Runtastic Push-Ups Trainer

Recently when I was trying to get back into strength training mode, I wanted to start with Push-ups, but I got rusty due to not doing pushups from a very long time (almost more than a year). Hence when I wanted to get back to doing 10 to 20 pushups at a time, I downloaded this training app again on my phone, which helped me earlier in doing pushups regularly and reaching 20+ pushups goal in a single go.

This app basically relies on the proximity sensor of your phone and when you do a pushup you have to start the app and keep it under your face or nose and then do the pushup. When you come closer to the screen or even touch it both counts as a pushup. The exciting thing about it is that it has a challenge mode also where you can compete against hundreds of other real people doing the reps.

If I got you curious, you can download it here – Android | iOS.

Article I’ve been pondering upon —

Every successful relationship is successful for the same exact reasons – A really interesting article on relationships. A long but good read with more than a few practical nuggets on relationships. Get a cuppa coffee and read on.


What am I watching — This one is a keeper. Loved this interview of Karlie Kloss with Tim Ferriss. Karlie is amazing and not just with her beauty but with brains too. She runs a programme for 13-18-year-old girls who want to learn how to code. It’s called Kode with Klossy.

I was fascinated with the fact that being a supermodel and a super successful woman at the age of just 25 how amazing her thought process is. She jots down her thoughts on a notebook, churns them into ideas and then executes them one by one. That’s what a do-er do.

A great listen guys. Give it a go.


Quote I’m pondering on lately – 

“If you change what you believe is possible, you change what becomes possible.”

Saturday-Pentacle - Week 21 - 2017


Update of the week –

As I usually share these articles on whatsapp broadcast channel and also via email and social media. I think whatsapp currently have limited set of options in terms of engaging with you (my readers). So with that perspective, I want to get you onboarded on my new Telegram group which eventually be your one stop shop for all my articles, podcast episodes and much more.

Article I’ve been pondering upon —

Mental Models: How to Train Your Brain to Think in New Ways – This article from James Clear is so though provoking. This small article took me almost two days to read and go through the concept. But it was more than worth it. Once you read this article, It will force you to think about the new mental models which you don’t see through right now. Eventually forcing you to change the way you think literally.

This type of though process can stimulate your brain to see the world with a new perspective and look at any problem from a brain area which was earlier untouched, hence you sometimes are able to visualize the solution which you could never see before. A must read.


What am I watching —

Land Of Maybe – I’ve loved this short film by The North Face. 3 famed mountain climbers go on the adventure of riding a highly technical climb of a straight mountain wall in The Land of Maybe (Faroe Islands). I was amazed to know how one man can own an entire mountain in this part of the world.


Quote I’m pondering on lately – Today’s quote is from the James Clear’s article I mentioned above.

“The chief enemy of good decisions is a lack of sufficient perspectives on a problem.”

— Alain de Botton


Until Next Saturday!
