm down.
    I think Decks has lost ability to read/comprehend due to the amount of meat taking over his body.

    I mixed up incline/decline. Looking back I should have researched the different types of press up more thoroughly before I started on the crazy quest to do some press ups. I also alternate between calling them push ups and press ups with gay abandon, something I'm looking to change moving forward.

    I bet there is a difference between press ups and push ups. I usually put a hyphen in there as well.
    So much to learn.

    My research tells me that "press-up" is British and "push-up" is American. And yes hyphen seems mandatory.

    Although wikipedia seems to suggest that push-up is standard and that press-up is when the hands are wider than the shoulders placing more emphasis on the pectoral muscles.

    I'll be honest my head is spinning.

    To be honest, we've always called them push-ups here. I was only saying press-ups to fit in.

    I mean, you push your body up. With a pushing motion. It's a push-up.

    Yes, but you also have to lower your body down.

    Push-downs if you're in Oz, remember.

    I think the correct term is the "pull down under".

    Well that's day 5.

    Looking ahead I'm really dreading the two sets of 35.

    Everything beyond that is pretty grim to be honest. Think of those rock solid boosums though.

    I definitely need to lose some fat off my moobs. Having chest muscles makes them look so much worse. lol

    I'm not bad at diamond pushups after being forced to do them at the gym. When it starts to get into 30 of the fucking things though.

    I can manage a set of 15 of those before they start to actually hurt. Will be fun to fuck myself up trying 30.

    Done. That last 5 on the second set weren't nice.

    I propose a rest day every Sunday as I plan on getting hammered tonight and really can't be arsed with doing 60 push ups tomorrow.

    Well I got hammered last night and going down into my stale alcohol breath made that much harder than it should have been.
