Yes, there are probably myriad ways you could "ramp it up" But please take in to consideration the time, effort and mental stress that could entail. Find a sweet spot where you can handle the effort/restriction, and still lose steadily.
Great advice RadioJane. I find sometimes if I ramp up my exercises I look for and easily find reasons to skip it, so I just do my little number of reps, and have been able to keep it going for a few months now and am developing little muscles in my arms, so I'm happy.
