Push up... the mountain

Post by badversion »

I have been trying push up for about 2 weeks now and haven't been successful yet

Any help on what should I do?

Try doing easier versions of the standard pushup. Like incline pushups (lean against a table or wall and pushup). Or try starting from the "down" position and push yourself up first, practice it like that until you get stronger. Or you can modify the pushup position by using your knees instead of feet to balance from. Keep working at it! :D

It is nice video and good one because i am also fond of push ups because it is considered to be the basic exercise that can be done at home and i do it at home about 40 push ups.
