Anyone have success with improving pushups by greasing the groove? I've been eating primal (actually autoimmune Paleo) for a year, so I have the diet down. But I'm new to primal fitness and push-ups are hard (so are planks and most likely pull-ups - I don't have a pull-up bar). I can do about 20 regular pushups before collapsing so that puts me in the hand/knee push-up category - I can do about 40 of those. Over the weekend, on my non LHT days, I decided to grease the groove by doing random sets of 10 regular pushups throughout the day - one day I did 130 and Sunday I did 180. Today, which is a LHT day, I regressed on my hand knee pushups to only being able to do 30. Is it too soon to see any improvement - probably yes. Should I continue to grease the groove on my off days? How long until I can see improvement? (I'm not overweight - I get concerned that Im underweight and want to put on 10-15 lbs of lean muscle.)
No announcement yet.
Push Ups are my nemesis
