feet =-) It is easier than a push up if your hands are elevated.

You are smart. Is there a difference if your head is elevated or your feet? Just curious. I've seen people do both. I love this site! Thx Tia.

with the push ups I will do elevated push ups; legs on a bench, on a chair, or leg lifted.

With Ball crunches/lateral flexion-swiss side crunch/hip I did weights with arms extended leaning far back or over (very hard)

I really didn't care for jackknifes but I did them
=-)I tried to go extra slow. I tried weight but that hurt my back. They are only in 2 stages. (I think)

Reverse crunch I did on an angled bench.

I hope that helps.
Sorry about the misunderstanding =-)
TIA

I guess I said that wrong. I mean it doesn't feel like it's doing anything since I do pushups all the time. You think I should do more than 15 per set? I will definately keep that in mind through Stage 1. I could see it getting old fast... Thanks for the help

Stage one does not take a long time but the other stages do. If you have lifted before I would only do 4 weeks of stage 1 do the special workout then move to Stage 2. "that's what I did. stage 2 and up go from 45min to over an hour. (I only did two weeks of stage 6 then moved to stage 7 cuz' I didn't like stage 6 at all.)
As far as push ups go they work. Start doing them on your knees if you have to then do a few regular ones until you can't do anymore then go to your knees. BUt I would not switch them. Push ups you will see results in fast. If you are not progressing in them you aren't pushing yourself hard enough.
I started with only 5 toe push ups and I can do well over 35 now. You can do it. =-)
Hope this helped
TIA

So I am starting Week 2 of NROL. Seems like I knock it all out in 30 min. Is that typical?

Here's where I started
Deadlifts 60 lbs
Squats 75
DB Press 20s lb DBs
Lat Pulldown 75
Seated Row 75
Step up 30
Lunge 50
Ball crunch 10

What do you guys think of changing pushups to bench press? I can't weight myself with the pushups and I want to progress... Any thoughts are appreciated!! :)
