    Your reply was one of the best I've seen to a cheeky answer.

    Keep going with your training.

    But don't neglect your legs. A physiological truth is that if you train your legs the rest of your body will benefit.

    Would be bodybuilders who work only shoulders arms and chest don't make the same gains as those who do squats etc.

    There's some kind of physiological trigger to do with the legs.

    Look at someone who is very very ill - they lose all the muscle in their legs and have sparrow like pins.

    Anyway press ups - if you aim to do 40, then when you count them in your head start at 40 and work down.

    You'll be too busy counting down to work out how many are left to worry. Once you hit zero any you do will be a bonus.

    When I went green again a couple of years ago I used this trick and beat all 70 of the intake - I was 39 then.

    Stephen Hawkins could count down in reverse and know how many are left to do but he doesn't do many press ups these days.

    Good luck and keep the sense of humour :D :clap:
