    How in the F*** does one do burpees around a track? You sure you know what a burpee is? LOL.

    try this...10 secs between reps. basically, no rest. exercises should be done as many reps as you can with proper form.
    -run in place (one min)
    -walking lunges (30 sec)
    -pushups (30 sec)
    -chair step-ups (30 sec)
    -crunches (30 sec)
    -pullups (30 sec)
    -body weight squats (30 sec)
    -Triceps dips using chairs (look it up)
    -plank (30 sec to a min, depending on ability)
    Sweat. Sip water. Rest one min.
    Repeat circuit as many times as you want.
    No gym membership, tire flipping, or kettlebells required. Just your own body weight and ~20-30 mins. Enjoy.

    I dig it, circuit workouts are the way to go. I'll give this a go

    This type of training (HIIT) is proven to be the most efficient way to train. It has the cardiovascular effects of running, cycling, etc. But it also (obviously) trains the whole body in a dynamic way using big muscle groups. It also involves exercises which help improve core stability and posture. Surfing is an unpredictable, dynamic, exhausting, and sometimes dangerous activity. Even if you surf all the time, you still need to cross train to keep your muscle groups strong, loose, and balanced. If you're surfing waves with some kind of consequences, you need to stay fit, for life.

    I'm so hung I do push ups using my schlong not my arm.

    In prison, we did what are called 'Bo Jacksons'.
    Do one push up, jump up, take a step and tap the wall with your hand.
    Do TWO push ups, jump up, and tap the wall with your hand.
    Do Three push ups....
    Do 4
    and so on
    Bo Jackson could do that in a sequence up to 16.
    So 16+15+14+13+12+11+10+9+8+7+6+5+4+3+2+1= 136 push ups in one sequence.
    The best I ever did was 9 and I thought I was going to die.

    Insanity. Shaun T is the man. I've noticed big results while surfing since I've been doing it.

    Agree! I do sets of only 3-5 pushups and pop up after each set. I can vary each set with dry-land practice switch stance, cross steping, drop knee etc.

If you want to get better on getting to feet then you practice getting to feet. The explosiveness involved is much more intense than a push-up alone and there are many other full-body components you'll be missing if you just do push-ups only.

    None of this matters unless you can do the cock pushup.
