RE: hundredpushups
I'm glad to see that many of you guys recognize that the humble push up is a great exercise. While the standard push up with hands under shoulders, elbows tucked produces excellent results, try performing the Hindu push up, aka Tiger push up or Furey push up.

You can see it on You Tube or see it on the Transformetrics website. Sorry, forum won't let me post links. I know lots of guys that can bench 400 lbs., but cannot perform 25 Hindu push ups.

This is a complete exercise that trains every part of your body. The famous wrestler, Great Gama, would perform thousands of Hindu push ups A DAY! He was undefeated in his career of several thousand bouts.

By the way, the Hindu squat is a great complement to the Hindu push up. You can also find it on You Tube. Builds tremendous strength not only in the legs but also in the abdominal core.

As an older dude in his fifties, all my friends that lifted heavy now suffer from "busted-up weightlifter" syndrome. They have too many joint and spinal problems and visit their compassionate chiropractor weekly for pain mediation. Although I was a good athlete, I never was comfortable with weights and discovered that bodyweight exercises were more my "thing". All my meathead buddies gave me grief because I only did bodyweight. I used the bodyweight exercises to add strength/stamina without bulk. As a competitive martial artist (jiu jitsu, Kendo) in my teens and 20's I could not add one extra pound in order to make my weight limit.

Myself and my few friends that used bodyweight exercises are pain-free and very active. Again, check out the 59 yo guy (John Peterson) at the Transformetrics site. That dude is simply unbelievable and he never lifted weights. He only used bodyweight exercises starting with the old Charles Atlas course when he was 10 yo, post childhood polio. By the way, you can get the original Charles Atlas course for free and download it from the Transformetrics website.

Shoutout to G Manifesto who understands boxing training methods (strength/stamina without weight gain). I was introduced to bodyweight by my uncle. He was a legendary boxing manager at the epicenter of boxing, the Olympic auditorium in Los Angeles. The only venue built exclusively for boxing (1932 Olympics). He managed/trained 3 world champions when there was only one sanctioning body.

He taught me that the pushup and its variations were every much as important as the speed and heavy bag. How wise his words were. Thanks Uncle Johnny!
