Mike Tyson's Push Up Routine
No joke, this will make your deltoids look like you're wearing two bowling balls under your shirt. This gives me a more intense burn in my delts than I could get from any press or raise in any gym.
WARNING: this routine will work and blow up your chest and shoulders
do 10 pushups-----> then raise your hands to the cieling for 10 seconds
then immediately do 9 pushups and raise your hands to the cieling
then 8 pushups......
(raise hands 10 seconds)
all the way down to 1 pushup.
Inbetween sets, always raise your hands to the cieling and count to ten. Do not hold your hands together, put your hands up like someones got an AK47 in your ugly face.
Try it out for a few weeks, and see if you can still reach your ass crack after you've dropped the browns off at the superbowl.
See you on the otherside

So how is this Tyson's push up gig? Did he tell you?

I imagine that raising your arms lowers the bloodflow, but why would that be any more effective?

Tysons' trainer must have been in the military.

I was actually very curious about this, and tried it earlier.
My shoulders did burn like a mofo. Regardless if it is used by Tyson or not, it seems to work.

Good call BloodLine. I just got back from the gym, and i did this push up routine, along with the same routine using pullups. I did each one twice. I am now officially sore as hell. Good sore though, kind of like the sore you get when you haven't been to the gym in a while. This will be added to my program. Nice info

id like to know how you know this is tyson's, did you find and repost?
i would think the hands being raised adds to the burn, it should keep the blood there and keep your shoulders working between reps.

following programs by professionals is rather shotty sometimes as somebody like tyson was a very special athlete and no matter what he did he was going to be what he was...it wasnt a push-up routine. Not a shot to anyone I am just saying.

its not like it was posted so we could be like Mike lol. Its just another way of working out for people to try.

I think after so many arrests, Tyson got the hands up part down packed. Or, maybe while in prison and doing so many pushups to pass time, he always had to put his hands up so they could search him to make sure he did not bite someones' ear off and got it hidden on him somewhere. I am just saying......... But seriously, that will be my close out routine after a chest workout. If I miss the gym, I can do that at home, except maybe I will try to start from maybe 15 or 20.

damn, i could use some canonball shoulders. Ima incorporate this into my bulking routine which i'm dying to get back into.

Funny I'm in the military and we do these during PT but I liek to start at 5 and work up to 25 then back down.. I do agree they do work your upper body out pretty good..

the hands overraised is something i've tried before, it was actually part of a wrestling practice routine I used in high school.
it takes quite a bit of static contraction to hold the arms overhead, and it seems to exponentially become harder. meanign if you just held your hands up, say for a roller coaster ride momentarily, it feels meangingless, but 20 seconds later it becomes harder already as you feel a burn..
i doubt it builds any muscle, but i think it'd be beneficial for
1.) a mind muscle connection
2.) pump before gettin onstage
3.) active recovery pump

I'm gonna try this for 30 days and see if it makes a difference and post back instead of saying it will or won't work without even doing it.....
See you on the other side...maybe.....:P

It's only 55 push-ups. Is this to be done multiple times during the day? You can do son gods/arm circles or just plain raise your hands above your head and hold them there and eventually will feel a burn. That does not necessarily indicate significant muscle growth. Having been in the military for sometime now and push-ups, son gods/arm circles conjoining in this manner or close to are a guarantee. However, you do not see people with massive shoulders walking around everywhere. If this works for anyone then more power to them.
That being said, push-ups are definitely a must exercise and laddering or pyramiding are great, but 55? Really? Only 55?
