    Question Convict Conditioning / Pushup Q's

    Primal Fuel
    Hi everyone,

    Im in week 2 of convict conditioning. Doing wall pushups I just did 2 sets of 30. This is much harder than you might imagine! In the 2nd set my arms were getting a bit shaky, and as I progressed the left one in particular really 'wobbled' on the push out -- I leant into it more (ie put more weight on) and thi seemed to help, but then the left shoulder at the front started to feel like it was being worked hard.

    So...

    Is pushing on through shakes a good or bad idea?
    Is that shoulder thing the wrong muscles being recruited, or maybe just an imbalance becoming noticeable? (i am very weak in the left shoulder).

    Many thanks!

    In the book Coach Wade points out that movements should be controlled. Working though a movement and pushing yourself is a good thing though. It does not sound like you are ready to progress yet.
    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

    Yes. So do you think I should quit when the shaking starts and progress more slowly Dirlot?

    thanks,

    Keep in control, maybe go a rep or two but stay focused on the movement.

    It sounds like you are unbalanced between your left and right side. Keep working at this, and it will balance out over time.

    I would stop if the shaking is that bad. Be patient, the gains come quickly at the beginning, there is no need to push that hard. Are you doing the New Blood routine? Make sure you give yourself plenty of rest. Your body is busy making changes to adapt to the stress you have placed upon it.
