    Boy, am I glad I didn't spend my hard earned money buying a book from this website, then ask questions about it on this forum, only to be told by well-respected members that it is worthless and I should use another book or method instead.

    I am glad I spent the time on knee push-ups, half push-ups, and the soon to be completed full push-ups. I am sure there are easier ways to get there, but will the journey be as worthwhile? Will I have found the secrets imbedded in the method and developed the mental drive and toughness necessary to make it through the pain of one more rep? The desire and resolve to keep going knowing a few more reps are just around the corner?

    If I wanted to add strength only I would use a different method. But I want the challenge of doing CC as it is and drain every morsel of strength and size gains out of it that I can.

    One thing that CC teaches very well is to lose your Ego. You may think you are strong but you find out quickly that you got nuthin. I was doing 75-100 push-ups per set before I started CC. Thought I could jump right in. Boy was I wrong. Starting at step one was the best decision I could have made. Just be humble, consistent, and patient and you will realize strength and size gains that other methods wish they could promise.

    Good Luck with YOUR Journey.

    If you care about being strong, fit, and healthy, you only need one progressive exercise for push-ups, like incline push-ups (varying the incline as needed). No need to complicate this.

    If you care about doing multiple regressive exercises for the sake of being able to say that you did them, then go right ahead and spend more time doing push-ups on your knees and on inclines and cutting ROM.

    Besides, if you care about developing mental strength from high reps, you're better off just doing 10 minutes after your strength workout of pure high rep work. You'll get the same benefit, and your strength practice will improve faster and will be far simpler IMO
