Week 5 Exhaustion Test Results

Saturday morning I was curious about how many push ups I’d be able to do, so before breakfast (which is when I typically did my push ups before starting this challenge) I went for my max. I started out felling pretty good, but my arms gave out at 65. No change from my first test.
