    That would be great! I'll have to change my workout eventually...

    ALSO!

    The girly pushups are just stupid. I'm on the track team too, not cross-country though. I do sprints and long jump. I can do regular pushups pretty quickly (when I first started I couldn't even manage one, though ) but I'm still struggling with the triangle ones. Oooouch.
    Spymonk is right. It's not the speed that you do them, but the efficiency. Perform the entire motion from as close to the ground that you can bring yourself without eating it, to a fully outstretched arm.

    Performing the full range will be more effective. I always thought that doing push ups very quickly and intense like would increase raw power endurance. If that's what you're looking for, though, then you're probably better off going straight until you fail, or doing sets of claps or box push ups...


    That's a good thing to do every once in a while, even for a hardcore endurance guy like me. Every once in a while, instead of doing four sets of a specified number of push ups (25), I'll just do one set until I fail completely, skip a set, then do another set until i fail, then skip the last as well. If that made any sense, that is.



    I accidentally broke my boxes today. I could say that I am so strong that my off explosion just broke the box, but instead I'll tell you the truth; I stepped on it while it was on it's side, and one of the sides broke off.

    Ohs wells.

    Keep eating so many dogs and you're bound to be Communist

    Well, all the basic push-up positions have been covered so I'll go through some push-up excersises that I learned in basic.

    The Autobahn - It's real simple and you can use any push-up you'd like. To do the autobahn you start at one end of a room or hallway, your feet against the wall and knock out 50 push-ups to get on. Then you bring your feet up to your hands and extend until you reach the front leaning rest once more, then you knock out ten push-ups and keep doing that until you get to the end of the room/hallway and it takes 100 push-ups to get off the Autobahn

    The Inch worm - Basically an easier version of the Autobahn. You start at one end of a room/hallway, assume the front leaning rest and pump out ten push-ups. You then bring you feet to your hands and extend your arms to form the front leaning rest once more, you then do one-five push-ups for every time you move

    The Door Gunner - Basically the same thing as the vertical push-up. Place your feet against the wall so that you are vertical, your hands positioned to the size of the rear apperture of a M-60D (A little smaller then the diamond) and door sets of four (Example: 1, 2, 3, 1 1, 2, 3, 2...etc.)

    Then for full body, there's front-back-go's, but you need another person for that. They call front, you do push-ups, back = sit-ups/flutter kicks however you fell and go is just get up and jog
