And the roar rang out last night – – as I was about to go to bed.
And if it wasn’t for the “kiddie” voice saying it and the bundle of pajamas that LEAPT at me, bedclothes and all – I’d be thinking Daniel Tiger actually showed up “in person”, hehe.
As my daughter sagely informed me “He’s not just an animal! He’s a human animal!”
So for those not in the know, that is one of my daughter’s favorite things to watch on the dumbphone.
Daniel Tiger, Katarine “Kat”, and I think … “Barbara the penguin”, given how well she does the penguin walk!
OK, I made that last one, but you get the picture … and point of this missive being?
Well, this – my friend – and a point brought home to me VERY SQUARELY during writing Pushup Central – and EVEN MORE SQUARELY while filming Kiddie Central is that the TIGER bend pushup – is a great, great way to get fit – QUICK!
Not to mention build control in your forearms and upper body like never before.
What is it, you ask?
Well, there are tons of sites on the internet showing you how to do it – – but be warned – – a lot are showing you the wrong way, and form, as on the Hindu pushup and certain other pushups (dive bomber and pike pushups being two others that come to mind) are even more important on this one than other styles of pushups (though don’t get me wrong – form is paramount on ALL Exercises, regardless).
Do the tiger bend pushup by getting into a regular tiger like position, and then lowering yourself down as you would in a regular pushup …
… and then FLATTENING your forearms out WITHOUT changing position – -and then going back UP from there.
This seemingly simple exercise will have most gym goers flat on their faces after a rep or so, if they can even do it.
Even you bonafide PUSHUP maniacs will find this to be a challenge done for high reps – – and when you take away an arm – – oh boy!
I’m currently perfecting the one arm tiger bend pushup – – a skill I WOULD NOT ADVISE you to try until you get good – very very good – – at the regular version – and by that I mean very good!
Last, but not least, this style of pushup won’t just fanastic control – – it will also give your CHEST a workout in ways you’ve never experienced before – – even from the Hindus – – especially on the “up” phase.
You will SEE what I mean when you do these pushups – and others mentioned in Pushup Central, which truly IS the most comprehensive course on pushups out there.
