i found out about these a little bit ago and they are legit. i use them for cash-in and cash-out sets


-I call them Hand Release pushups or HR pushups-
instead of a regular up and down pushup, at the bottom of your pushups you set your body on the ground and raise your hands off the ground symbolizing full depth. immediately after you push yourself back up like a regular pushup. this does two things: it makes the pushup harder because it eliminates momentum and it causes you to go 2 or more inches lower than usual. do a set of 100 or so and tell me what you think

cheers mate!! gonna add this 2 workout 2nite!

@adewitt17 - it's just a regular pushup but when u get to the bottom, touch the floor with your chest and lift your hands off the floor like your balancing on your chest, then push back up in a normal way.

Cheers on the exercise.

I've always been an advocate of full range of motion push ups. I always go from full lockout to chest-to-floor.
