    I've just been watching your push up progression video with interest, I'm working through Wade's CC programme at the minute and he pushes for knees and feet together while doing one arm pushups. Is this a realistic goal or is feet and legs apart the way to go?

    Thanks
    Do what you love and do it often. If you don't like something, change it. if you don't like your job, quit. If you don't have enough time, stop watching tv. If you are looking for the love of your life, stop, they will be waiting for you when you start doing the things you love. Stop over analyzing, life is simple. When you eat, appreciate every last bite. Some opportunities only come once, seize them.

    Coach Wade and I agree on about 99% of this type of stuff but one arm push-ups is a key area where we diverge. I firmly believe that a wide stance makes for a more sound one arm push-up than feet together. In my next book (which will be out in about 2-3 months) I present my case for why I feel this way.

    OK Al, here's my idea for your no-arm push-up--basically a flag with belly toward the ground...then let yourself down slowly (or the face don't like it) and back up again! Cmon, I know you can do it! If the regular one is the Dragon Flag (thanks Bruce Lee), what would we call this...caption contest...?

    On the other hand, this idea is probably a good example of how theory and practice really are different...

    An upside down dragon flag would be pretty remarkable. You'd still have to use your arms to hold the pole though, wouldn't you?

    I was thinking you'd lock your feet under something and keep hands behind your head.
    So it would be kind of like a hyperextension...I guess we could name it the Super-Duper-Hyper Extension No Arm Push-up!

    Gotcha. Sort of like a glute/ham raise (google it).

    What a tease! Mark BamaAla down for a copy on the day it's released...so impatient though.

    ETA: what about planche (sp?) push-ups? Are those part of the progression or are they left mainly as a gymnastic skill/exercise?

    As is typical with Dragon Door products, the ebook may be out a bit sooner. I'll keep you guys posted when I have more specifics. I'm glad you're excited for it though!

    As for the planche push-up, it is something that I touch upon briefly in the book, but it's not a major component.
