Thoughts and Tips

  • The core needs to be tensed to counter balance the excess torque
    • a prominent difference between conventionals and one-arm
    • possible to do a conventional with a lose core
  • will also strengthen the ligaments and tendons around the elbows and joints along the way
  • not a lot of hypertrophy benefits : stick to normal pushups for that
