The Push-Up Daily Challenge

    Did my ILIT: Impromptu Loadless Isometric Training 3 times, 1 before my workout then after it & after 10 minutes of Kettlbell swings.

    Which are;

    1. LOWER LEG ISOTENSION Tense the calves and lower legs hard. (It can be tough to get the knack of this, at first; lifting the heels half an inch off the ground will help.) 1 set of 1-2 seconds

    2. THIGH ISOTENSION While standing upright, tense the quadriceps and hamstrings hard. The legs can be either locked, or bent. (You can even perform this seated.) 1 set of 1-2 seconds

    3. GLUTEAL ISOTENSION After the thigh tension, tense and squeeze the gluteal muscles together as hard as possible, without moving the hips or thighs. 1 set of 1-2 seconds

    4. STOMACH ISOTENSION Smoothly exhale; once the air has left your lungs and the stomach is drawn in, then tense the abdominals hard. There is no need to bend forward. 1 set of 1-2 seconds

    5. LATERAL TORSO ISOTENSION Pull the shoulders down in their sockets and tense the lats (under the armpits) hard. You do not need to spread your shoulders out for this drill. 1 set of 1-2 seconds

    6. PEC ISOTENSION Pull the shoulders forward in their sockets and tense and squeeze the chest muscles hard. (You don’t need to move your arms much.) 1 set of 1-2 seconds

    7. ARM ISOTENSION Holding the arms slightly bent or straight, tense the biceps and triceps hard. You also have the option of making a fist, and tensing your grip. 1 set of 1-2 seconds

    Using the Iso-Trainer:

    Doing my own version of this routine


    Which are;
    Zercher Squat Bottom Position:
    Strength: 3 set of 3 secs
    Strength/Hypertrophy: 3 sets of 6 secs
    Hypertrophy: 3 sets of 21 secs

    Deadlift Bottom Position;
    Strength: 3 set of 3 secs
    Strength/Hypertrophy: 3 sets of 6 secs
    Hypertrophy: 3 sets of 21 secs

    Shoulder/Over Head Press Bottom Position:
    Strength: 3 set of 3 secs
    Strength/Hypertrophy: 3 sets of 6 secs
    Hypertrophy: 3 sets of 21 secs

    10 minutes of Kettlbell swings where I did 180 reps with a 20kg Kettlbell.

    So starting off with the zercher squat with my feet pointing outward and I didn't feel much back pain most of it, only when I didn't feel I was paying attention. So I feel I'll keep trying like this, though felt I wasn't low enough, will keep experimenting with it.

    Quick question, with me doing squats with feet point outward, like a triangle, than inward, like a box. Is that a bad way to squat? What do you guys think?

  5. Good to see you're still going with this!

    I suppose I never officially quit this thread: I'm doing 100 push-ups most days. :)

  7. Yeah, even though it's not push-up related.

    Good one on the push-ups.

    Thanks but I'm fine to do actual pushups. I'm trying to work on my form with harder ones. I have tried inclined pushups but they don't really do much.

    Its the consistency that makes the difference. Swinging kettle, sets of push-ups, doing handstands, what matters is that its done every day.

    150 push-ups and 30 chin ups in sets of 25 and 5 sprinkled throughout the day.

    Feel good, though felt I wasn't as hard as I've felt with my Squats and wasn't up right with it either. Will remember to keep up with a straight back next time.

    Found some shoes to wear with the straps so that it doesn't hurt my feet, though they are running shoes and wondering if I should invest in lifting shoes, what do you guys think?
