Gini, how were you doing your one-armed pushups?...
With difficulty! They're really not pretty and I'm really not good at them, but I'm trying. I shove my non-pushing arm against my side to try and hold that side up while i dip with the other arm. Also, my feet are a little wider than a standard pushup.
Never even heard of these FitDeck cards! These are Definitely going on my shopping list!
I swear by them. Been using them now for over a year and I love em'. It's taken many years for me to realize that I can't/don't care to stick to any one particular "workout" plan for more than a few weeks. I love randomness and not really knowing what my workout will be for the day. The FitDeck cards work great for me. I've got 16 sets of them and just randomly mix and match them. Do at least 30 cards at the advanced level and you'll get a great workout. Hope you like em'!
My last seated row was Nov. 8th. I did 85 lbs for 3 minutes 19 seconds. Today I did 93 lbs for 3 minutes 31 seconds. both sessions ended in failure on the positive rep.
I'm continuing to show results that confirms intense exercises performed occasionally will produce strength gains.
I want to make it clear though that I'm not suggesting that this is all you need or want to.
I am suggesting that it makes for an acceptable minimum required.
I've added a twist to the program. I did a reverse grip tricep push down. I'm adding some isolated arm exercises to the program because the smaller muscles recover faster therefore I can work them again sooner. I'll see what happens.
Today is my rest day; my legs, butt, and shoulders are blasted from yesterday's kettlebell workout (swings, cleans, and presses). I'm doing hourly joint mobility stuff (arm swings, 50% speed shadow kick-boxing, and the like) just to keep from getting too lethargic.
