Perfect Pushup

This little system is NO JOKE! After having to spend so much time largely inactive, I was excited to get back into an exercise routine and resync my mind and body. I picked up the Perfect Pushup after hearing such good reviews about it. I tried them out once when I spotted them in a Costco, but I only did 2 or 3 reps. I didn't realize how much these really isolate the pectorals, biceps and triceps.

After picking my set up, I cracked the box open and got straight to work. The objective is to work in a pyramid system in under two minutes. Starting at the maximum number of reps you can do and then decreasing by 4 each set. After completing the routine, my muscles were burning GOOD and I knew I had worked well.

The next morning was when it really hit me how serious these things are. My chest felt like it had been pummeled throughout the night by a meat tenderizer. I could barely life my arms to move my computer's mouse around. It was awful. I'm still feeling the burn and I have Karate class today. This should be fun indeed.....

If you're into keeping fit, you should definitely pick this system up. For the chest and arms, it is something ferocious.
