So I got another one of those interesting comments that made me stop and spit out my coffee as I was reading it …
I had posted a picture of myself doing a Hindu pushup on my fingertips, and a contact of mine responded with the following (this to my latest rant on the dude who asked me to “stop, stop, stop with emails”) …
And while I couldn’t help but laugh, this sort of thing is typical of people who can’t actually DO the thing.
I didn’t ask this dude if he can actually hold the position in question – but I bet you anything that given his comments, he probably CANNOT.
The “upward dog” position is hard enough to hold if you’re fit … especially for time, and especially on your palms.
And when you do it on your fingertips, or take one hand anyway – or even some of the fingers of one hand away – well – you just amped the difficulty level of this by about a 10.
And that’s if you can even get into position – most lardasses (and being I’ve never seen this guy, I have no idea what his current fitness levels are) can’t even get into the position, let alone HOLD for any length of time.
Anyway, here are a few more “faggoty” (for those of you NOT in the know) positions you can hold that will get you in super, super shape (and will probably kick your ass from here to you know where even if you consider yourself IN TOP shape, and have never done these).
One, the “table pushup”. This one is another one of those positions that is hard enough for most people to get into, let alone HOLD for any length of time.
To do this, simply get on your hands and feet – and make a “table like” position with your hands and feet – while keeping your back STRAIGHT … and HOLD for time (if you can even get into position).
I’ll bet you dollars to donuts that the vast majority of folks out there probably CANNOT get into this position properly the first time they try it – let alone HOLD for any length of time.
And when you do it on your fingertips – well – let me just say be WARNED, hehe.
Second, the reverse pushup – where you basically get on your back and push yourself up as you would in a bridge, but in a pushup like manner.
Even those of you that can bang out pushups like no-one business will probably have a tough time with this one, hehe.
And third, but NOT least … the “arms extended pushup” which some people have (literally) reported falling flat on their face when doing it.
To do this, simply extend your arms and legs out from your core as far as possible, and then pushup from that position.
I’d suggest NOT doing this on your fingertips when you first do this, hehe.
And those are three “faggoty” (for some of you, at any rate) positions that will get you in great great shape – NO pun intended whatsoever – and for NO reason other than fitness (get your mind out of the gutter if it did indeed get there. Hehe).
More such “faggotty positions” – and PUSHUPS originating from none other than these positions in my new bestseller Pushup Central. If you want to get in great shape – then this really IS a course you MUST check out – right here – https://0excusesfitness.com/pushup-central/
And that’s that for now. Back soon!
P.S. – Name calling, “dissing” and putting something is typical of those that cannot DO the thing. As Emerson said, do the thing, and you’ll have the POWER. And I don’t know what side of the fence this dude stands on, and neither do I care to – but what about YOU, my friend? I know which side I’m on – but do YOU?
P.S #2 – More on the “China tom tommers” coming up tomorrow perhaps – I keep meaning to write about it but I get interrupted just about every time I do so! Hehe.
P.P.S – Is it even yoga? Ah, but I tire of educating these folks over and over again … Yoga shmoga indeed! LOL.
