    push up master challenge

    Hi, so for the last couple days there are some very difficult push ups like power, clapping, and one arm. My question is should I go for this challenge only after making sure that I can do all the variations on the list? Or if I just follow the challenge faithfully I will be able to do clapping push ups on day 28 or one arm on day 30, even if I am only able to do the classic version at the beginning? Thanks!

    You can choose the easy level with 10 reps.
    Also as you seem to want to have stronger arms,you can choose to do 50 one arm overhead squats each arm,the reps may divide in maintanable sets,how sounds this with your dumbbell?It must be intense so you will have aerobic exercise also

      Avatar Problem is that I can't do even one rep of the difficult push ups I mention. Stronger arms? Yeah, sort of . I am still trying things out. I definitely need to start squatting in the future. I am doing 30 days of cardio blast now.

        Then maybe let this challenge for later.
        Do you lift?

          No
          I don't do weights. Yeah I know I am using a bit, but I generally avoid them.

            When I did the challenge, I did day 30 as elevated as needed...
            so one arm table pushup it was...
            It is better to do let's say 25 days as good as you can and make the rest as easy as you need to, than not doing anything.
            I liked the challenge very much, cause it was not boring at all...

                kandy I used to be able to do one arm push-ups, haven't done them in a while, so I might be able to assist you.
                Firstly, how is your base pushing strength? How many regular push-ups can you do? I'd recommend at least 20 (this goes for power and clapping push-ups also).
                Secondly, how is your "stance"? Do you keep you heels touching?

                  Kakarot I haven't done any push up for several months except last Monday when I did 20 consecutive wide grip push ups on the knees, going really low. I got exhausted after the 20 reps.

                  I am currently on day 3 of the tricep dips challenge and not planning to do push up before I finish. My heels don't touch and are usually shoulder-width apart.

                  Power and clapping are so hard and my palms feel like being glued to the ground every time I try to get my body up into the air. Is it a matter of my strength or is it technique? It will be cool if I can do those.

                    Then I would wait a little bit with the PUMaster...
                    You could go on with the 50 PU a day challenge done on your knees, trying to get to the regular form. When you are comfortable with regulars, then go for the MasterChall.

                    No need to hurry and set your focus on good form, instead of the rep count. It is best to spread the 50 over more sets in the beginning and stop when your form isn't good anymore.

                    Have fun!

                      HellYeah That was what I did when I started out my fitness journey at Darebee. I know I have to start it all over again now. I am mostly just being curious with the Push-up Master.

                      From my experience, I know how hard it is to do one strictly correct push-up. But back then once I was able to do it and then be as strict as I could with every single rep, even if I was just increasing 1 or 2 in a row every day, the improvement was huge and faster than ever before. It just felt pretty harsh, honestly.
