One of my clients was nice enough to let me snap some pics of him performing hand release push-ups and pull-ups. He works extremely hard at both of these exercises, and we have seen some awesome results!
BODY WEIGHT WORKOUT approximately 30 minutes
Before beginning the workout make sure to Warm-Up for 5-10 minutes (light jogging, walking, biking, running in place, Jumping jacks, etc)
Perform 10 repetitions of each exercise for 1 round, Complete AS MANY ROUNDS AS POSSIBLE in 20 minutes
Once you’ve completed the workout, Cool-down with some stretching
Here is an example of Hand Release Pushups, Thanks Douglas!
Douglas did these PULL-UPS without assistance, but if you cannot do a pull up on your own use a machine or band
(if you do not have access to a pull-up bar, you can use a band and do Lat-Pulls by wrapping the band around a banister or something sturdy)
Before beginning a new workout program always check with your physician first.
