Sean’s shredding the calories now. If you are comfortable doing the dips (nor count pre-requisite) today’s workout will be a cinch. Pullups help you get the feel of the transition. With practice you will get used to using your legs less and do most of the workout relying on your arms.
Like all bodyweight exercises trunk strength or core weight plays a big part
Your plans and situps will strengthen and help with practice. Tension on your elbows gets better with more conditioning or training. Joint strength takes more conditioning than muscles strength does to build. Doing the reverse action, or pushing up from the flood more slowly will help increase your joint strength and in time you’ll never notice it any more. You can also try holding or flexing your shoulders, chest and back, back as much as possible and this take the pressure off your elbows. Don’t give up, believe and achieve.
Keep practicing refine your skill
The push-up is as close to a perfect exercise as can be. The more pushups you do the easier the variations are. Keep practicing until you build the necessary strength and coordination. When you place your hands in closer the emphasis is on your triceps, when you place your hands at a wider stance or in the diamond hand, your emphasis is on your chest. Keeping your feet wider apart makes the push up easier. Letting your elbows come out away from the body is fine some trainers say it develops more pectoral muscle.
If you are looking for more difficulty to practice on, a one-arm push up is hard to keep your form and it’s better to practice a one-arm hand stand pushup has more benefits.
Many of the exercises in the 30-day challenge use plyometrics, that is jumping up during the rep. You get more elasticity out of the muscles and more workout for each rep, like jumping up from a squat.
Eat right, drink plenty of water, stretch and go. Namaste. (see video).
