I don't do push-ups every day. But I've been doing a lot of push-ups and chins since the beginning of the year. I've noticed something that I cannot explain; but I know there is someone here who can. On push-up days I usually do 4 or 5 sets spread throughout the day and evening. In the starting sets, I'm barely able to pump out 71 or 72 (which is really the best I've ever been and pretty darn good for an old fart.) But by far my best set comes at the end of the day, when you'd think my arms should be wilting. On July 21 my set counts were 71, 71,71, 83. And yesterday I did 72, 72, 72, 72, 90. I'm stunned really and don't understand the biological explanation for why my last set should be my best. Someone on the forum has the answer.
