I wonder what I got for Christmas.....yep, the perfect push-up! As part of my core workouts I also try and add in some push-ups. Regular push-ups on a tile floor are not kind on your wrists and so the Perfect Push-Up seemed like the, well, perfect solution!
After reading the instructions (all of a couple of minutes), I set about doing a few sets on Sunday night, they feel great and definitely focus more on technique with less stress on the wrists etc. It was a good start, which can slowly build into bigger sets.
BAD NEWS......the next day my chest was aching big time and I had a 4200 yd swim workout coming in the evening. Until I get used to the push-ups, it will certainly have to come when I have a day off of swimming as my chest was completely trashed after the swim sessions today and yesterday! Hopefully in the long run the push-ups will have a positive influence for swimming and general fitness....just not at the moment :-(
- Got to ride the trails at Marine Corp Base Quantico yesterday at the Quantico Epic....50 miles of awesomeness despite the muddy trails. Gradually feeling like I have recovered from the #bestbikegameever . . . . . . #marathonmtb #parvillacycles #alchemybicycles #IFB #quanticoepic #cycling #mtbracing

- Kind of a rough day at 6hrs at Woodstock. First 3.5 hrs were fine (even with a 10min stop for horses on the trail) and then stomach shut down. Probably related to stomach bug earlier in the week. Decided not to head out for another lap. Great trails though and a good race from Joe's Bike Shop as always. 📸: @dchammerette . . . . #6HAW #parvillacycles #mtbracing #mtbmarathon #IFB #patapsco #mtb
