These may go by some other name but I find them, hhhhmmm, strenuous, especially as a supplemental core exercise. Place dumbbells of lighter weight (25# and up) on the ground, grasp dumbbells and assume a pushup position (hands holding dumbells at standard pushup width,feet shoulder width apart), do a pushup, row one side, do a pushup, row other side, etc., you get the idea. Anyone else do these and if so, how do you tend to integrate them into your workout, inclusive or exclusive of the WoD. General thoughts, comments, whatever. . .

I'm guessing by the name, are these a Davies Original?

I have no clue as to the origins, someone told me about them and referred to them as that . . .

I am new here and will be dying during... I mean starting the WOD tomorrow, so I hope I am not overstepping my bounds... but I have used these before.

The most recent way I used them was in a GPP circuit that I used to do:
1 min - DB snatches
1 min - Thrust squat while holding DBs, row right and left and then stand
1 min - hip mobility drill
1 min - hindu squats
1 min - dands
1 min - bridging
1 min - rest
Repeat 2 more times.

Before that, I would finish my upperbody workout with them. 20 push-ups, then 20 rows, then a second set (12-15 reps) and then a third set (8-10 reps)

Cheers,

Dave

Sounds tough! (What are "dands"?)

Dave W: A "dand" is a hindu pushup, sometimes called a cat stretch. Mike Mahler had an article about them in T-mag a while back:

Oh, man, just tried these "Renegade Rows" today.

Used 15 lb. dumbbells (round, so they wanted to roll). Surprisingly tough . . . it was hard just to stabilize on one hand (when that hand was on a dumbbell that wanted to roll), let alone trying to lift the other arm. I ended up feeling it more as an abdominal/torso workout than shoulders . . . but I seriously doubt I could have done it with any more weight.

Good stuff, thanks.

Yeah, the row isnt the issue, its stabilizing while you are doing the row. Sometimes I eliminate the 'pushup' aspect and just do the rows.

Mark, thanks for the link on the hindu pushup

Greg-I did a few sets of 15 one time, and they definitely get the lungs going
