Okay, good stuff! You're exactly right on the push-ups. I see so many people with their hands low to their body with a tremendous amount of angle in the arms, which incorporates more of the anterior delt, and makes it a less efficient movement. Also, at 5'9” (see, I can be generous), your WERE definitely obese at 210, which only means that your were more than 30 lbs overwieght. But, that's clearly in the past, so fuck me
. And I'm sure you've put on muscle mass while you've lost those 12 lbs, which makes the work you've put in that much more impressive
Here's your next Sit-up challenge, or for anyone that wants to take it on:
Functional Sit-up (flat on your back, legs extended, back of heels on the ground)
Acceptable Repetition includes scapula/shoulder blades touching the ground to shoulders crossing the hips, back to the ground. (don't curl or lunge down the body, keep your torso straight)
100 Sit-ups For Time (clock starts when your shoulders leave the ground and stops when your shoulders hit the ground at 100 count.
PR: 2:42 (1/1.62 sec)
