Those of us who are participating in the bender will get a look at the breakdown of their numbers by the end. For now, our Benders have been pushing diligently, and they've got the numbers to prove it. Here's the count for weeks 1-3!
WEEK 1!Driftwood: 610
Friendly Ghost: 399
Skateboard Slim: 518
Driftwood: 700 (1,310)
Rotjob: 760 (1,217)
Friendly Ghost: 691 (1,090)
Skateboard Slim: 746 (1,264)
Driftwood: 606 (1,916)
Rotjob: 655 (1,872)
Friendly Ghost: 776 (1,866)
Skateboard Slim: 290 (1,554)*
*Skateboard Slim took a few days off for healing, and then posted a monster day today, but that'll go on his Week 4 total. But if it were added to Week 3, he'd be a hair on a gnat's butt from overtaking Friendly Ghost.
Week 3 was a bit of a plateau week. We all underperformed compared to week 2, except for Friendly Ghost, who is literally half man, half bear, and half bison. He posted a number that is 120 push-ups higher than the #2 Bender and he missed two days last week.
Which brings up a relevant point: a lot of us have suffered from strain in these last few days, not just via muscle soreness, but from joint pain. It's just like running: we're picking up too many reps, too quickly. Make sure to pace yourself, try to keep your sets even, breathe, and STRETCH when you're done. Take a little bit of ibuprofen if you need it, and rub in some IcyHot at the end of the day.
We're halfway there, gentlemen. Let's see some magic this week. Let's see who's going to post the largest increase over this last week! (Skateboard has the biggest advantage, in that his number was the smallest.)
I'll post the awards after week 6. Great work, team.
NOW PUSH 'EM OUT.
