Ya gotta love bodyweight exercises - ALL of them.
You can do them anywhere, anyplace, anytime.
Push Ups are a bodyweight exercise I LOVE!
Watch the Video below and then I have a CRAZY story for you regarding push ups and other bodyweight exercises....
That's the end of my quick workout with Joel Marion. It was at the end of a loooong night and Joel has been cranking away with his Underground Nutrition Tips so I KNEW that a fast and furious bodyweight workout would get the juices flowing.
When I started doing Push Ups I was in the 7th Grade. In fact, it was the summer before 8th grade as I vividly recall.
The neighborhood gang was hanging out one night and we all got around to arm wrestling.
I LOST EVERY SINGLE MATCH!
It was f**ing embaressing!
I went home that night and it was around 9:30 PM and I decided that every night before bed and every morning upon rising I would do 1 set of max push ups.
That night I did TWO PUSH UPS!
You read that correctly, there is NO typo there, 2 push ups! I collapsed mid way through rep # 3!
The next night I did 3 push ups, the following night was 4 push ups and I still recall the night I cranked out 7 push ups because the NEXT DAY I finally won my first arm wrestling match!
I was happier than a Pig in Mud! I was getting my ass handed to me for almost an entire week and once I got my first victory in arm wrestling I thought push ups were THE KING!
I'll keep the pull ups story for another time...
I wanna hear about your experiences with bodyweight training, maybe you have a vivid story as I do, well, step up and let's hear it!
