How To Do A 1 Arm Pushup

Getting in position for the 1 arm pushup

I was teaching my MamaTone class yesterday and at the end of class when they were dead tired I had all the moms max out on the number of pushups they could do.  Most of these moms have been super consistent for anywhere from 6 months to 3 years with me, and the average number of pushups was over 30 and Laura was able to get 75 good pushups.  These pushups were of course on their toes, since I don’t really consider pushups on knees to even be pushups.

So for many of you (especially those of you who are paying clients through my Fit Fun Bootcamps, MamaTone, and DVDs) pushups are pretty easy and boring.

More recently I have been getting requests to help you learn how to do one arm pushups, the ones you see in the movie Rocky.  I have worked a little bit recently with my clients to do 1 arm pushups and many of them can do a couple of them with perfect form.  So I wanted to make a video talking about how to train to be able to do a 1 arm pushup and the technique that is involved.

Give the 1 arm pushup a try and let me know what you think in the comments section below.

  2. Hi Dustin, I enjoyed your showing us how to do the one arm push ups. I did it while I was sitting, watching you. I also did the two arm push ups. using my strength, pretending to have weights and moving the way you did. You are an inspiration.Keep up the good work. Shalom, Esther
