    dive bombers = Hindu pushups? But with the reverse motion?

    Also Kimura made his class do 600. The 300 number I believe came from the short autobiography "My Judo" by Kimura - google "kimura my judo". Where he says he di 300 daily.

    I knew I would bring out the Kimura nut-riders. I should remember that to speak his name summons them ... :toothy5:

    It is pretty easy to do a lot of pushups in a day if you can fit it into your daily routine. My office is kind of secluded, so every time I leave to go somewhere (restroom, lunch, refill water, meeting, etc) I'll drop and do push ups before I go. Started with 20, upped it to 25, now I do 30.

    The pyramids remind me of something I used to do called 'burn-outs' where you do 20 pushups, 20 sit ups, 18 push ups, 18 sit ups, 16, 14, 12 etc all the way down to 2 without a break. If that's too easy for you, you can start at a higher number, or go down by 1 instead of 2 for each rep.

    Actually, I only do BJJ. My sole Judo experience comes from a former Karate instructor who would show up and instruct us in basic judo throws. That was over 10 years ago.

    So no, I'm not a Kimura nut-rider. I simply believe in giving a healthy amount of ball licking to any and all badasses within their respective disciplines...assuming said disciplines are capable of producing badasses in the first place.

    lately i've gotten into exercises that fall into two categories:

    1. bodyweight: they can be done with no equipment
    2. you can do them in your tiny apartment, prison cell, whatever.

    burpees and pushups are great examples of both. i read online that 20 descending sets of burpees is called "the prison workout" because it's supposedly done by inmates, can be done in a cell, with handcuffs on, whatever.

    anyway, my meager contribution to the thread: someone mentioned pull-ups! i love pull-ups. if you don't have a pull-up bar, try this:

    1. open a door
    2. jam something in the door frame, so it doesn't close on your hands
    3. throw a towel over the top of the opened door, to make it easier to grip
    4. grab onto the top of the door and do all the pull-ups you want!

    oh, and while we're talking bodyweight, don't forget one-legged squats... :)

    One also has to remember that he did a lot of other **** on top of the 300 push ups (which I suspect were done in one single set.)

    300 push ups a day by themselves should not be a challenge by a person in decent shape (300 in one single set, thought, that's a challenge.)

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    macho, you have the fitness-fu, so i have a question.

    is it true that you can get huge and/or strong doing nothing but isometrics and bodyweight stuff, like the "atlas method" advertised back in the day (from what i gather)?

    it doesn't make sense to get progressively stronger using bodyweight stuff, unless you're getting progressively heavier...

    but what i wonder about are "opposition" exercises, like fighting your biceps and triceps against each other using a band or belt. can you make progress that way in either mass or strength?

    (also i remember you asked for pictures of my belt-and-bag training device, and i apologize for never getting back to you... i dropped off the internet for a while)

    Brings back memories of doing some bodyweight exercises in a holding cell when I was 15 lol. (next to a cell that houdini escaped out of actually)

    i imagine my situation is similar, only instead of not being able to go outside, i just don't want to because it's cold.
