I am fairly comfortable with good form lever press ups, which in convict conditioning is the last stage before one arm press ups. They challenge me but are now totally manageable up to around ten reps.

According to the author of CC one arm press ups "shouldn't be too intimidating" after mastering the lever. However, I am nowhere anywhere near approaching the one arm press up. I can't even get a one armed negative wide-stance knee press up!

I wonder if this is primarily a strength or a balance issue. Either way, I feel like there are three or four "missing" progressions between lever press ups and the one arm press up, but I'm not sure what. How did the rest of you get there?

Like this - one arm regular position, one arm straight out on a raised object

I just wanted to update this thread for anyone who finds it at a later date with a similar problem. For me the trouble in progressing was definitely technique-related rather than strength-related. Although I had the right triangular feet and arm position, I was coming straight down onto my arm, and basically crushing it and forcing it to collapse on itself rather than following a slightly curved route down the side which gives the arm some space and a nice healthy range of motion (Al Kavadlo's new video on one armed press ups has a good example of this better technique)
