It’s one thing to do 2,000 pushups per day. It’s another to do only three pushups, and to take one minute for each of them.
That’s three minutes for three pushups.
Yes, I know you can do the math – but some people truly can’t, so my quick computation was for them, not you.
Here’s another key point:
Doing pushups on the palms of your hands – (regular pushups) – don’t do your body or brain nearly as much good as doing them on your fists.
And if you’re an athlete who wants to throw or hit harder, then (regular) pushups on your palms are a definite no-no. Not to mention idiotic exercises such as the bench press, deadlift and curls – which tighten and shorten the very tissues you need to relax, so you can coil and uncoil with ease.
This past weekend I spoke to the father of a boy who was previously throwing over 90 mph.
And despite working harder and harder in the weight room, he hasn’t gained a single MPH of velocity. In fact, he’s gone in reverse – and NO ONE can figure it out, except el Furecat.
Get the boy OUT of the weight room, pronto. And start him on the exercises I teach in the Matt Furey Inner Circle.
It’s insane to watch all the coaches buying into the weight training for ALL sports thinking. It’s even crazier to see ball players hiring powerlifters and bodybuilders to make them stronger for sports such as baseball, tennis and golf.
Remember when Tiger Woods was a twig?
He crushed the ball and won tournament after tournament.
Then he BULKED UP.
What was the result? Did he hit the ball further? Was he more accurate? Was he injury free?
Negative on all three counts.
You’ll note that Tiger is playing better these days. You’ll also note he’s no longer as bulky.
Meanwhile, the push-pull gooorooos are still telling you that bigger, stronger muscles are better.
Better for what?
Fitting into bigger clothes?
Stronger in WHAT way?
For the weight training exercises or for the movements involved in their respective sport?
By the way, as an aside, I weighed in at 196.2 pounds yesterday. Gearing up for all new videos, maybe even a new book, showcasing my current thinking and training.
