If the push-ups and pull-ups are the only things that are relatively safe for my spine (if I will do them under certain angle) and they will not knock me out of life for months – I will do them crazy as hell.
I will be the one who do this exercises with the same passion as it would be a weight set!
The fun side of this is when your boss at work comes to you and asks “- Who is sleeping here?” Pointing a blanket on the floor 🙂
That’s how I rested at full-time job when excessive pain started to interfere with work.
Here is me after one year of pushups and pullups only. Of course I can not call myself healthy but at least now I can help my wife carry some not very heavy bags from store, and it’s already a big win!
