Week 4

Week 3 is now comfortably behind you and it's time to start Week 4. Continue by following the same column of exercises as you did last week.

At the end of Week 4 it will be time to perform another exhaustion test. You should know what to do by now - simply perform as many good-form pushups as you can comfortably manage before you're unable to perform another one. As per the end of Week 2, stress your system by all means, but please don't go beyond the safety limit.

The number of pushups you complete will determine which level of the program you'll start in Week 5. Make sure you perform this test within a couple of days of completing Week 4.
