/ Press Up Challenge
not as yet, still trying to get my head around this one: 5 x hand clap pushups every 30secs for 10mins.
That sounds like a brutal challenge!! Does it not also do your wrists in though?
hasnt done mine - tho ive only made it to 7...
a good warm up is vital.
im not sure. i think for real world applications (depending on what ones 'real world' is of course), power production needs to be progressively stretched out towards endurance. especially for something like a plyometric as it pretty rapidly hits a threshold - the next step is to make that threshold last longer (for endurance based stuff at least).
but yeah, its gotta be based off solid actual power production first.
i think what the 5/10 clap-push sort of thing does is train recovery as much as power, in the context of power.
and agree - shits n giggles is needed to keep things interesting.
Definitely a good progression, if a little straining on the shoulder/back.
In fact that's a good reminder, I think I'll train them again for a bit :)
It feels much better to be doing sets of 6-12 one armers than doing countless normal ones.
Managed 1:50! Loved it though, will try again tomorrow!
The equation for breaking thresholds applies same for BW as for loaded weight: increase resistance, speed, duration, complexity and stress.
Lots if ways to upscale pushups without adding load; use rings/med balls, raise the feet, destabilize the feet and hands, race the clock, pre-stress, increase range of motion etc.
let your kids sit on your back, they get heavier as you get stronger, if you want to mix it up jut have more.
I was able to do those when I was a teenager during karate sessions.
Maybe if I did not do these then I would not have shoulder impingement today.
