Modifying Lynne for home: ring pushups or pseudo planche pushups?

Gonna do Lynne tomorrow. Don't have a bar and DB are too light ( 2x25lb ) unless I wanted to do a zillion reps.

Should I do ring pushups or pseudo planche pushups? PPPU probably have more load and intensity and will be able to do fewer reps than ring pushups which may enter into endurance zone. I've never done max ring pushups while I'm fresh so no idea what max is.

I figure pullups are strict and rest time period should be at least 90s to 300s, prob gonna use 3m.

It's a bit easier posting here than front page as it's a pain to go through posts and comments there.

I've been a bit leery on BP ever since it agitated my shoulder last year when showing it a to friend. Last time I did BP was BW during summer toward the end of a lift workout after OHP. Started to irritate left shoulder then still.

Hi Blair,

I've substituted weighted dips for the BP in Lynne before, usually 45#. Seems to be a close approximation to BW BP; as I tend to get about the same number of reps.
