    I tried a one armed knee press-up - nope.
    Thumb touching. Similar to 'diamond'? Whatever, they're tough, and I'll give a pass at one-arm! Very well done for trying.

    Really well done Mike. I'm giving the bar a rest due to continued elbow issues (albeit getting better).

    Today, I thought I'd try something a bit different as a way to improve the isometrics.

    So, the attempt was EMOM x10 of: 20 sec isometric holds, at the lower end of press-up position, before returning to the top, arms locked, position for the remaining seconds of each minute. I managed x8 sets out of the aspired for 10. The bulging of the veins in my forearms and hands, together with the uncomfortableness of the muscle fatigue, eventually got the better of me. I had just completed a 15Km indoor row, so my arms and core had some tiredness already though. I'll maybe try 15 secs isometrics next time and see how that goes.

    Luckily my elbows don't give me any trouble.

    That isometric hold sounds hard - it should help your "Sallys".

    EMOM x13 of: 15 secs isometric press-up holds, at the lower end of press-up position, before 'resting' returning to the top, arms locked, position for the remaining seconds of each minute.

    13 sets all completed, albeit I aimed for 15 of 15!
