    Good workout. The stretch pushup and the barbwire pushups at the end were the tough ones for me. I’d never really done the stretch ones before, and even though I’d done the barbwire before having them at the end of the workout made them tough. I look forward to tomorrow.

    Not bad other than the “Full Range Of Motion ” push ups that were in fact not full range of motion. A full range of motion would be.
    Start with arms fully extended.
    lower your body as a unit (back straight) until your chest just touches the floor.
    Raise your body as a unit until your arms are fully extended.

      Hi Terry, Yep you’re totally right. I just watched the video again and my form is pretty crappy. Definitely want to try your best to get the full range in. 🙂

      Looking forward to more of your comments!
