If spreading out your feet allows you to do one (with the torso level) then you can work the stability separately and you can begin doing them while progressively moving your feet closer together.
Actually to be able to do the incline ones, I have to spread my feet quite a bit.
This brings up the question of how many and what kind of weighted pushups you've done, though.
I've done weighted pushup with a 45lbs plate on my back, for 5 reps or so if I remember correctly.
I don't like that method to be honest. In a similar vain to the pistol squat, once you get down to the full ROM exercise it is a whole different ball game. Personally I would do a "bottom up" style where you begin flat on the floor in the one arm pushup position and then use the off-hand to eek out the extra push you need to start or complete the rep. Its tricky to track how much less you are pushing, but it can be done in a general sense. You have to push yourself a bit and not continually rely on your off-hand.
I tried this recently & I did find it quite comfortable to do it this way. Though I guess I will have to be quite objective about how much I'm using my off hand.
However, I'd still encourage working on the stability portion first, to get the body and the shoulder(s) ready. You could do that by using a front plank and then progressing to taking one arm up, etc.
Ok, I'll incorporate this into my training. I'll also read the tutorial as both you & Joe suggested.
I could already do one before I laid off for so long (can't bench for crap so go figure…) and I didn't ever really work very hard on doing more reps
I could do it a long time ago, but it didn't look pretty, & even on the incline ones I get bent out of shape.
I'm up to about 3-5 pushups per arm but I can't hold a candle to beastskills lol.
LOL, I wish I could do that many 1 arm push ups.
THanks a lot guys! I'll take a video of my attempts as soon as I can.
