January 21, 2013 Reply Turner Welborn it should. have the chairs facing each other. maybe put a towel on the chairs so it doesn hurt your arms February 7, 2013 Reply Michael philps Im i doing right if my back shouldera are sore because i dont feel its penetrating my full back February 28, 2013 Reply saideivr47 thanks dude ,i started to do pushups about 2 months ago and its getting better March 13, 2013 Reply marino4691 i like the elbow exercise alot. its hard for me with extended legs… March 17, 2013 Reply marino4691 you could use two chairs too March 17, 2013 Reply seventhofcups Genious March 27, 2013 Reply mymusic70 i know a different way… the same position but your back against a corner… push your feet away of the wall for more resistant… do not set your back to deep (feet away from the corner)…just enough distance to lift yourself with the arms motion when you elevate your chest… March 29, 2013 Reply GM You could put a bar between 2 chairs, and get underneath, and pull yourself up April 16, 2013 Reply Yemi2009 Would a front lever do the same sort of thing? Just wondering April 23, 2013 Reply maruf shojjib reverse pushu-ups? WHY THE FUK DIDNT I THINK OF THAT??!!!!!! May 18, 2013 Reply Drake Sheets Yeah, I am not sure about the man who made this video, anymore than the next guy but he is right about building up the muscles of the upper back and shoulder blades in order to compensate for heavy muscular development in the pectorals muscles. In essence, they are(the upper back and the chest) what are known as antagonistic pairs. They do not fight or anything like that but are each others polar opposite. One pulls the shoulders forward, the other back. A front lever is the isometric of this. May 23, 2013 Reply Drake Sheets One other thing that I just want to put out there for all my fellow bodybuilding siblings from other mothers.I often do a variation of this exercise on a doorway pull-up bar that is halfway up.While similar,the only difference is that while having your elbows stationary is in essence like a reverse chest fly,the,"traditional,"reverse push-up is more the opposite of a regular push-up.Yes,I have seen it done using a broomstick between two chairs and I myself have done them on a racked weight bar. May 23, 2013 Reply Chris Simms Wow. Yes. An alternative to pull ups. Finally! May 30, 2013 Reply Imran Ali save up a few dollars and buy a set of dumbells and do reverse flys or rows..

July 14, 2013 Reply Jeremy Vega He also sounds like the giraffe from madagascar…which is also Ross… July 19, 2013 Reply Arlo Zolia We do these in Muay Thai training just on the floor. I challenge anyone who scoffs at this kind of exercise to get down and try one single reverse push-up where your body leaves the floor. August 26, 2013 Reply Brainbuster Of course it is. September 2, 2013 Reply Brainbuster Or stand the 2 dumbbells on the ground, balance your elbows on the upright dumbbells, and do reverse pushups. September 2, 2013 Reply Imran Ali why would you do that? You want to hurt your elbows? I would rather buy a set of dumbells than 2 benches. September 2, 2013 Reply tommy panta it depends on what you wanna train.if you want to train ONLY your biceps,use dumbbells,chin ups use a bit of your back too September 24, 2013 Reply Sen Chi that's a pretty good idea. will try to think about how I can incorporate this outdoors peace! October 19, 2013 Reply f4phantom2500 Or you could just do inverted rows (aka Australian pull ups). Better yet, for a higher level of development and still using the pull up bar, work on the front and back levers. October 20, 2013 Reply f4phantom2500 Stand to stand bridges are also exceptionally great for the lower back. After having done them regularly I noticed it looks like I have a 6 pack on my back October 20, 2013 Reply Barrett Nichols I don't know what I did, but I seem to have a pretty well developed back. I don't know if it came from the v-bar pullups I've been doing, or the boxing I've done, but this stuff should work that even more! Thanks! October 22, 2013 Reply JJsAdventure Just do pull ups and and incline push ups,works for me.thats another good way you can do it October 27, 2013 Reply James Pawelek-Lacey Well my mind is tuly blown. An effective lat isolation bodyweight exercise with the possibility of adding weight with a backpack. Well I never.. February 9, 2014 Reply xSilentKhaosx I heard doing horizontal pullups is also an opposite of pushups. Is that true? Like say, hanging from monkey bars at a park with my feet latched on to one bar and pulling myself up from that position. Can I do that to maintain balance for when I do pushups? March 11, 2014 Reply Thisisnotmyrealname8 worth subscribing to. I learn a lot from this guy May 28, 2014 Reply Jerhshyang Cheng Pretty insightful and informative to me. Thanks man. August 17, 2014 Reply walala lol this guys a genius August 22, 2014 Reply 4dåysAutumn pølska for people who don't have pull-up bar, or any other certain equipment for back exercises, they could use this technique with just a couple of chairs! great idea.

Can someone say Owwww. Really helped with tightness from training chest or back.

X-cuses were destroyed when he said "most of you may not have two benches"Hahaha literally meaning mustn't be two benches idiots there are many alternatives like chairs or th thing he showed June 25, 2015 Reply Peter Addison just do reverse pushups much more healthier for shoulder joints than this "strain and hope for the best" approach and you get a free bicep workout as a bonus. been doing this for over 25yrs now. Started with my mums wooden mop! now use floor standing reverse pull up bars that can be put in the corner of the bed room out of the way. My rear shoulders look impressive with out juicing November 9, 2015 Reply David Mortimer I used a coffee table and the foot couch they were the same height (lucky) to do this in my living room .. January 30, 2016 Reply takeahint123 do these actually work in building your back up? February 3, 2016 Reply Peter Addison REVERSE PUSHUPS!!!! not quite. you have equipment there in that room to do a true REVERSE PUSHUP. Pull ups are not REVERSE PUSHUPs. A reverse of a pushup is a push up in reverse. failure here. March 24, 2016 Reply Hola Halo Hello!

Back doesn't hurt that much March 2, 2018 Reply v .kritin i used my engineering books March 4, 2018 Reply François Dion I started doing these yesterday. Does wonders for the shoulders. If you don't have benches, just place yourself in between a pair of chairs. When you're starting out, it's definetly going to be challenging to even do ten of these. The advantage gained is that there is no internal rotation of the shoulders March 10, 2018 Reply Austin goodwyn I tried your 22 day abbs and after every session my ass is wiped.

In my opinion I prefer them over pull ups because I can feel it a lot more in my lats and biceps when doing them.
