The reason I put this post in Jollies Bar is it's more of something you do for a laugh in a competition unless you're strong. Today my friend came round and said "Hey Ash you're look almost as good as me now" to which I suggested we had a competition but he got to choose what we did. He chose 1 arm push ups.

Much to my suprise I did 7 per arm and felt I could have done more, the first 1 per arm I swear I heard and felt 5 or 6 clicks in my back, probably because I've never tried them before.. Still I was amazed I could do 14 in total and I may just integrate these into my new fitness program.

I'll post a vid soon but in the meantime how many can you do?

Mate broke his radius wrist bone doing this, I would not recomend incorporating this into your training programme ash mate, Your not exactly going to get further in life because you can do pressups one armed.. unless u fancy boosting your ego +1 point :uglyhammer:

never had the crack or the clicks in my back for arms, but i do try them, i managed to do 1 without losing balance, the only problem i have is with one armed press ups if i go down to 2 inches above the ground i'll fall flat on my face.

I go down low enough to kiss the floor. I swear that's the cleanest spot in our living room!

Feet apart, quite wide. If you do them feet together you have to be very strong to hold yourself up with tipping over but it can be done. I just haven't worked out how to get back up yet.

*text deleted*.. That's a good one, start doing push ups in a nightclub, I can imagine all the people falling over you
