Re: pushups and situps

matt, do a search on "grease the groove" (gtg)
however, if your numbers are not seriously low, this may get too boring/time consuming.

also, remember to overload when doing standard push-ups/sit-ups. put a weight plate (25lbs) on your shoulder blades for pu's and on your chest for su's.
