Workout 17 – Pushy

Today you’re going to do push-up ladders using Eccentric push-ups as your variation.

Each ladder has three rungs. During rung 1 you’ll do two push-ups, Rung 2 – three push-ups, and Rung 3 – five push-ups. Here’s your Eccentric push-up tutorial:

Between each rung you’ll do a stair sprint – run (or walk quickly) up every other step in a flight of steps, and then run down every step. Do 30 jumping jacks between ladder rungs if you don’t have access to steps.

Do the entire sequence 3 times. So your workout will look like this:

2 Eccentric push-ups

Stair sprint

3 Eccentric push-ups

Stair sprint

5 Eccentric push-ups

Stair sprint

Rest and repeat the sequence 2 more times.
