View Full Version : incredible pushup

Can anybody do this?

the main question is whats his other foot doing
05-26-2003, 09:59 AM
You can't see it, but I assume it's on the ground. Either that or the picture caught him as he's falling to the floor. That looks like to much of a weight imbalance for both feet to be up. Still looks hard, even with one foot down.

He only has 1 leg

ive seen breakdancers do crazier **** than this :D

this man has obviously totally lost his mind and cannot be trusted. i mean... just look at that watch, and that temperature regulator in the background.
I tried it but after removing my left leg, I was too weak to even get one! Ugh!:D

I got it, but my form probably sucked. Lateral balance is hard there.

I saw a girl in a fitness comp do this exact type of pushup last weekend (May 17th). So yes, it can be done.

I'll just say it looks tough and leave it at that.

even though i weigh 225lbs, ive maneged to do one handed pushup just once.
It comes down to body structure (ie torso:leg ratio) and flexibility. You don't have to be an incredibly strong person, in fact I bet muscle mass works against you in something like that.

ooh my bad, i didnt see that he was doing it on one foot.
05-26-2003, 02:37 PM
i dont think i have that good of balance to do somthing like that
05-26-2003, 02:40 PM
I bet that foot is sticking way out to the side, for balance. I haven't tried it yet.
OK I tried this. I can't even get the one foot off the ground, much less try to do a pushup in that position. Can anybody get on just one foot and one hand?

O.k, I tried that push-up today, and I fell on my face and almost broke my nose :D
05-26-2003, 08:25 PM
one foot and one hand = easy. however i found my elevated leg wanted to curl up towards my azs as i went down, but i guess its all just bodymechanics and bone structure

ill stick to bench press..dont feel like losing my teeth over push ups

Is that Pavel Tsatsoluine? If it is then I'd imagine it is very hard to do properly. He used to train the Russian special forces and does a lot of work in functional strength training for athletes with things like kettlebells.

Russians are nuts (in a good way).
05-26-2003, 11:53 PM
Fell on my face.

his left leg is perpindicular to his body and resting on bricks or somethin else raised up...just the angel u can't see his other leg....i am a skeptic and hate people who can do cool stuff that i can't, but that is my take on this clown
