Default one armed tricep dips

I'm curious about how many people are able to do the one armed tricep dips on High Step Training Advanced? I have to do them with both arms. Those of you who are able, do you tend to do the upper body workouts with a lot of weight? Just curious.

OHMYGOD THESE KILL!
I can't do as many as Cathe does before I have to use both arms. That workout wipes me out anyway. For my usual upper body workouts, I can pretty much use the weights that Cathe uses.
Do you find this workout to be particularly challenging? I do, even though it is one of the shorter ones. Lately I've been doing the premixes, and saving the high step part for a separate workout. IT STILL KILLS!

Default Hey Soosan!

What about Rocky? Does he employ a "tail assist" for balance and stability or does he just do 'em flat out?

Everyone is different. I had no problem with the one arm dips. But I can keep up with Cathe weight-wise for back and triceps. I'm still in awe of her for biceps, shoulder, and chest. I mean HOLY COW! When she does pec flies in PUB with 20#!!!!

Then again, I didn't have problems with pikes on the ball either. But I'm totally wiped doing some of the side plank work she does - like in ME where she has the med ball on her side and raises and lowers. Forget the med ball - I have my arm on the ground trying to help push myself up! But no one else ever mentions this move, so I suspect that I must be weaker than most in that area. There's a similar move in L&G - side glute raises - I can only do half of what Cathe does.

She is definitely an inspiration!

He used to modify by employing his tail, but he can do them sans tail now.

Even squirrels realize there's no shame in modifying a difficult move. Chances are, if you keep at it, you'll get it eventually. (Just thought I'd add a moral.;-) )

she certainly IS an inspiration!

sometimes i feel bad posting that i can do the workouts as is the first time through.. so far the only thing i've modified and continue to modify are the straddle steps cuz i got a sharp pain in my knee and have been leary of them since.. haven't given them a second chance... i just do them from behind!

i've actually been disappointed in workouts (i.e. pushpull/supersets) cuz i had already mastered viper and gauntlet before trying them!

i still remember how afraid i was of bootcamp cuz of all the posts about not getting through it and how gawd-awful it was... i LOVED it and did it all the way through.. do i do it more easily now, after doing it a bunch of times.. yes... but was it the horrible workout i had anticipated due to the threads here, at ya ya's and VF? nope!

so yes.. each person is different and each person is at a different level of fitness...

i know a lot of the posts make me feel like superwoman.. and i know i'm not! i've got a long way to be "cathe 2"... but i do cathe cuz everyone else is too easy (and i'm REALLY REALLY looking forward to being challenged in hardcore!)

When I first did High Step Training Advanced I could only do two one armed tricep dips and then would have to switch to both arms. Now I can do all but the last two with one arm. I've increased the tricep weights during the same training period. I found gradually increasing the number of one armed dips worked for me, although some days I seemed to go backwards. This week I pulled my wee ones (3 and 5 years old) in the sleigh for 80 minutes. Later that same day I could only do half of the one armed triceps in the workout before my triceps screamed for mercy.
