    A 100 Ross burpie challenge sounds more fun.

    haha will do when i can afford the time off skill training. Nothing beats a good burpie workout for conditioning.

    Week three complete! the third day of week three was tuff. I also started training bjj again, so that probably didn't make it any easier. I guess according to the program, no max until the end of week four. See ya next week.

    when i do pushups i get a lingering pain in my wrists that gets worse the longer i do them. i think it has to do with me having relatively small wrists and hands compared to the rest of my body. does this happen to anyone else?

    my wrists bothered me for the first month i was in the army, but as i dropped weight, they seemed to stop hurting but that could have just been because they were getting accustomed to the exercise; honestly, the latter explaination doesn't really make any sense to me. the only thing i can think of is that because my wrists are small, in combination of them being bent flat during the pushups, it's too much weight for them. bench pressing large amounts of weight doesn't seem to hurt, but because of concern over the pains from pushups, i always wear wrist braces when on the bench.

    any thoughts on that?

    Have you tried doing pushups on your knuckles? or even on your fingertips? you could make a pushup frame from PVC piping or use some barbells on the floor so that you're not placing your hands flat on the ground.

    a lot of parks nearby have these bars installed:

    Like sprunghunt said you can use various things to take pressure off your wrists. You can also buy pushup handles at places like Dick's. They are pretty cheap.
