Wednesday 22 May 2013: PU DROP SETS

PUSH-UP DROP SETS

Today we'll be applying a popular weightlifting technique to a bodyweight exercise. The concept is simple: perform a set of hard push-ups, then immediately perform a set of an easier push-up variation, then immediately perform a third set of an even easier version. This workout is tough; do not underestimate it. Keep the reps low, especially early in the session, to avoid burnout.

Complete as many drop sets as possible in twenty minutes.

Advanced:
  • Feet Elevated PU
  • Regular PU
  • Knee PU
Intermediate:
  • Regular PU
  • Knee PU
  • Countertop PU
Basic:
  • Knee PU
  • Countertop PU
  • Countertop PU (move feet closer to the countertop)
