    I have that book I remember the rep charts just ended up frustrating me. He says that it's fine to do a movement as long as you can get 3 solid reps. But then all his charts are based on 3x(5-8)

    Bodyweight Pushing Exercises

    I seem to have difficulty progressing on pushing movements with bodyweight and I am unsure why this is. I can get one or two clean OAPUs and 2-3 HSPUs at shoulder width but I have so much trouble...

    Out of curiousity why did you elect to not use weighted chinups? I tried the bands and found it much easier to build power with weight.

    He's basically saying give yourself room to grow. If you go flat out all the time you'll wear yourself out. So say you could do 6 pullups full out. Start with 3x4 and add a rep each time. Work hard...

    A good handstand progression

    I think I've thought of a better way to progress to Handstand Pushups. Go through the usual steps pike pushups, the L shaped ones etc. Once you build up the reps and are looking for the next step.

    It's interesting that it's such a huge difference though. I think I'll stick with them until I hit 3x8 OAPUs off the floor. Then move on to planche work. Which I hope will have a better carryover.
