I try to do something everyday for about at least an hour that gives the tired part of my body a rest till I can work that part again.

In my “yout” I was able to do 50 strict full up and down chin ups in a row. Past injuries since changed what I can do but through this forum and other sources, it is good inspiration to work at keeping fit.

Metaldad, I will look at those books you posted if they are at the library.

Darn, I’ve looked at those pushup bars many times, now I will go and get them. Walmart has them on sale for $15.
atgatt you cant beat the push up bars mate! i do 5 sets wide 5 sets shoulder width and 5 sets narrow! about 6 inches apart all to failure it blows the triceps up like balloons!!

I wonder what the optimum push up, pull up, dip type regiment would be, that would'nt
hinder your speedbaggin'? I know that after any weight training, heavy push/pull up workouts, it'll make you tight and more lethargic.
This would be a great question to pose to ScissorHands, he maintains a good physique and does some kick-ass baggin'.

fingers, when you say push up bars, are you talking about simple bars that are raised off the floor and don't rotate as you do the pushup? Like these:

Because I will try those and not the Perfect Pushup that rotates, after seeing this:

TJ, I just think I have front shoulder problems, nothing to do with what I'm doing in exercising I don't think.

Today I had a PICC line put in my right arm to feed me antibiotics from a jaw infection I've been trying to beat. The good news is the Dr said I could hit the bags even with it in. Not today though because it is sore. Maybe I'm the first to ever hit the bags with an IV attached to me. "Cool".

I've been mixing push ups into my daily workout routine for abut the past three months and I'm happy with the changes I'm seeing to my body.

I grew up playing hockey and soccer and snowboarding, which tends to develop your legs and core while leaving your upper body mostly untouched. Combining something so simple as push ups with a little other exercise on the beach, I've been able to bulk my arms up quite a bit over these past 3 months or so... a lot more than I would have guessed. I got so wrapped up in these complex exercises I read about in the mags and see other people doing, that I forgot about this simple exercise, that probably became so popular in the first place because it works.

hey man the problem is is that your not increasing them. that means to increase about 10 times daily until the weekend, then rest. plus you should do sit ups and crunches they help your stomach and chest also back pushups they hurt but there freakin worth it hope i helped bye.

best legal steroids
