    Finger tip Pushups-an old fave!!

    In kung-fu we do fingertip push ups often and I find it has alot of benefits.

    Good forearm workout,and there good for helping gain strenth in your hands/wrists for Deadlifts,etc.Has helped my grip faiure go alot further..

    Also we somehow forget the muscles in our hands/lower forearms.Are hands are what make our world move so it takes a tight,tough grip!!haha that's my analogy

    There tough at first, but after a while it really gets easy to the point of 50+ reps ,like regular push ups.

    But Im curious if anyone else does them.If not I suggest em, as part of any routine.
    win win.

    Hoooowa!!
    Habit is powerfull and custom can Kill.

    Niceness FTW.

    i dont do them.kind of scary.i always am scared of hand injuries as i over use my hands.
    however i have enjoyed knuckle push ups in the past i like the straight wrists.
    Eat for what you are about to do, not for what you have already done.

    if i don't know how to cut ,why would i be bold enough to bulk?

    'Failure' isn't a requirement for growth, but progression is.

    That's the catch though man.Do them,and in a short time you'll find your wrists will get strong as helll.I'm a musician and it helps with playing my guitars,etc.I cant aford a hand injury so I hear ya there too.
    Knuckle push ups are bad@$$ in there own right too.
