Ron Jones Negative Push Ups
A DAY'S BREAK – Everything needed a rest.
DAY NINE - 21st February
6 sets of 2 negative push ups at the end of the day. 2 negative push ups are a lot easier to do than before and I can easily do 3, 4 or more.
DAY TEN - 22nd February
3 sets of 3 negative push ups
DAY ELEVEN - 23rd February
Negative push ups are becoming easier so a change of tactics in order. I think I should do them even slower with a ten count negative push up.
DAY SIXTEEN - 28th February
You may have noticed a skipped a couple days of recording my daily training. Mostly, I couldn't remember how many push up sets I did, as I'd start in the morning, then as soon as I got home, then between commercial breaks, then after half an hour on the computer. I still can't do a full push up. What I have noticed is that I can hold myself 5cm off the floor for about a second or so. I'm trying to push myself back up once I reach 5 cm from the ground, but first, I'm trying to lower myself then hold it for about 5 counts before I attempt to push back up again. My form is increasing as I've also done a few plank holds and the side plank to get used to keeping my body straight whilst doing the negative push up.
DAY SEVENTEEN - 1st March
A Day of Rest
DAY NINETEEN - 3rd March
Yesterday, I think I did my first push up. The form wasn't totally there, but I managed to a full press up, though I know I can go even lower. I'm keeping to my modified push ups by holding myself at certain levels to build up arm strength. I'm still randomly doing push ups whenever, so I've lost track how many I've done. I should really write it down.
