    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    I'm doing 2-3 1,5h classes of BJJ with only abt. 15 mins of technique training while doing this. Are they enough for balancing things out training wise, or do I need to do some specific exercises like pull ups to keep muscle balance etc. sane?

    I actually had a problem with my rotators a year ago when I was doing a lot of pull ups but little else. Increased my reps from 0 to 12 in six months for both knuckles in and knuckles out. Towards the end I had to do circular motions and push ups suggested by a physiotherapist I know to get rid of my back pains. It wasn't fun, so I'd like to do things with more sanity this time.

    The problem is that my life is so busy right now I have to choose between going to a gym and taking BJJ, and I'd rather take BJJ. All other training has to be done at home, and I don't have any gym equipment besides a couple of 3 pound free weights my wife got a couple of years ago.

    Stupid as I am, I'm still going to try go through this regime since it's kind of a challenge with my friend. People do a lot more stupid stuff when dared to, so I'm not quitting. I give you the right to say "I TOLD YOU SO, YOU FUCKING MORON" if I come back complaining about x and y after a while.

    Hoodedmonk, my initial was 21. Again, with excuses, but still.

    So far the first week:

    8.7: max 15 (total 49)
    10.7: max 19 (total 63)
    12.7: max 18 (total 66)

    Again, it's not ideal as an antagonist for the push-ups. Yes, in and of itself, it's a great pulling movement, and in a complete routine where you actually have a vertical push and horizontal push, a pull-up and a row are great movements to have. However, in an incomplete and potentially hazardous routine such as this one, you're going to want a direct opposition.

    Seriously, once you get to 100 pushups, you won't think it's enough. Trust me.

    Just do pushups in your off time, while you do well-rounded workouts, and eventually you will get there.

    Damn. The site made it to the front page of Digg, and crashed from all the traffic.

    Hope they are back up in a day or so, I never printed out the chart.

    That's the kiss of death for this workout's credibility.

    Supine Row (or vertical row) is the direct opposite. Right?

    Give or take the bench, yes. Same plane of motion in the opposite direction, same grip (if you choose so), and it'll recruit the posterior chain to stabilize. If you wanted to be really nitpicky, you should do some finger extensor work with the push-ups to offset the taxing of your grip from the supine rows.

    Week two complete. one set max: 51 push-ups. looks like I will stay in level three for week three. I have added the ab wheel to the work out, and that's it. I have not lifted weights since I began this program. My wife and daughter said they like having me around the house more. this workout takes me about 15 min. and I don't have to drive. Report back in a week.

    I got sick on the first day of my holiday. Sucks, and took me off the program until I'll get better. Finished the first two weeks, but I guess I'll do the second week again when I continue. Tried the max while sick (since I'm stupid and stubborn) and got 30, which is bad even if you're down with the flu. I'll get back when I'm OK again.
