There is something uniquely cool about push ups, both loved and hated at the same time. Everyone knows what “give me twenty” means.
Somehow push ups routinely become party tricks, and great ways to impress your kids and grandkids.
But where to start, most of my clients come in, barely being able to do 5 push ups, if they can do any. Within two or three months, they are doing 20, and many are getting into the 30 straight range.
I’ve even had several 70 year old women do 50 straight push ups. That is cool! 🙂
If you can do even a few push ups from the floor, start on the floor, and max out your reps every time. You will be amazed at how much you improve.
Don’t worry about perfect form, just find a range of motion that doesn’t hurt your joints. I promise, it will get better.
If you can’t yet do them from the floor, then watch the videos below. I have provided several ways to do push ups from an incline, to make it easier. And one at the end to make push ups harder.
