Trammell's Health & Fitness Tips - Health, Fitness, Nutrition & Training Tips to Keep you Healthy and Motivated
As a personal trainer, I recommend ladder pushups for endurance and building a stronger chest, especially doing it last after lifting very heavy in your chest workout.
What you do is get in pushup position and go down and hold it on the down of the pushup for 1 second and then come up and then go down and hold for it for a second isometric hold and then come up and down twice for 2 pushups etc.
The hold on the down of the pushup matches the pushups you do for max strength and endurance and so this is called ladder pushups so happy ladder climbing in your chest workouts.
Also another way of doing this is do a 10 second isometric hold on the down of the pushup and then do 10 pushups after the hold.
