I've been doing a few push-ups. 257 one-armed since the start of September, in sets of 5-12:
5272+257=5529
I added weight for the last couple of workouts. Using a slightly iffy arrangement with a plate threaded through a chain worn diagonally across my torso. It has a tendency to fall off during rep #4, leaving some scrapes and bruises as the chain slides around. Anyone have a better way of weighting push-ups, short of buying a vest? Considered a backpack, but I don't know if putting a 25 lb plate in a light duty backpack is wise.

5529 + 20 + 15 + 8 + 30 + 20 + 10 = 5632

Wish I could help Nath but I can't even do a single one-armed push up and I don't know much about adding weight. :( one day, maybe... I'd try the backpack.

If you have an arm spare, could you hold it to your chest?

The other arm is injured, which is why I'm doing one-arm push-ups. Also, holding it to my chest would shorten ROM a bit, but I could hold it like the top of a bent-over row. Something to consider when the spare arm's in better shape; thanks.

EDIT:
5702 + 5 + 5 + 6 + 5 = 5723
Satisfactory solution to weighting problem: thread the plate on judo belt worn diagonally across my torso, from the shoulder of the pressing side to the hip of the resting side.

5723+45=5768

If you were to hold it at the top of a row I could see some real balance issues occurring to the point that it may make your form damaging to other parts fo your body. (IANAD) but having it too far out would mean lots of other changes to the way you'd normally do a one arm push up.

Glad that you found a solution though :)
