    Since I started my new streak I've been doing push-ups almost everyday, would love to continue this pattern.

    Today I did 60 push-ups (20 x 3).

    Love to see all the dedicated people here, keep it up!

    5 DRILLS (B)

    1. SR press (middle) 4 sets of 6 secs

    Hold your hands interlinked in front of you. Brace yourself. Once you are set, press the hands together with maximum force for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise.
    Muscles trained: Chest, biceps

    2. Door horizontal row 4 sets of 6 secs

    Stand perpendicular to a sturdy doorway, and buttress your forearm against the wall. With your other hand, grip the inner doorframe. Brace the body. Once you are set, pull hard backwards for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise.
    Muscles trained: Upper back, biceps, grip

    3. Door lateral raise 4 sets of 6 secs

    Stand in a sturdy doorway, and place the backs of the hands on the inner frames. Brace the body. Once you are set, press hard sideways for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise. This exercise can also be performed unilaterally, using the non-working hand to brace against the doorframe. Muscles trained: Shoulders

    4. SR abdominal press I 4 sets of 6 secs

    Bend forwards, placing the palms on the knees. Brace yourself. Once you are set, press down hard on the knees. Try to use mostly abdominal force, thinking of the arms only as struts to transmit that force. Hold for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise.
    Muscles trained: Abdominals, hip flexors, chest, triceps

    5. SR thigh curl/press II 4 sets of 6 secs

    Lie prone on the floor. Bend your legs until the shins are approximately vertical. Loop one ankle behind the other, and brace yourself. Once you are set, push back hard with the front leg, while simultaneously pulling hard with the lower leg. Hold for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise. When the hold is completed, reverse legs and repeat.
    Muscles trained: Hamstrings (rear leg), quadriceps (front leg)

    Also Done

    ILIT: Impromptu Loadless Isometric Training". Which are;

    1. LOWER LEG ISOTENSION Tense the calves and lower legs hard. (It can be tough to get the knack of this, at first; lifting the heels half an inch off the ground will help.) 1 set of 1-2 seconds

    2. THIGH ISOTENSION While standing upright, tense the quadriceps and hamstrings hard. The legs can be either locked, or bent. (You can even perform this seated.) 1 set of 1-2 seconds

    3. GLUTEAL ISOTENSION After the thigh tension, tense and squeeze the gluteal muscles together as hard as possible, without moving the hips or thighs. 1 set of 1-2 seconds

    4. STOMACH ISOTENSION Smoothly exhale; once the air has left your lungs and the stomach is drawn in, then tense the abdominals hard. There is no need to bend forward. 1 set of 1-2 seconds

    5. LATERAL TORSO ISOTENSION Pull the shoulders down in their sockets and tense the lats (under the armpits) hard. You do not need to spread your shoulders out for this drill. 1 set of 1-2 seconds

    6. PEC ISOTENSION Pull the shoulders forward in their sockets and tense and squeeze the chest muscles hard. (You don’t need to move your arms much.) 1 set of 1-2 seconds

    7. ARM ISOTENSION Holding the arms slightly bent or straight, tense the biceps and triceps hard. You also have the option of making a fist, and tensing your grip. 1 set of 1-2 seconds

    Which I repeated 9 times.

    5 DRILLS (A)

    1. SR pull (high) 4 sets of 6 secs

    Hold your hands in a “monkey grip” above your head. Brace yourself. Once you are set, pull the hands apart with maximum force for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise.
    Muscles trained: Lats, triceps, grip

    2. Door horizontal press 4 sets of 6 secs

    Stand sideways in a sturdy doorway and lean forward, with your glutes supported by the inner frame. Place one palm on the opposite inner frame, at about chest height. Brace the body. Once you are set, press hard forwards for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise.
    Muscles trained: Chest, shoulders, triceps, abdominals

    3. SR pull (middle) 4 sets of 6 secs

    Hold your hands in a “monkey grip” in front of you. Brace yourself. Once you are set, pull the hands apart with maximum force for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise.
    Muscles trained: Upper back, triceps, grip

    4. Door top press 4 sets of 6 secs

    Stand in a sturdy doorway, and place the palms on the upper frame. If you cannot reach the upper frame, stand on a box or stool, or on the toes. Brace the body. Once you are set, press hard upwards for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise. This exercise can also be performed unilaterally.
    Muscles trained: Shoulders, triceps

    5. Wall squat 2 sets of 30 secs
    Sit down with your back against a sturdy wall. Ideally, bend the knees to a 90-degree angle, and hold the position, with your arms away from the legs.
    Muscles trained: Quads, glutes, hamstrings

    Decided to try for 6 seconds holds as the book recommending it for strength and hypertrophy. Think it helped me keep focus more on giving 100% tension and better focus.

    ILIT: Impromptu Loadless Isometric Training". Which are;

    1. LOWER LEG ISOTENSION Tense the calves and lower legs hard. (It can be tough to get the knack of this, at first; lifting the heels half an inch off the ground will help.) 1 set of 1-2 seconds

    2. THIGH ISOTENSION While standing upright, tense the quadriceps and hamstrings hard. The legs can be either locked, or bent. (You can even perform this seated.) 1 set of 1-2 seconds

    3. GLUTEAL ISOTENSION After the thigh tension, tense and squeeze the gluteal muscles together as hard as possible, without moving the hips or thighs. 1 set of 1-2 seconds

    4. STOMACH ISOTENSION Smoothly exhale; once the air has left your lungs and the stomach is drawn in, then tense the abdominals hard. There is no need to bend forward. 1 set of 1-2 seconds

    5. LATERAL TORSO ISOTENSION Pull the shoulders down in their sockets and tense the lats (under the armpits) hard. You do not need to spread your shoulders out for this drill. 1 set of 1-2 seconds

    7. ARM ISOTENSION Holding the arms slightly bent or straight, tense the biceps and triceps hard. You also have the option of making a fist, and tensing your grip. 1 set of 1-2 seconds

    Which I repeat 9 times and try to do a few more times through out the day. I do this as of the benefits from the book, which states;

    "BENEFITS OF ILIT Impromptu Loadless Isometric Training (ILIT) is not going to turn anyone into a strongman or a bodybuilder, because the loading reflex is too low (see page 81-83); however, it does boast multiple benefits. It tones the muscles; it improves the mind-muscle connection; it refreshes the soft tissues and reduces stiffness caused by inactivity. Squeezing the muscles also helps keep the body warm—we subconsciously do this during cold weather. The practice doesn’t need to be recorded, and the athlete can forget to use the method for months, guilt-free. Finally, because ILIT is brief, easy (even pleasant) to perform, and does not affect recovery ability, it can be practiced several times per day. Even small increases in strength will add up over hundreds of sessions per year to significant gains."

    Thanks. I started using a Jump rope from last year at least 3 times a week to help with my journey against PMO. It definitely helped.
    30 minutes jump rope
