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 :-(
- Post run functional strength work...this season I'm taking a more holistic view of my #swimbikerun & ensuring that strength work doesn't get skipped. . . . #triathlon #ironman #salmingrunning #IFB #triathlete #2020goals #running

- Still reflecting on @gravel_worlds from this past weekend. 150miles of primo gravel in Lincoln NE with 10,000ft of climbing. It was hard but I went for it and utimately paid the price in the last hour when I cracked, really cracked. Crawled to the finish just over 9hrs after starting.....but yes it was fun! . . . . . #gravelworlds #gravelride #IFB #parvillacycles #cycling #vandessel #lincoln
- First cross race of the season at #AACX today....always a tough race when you are the race director as well but had a solid race for 4th in the Elite Masters. . . . . . #IFB #cyclocross #parvillacycles #vandessel #tifosioptics #pactimo #industrynine
