After my 3 mile walk/jog one of my girlfriends came over to check out my new little garage gym. My friend and I were playing around with the pull up bar like we were kids. I was also pushing Lyla around in the little radio flyer wagon in between messing around with pistols and swinging on the bar. I then wanted to try a one arm push up. I decided, what the heck, let me give it a whirl and fall flat on my face. Well surprisingly I did it! Then I did it again and then on the other side! Woo hooo. Hmmmm how did this happen since I haven't really trained for one arm push ups?? My guess is tension or lots and lots of stress built up.
I have been practicing pistols and pull ups for the past 2 weeks, which both require tons of tension. I just used the same breathing and tension technique to the push up and I actually did it. There was definitely some snap, crackle, and pops going on.
Strength works in mysterious ways sometimes. I strongly feel that the mind can take over and provide you with the extra strength in time of need. Especially when you have lots of built up energy inside that is ready to explode! The story of my life.
