Getting to 500 push ups

Getting to 500 push ups

Somewhat unintentionally continuing on yesterday’s “girl push up” topic. One of the ladies I train sent me this today. One of her goals was to do a ONE push up.

A simple way to get strong with push ups (or anything, really) is to do a set of them daily. Do one rep (elevated if on the ground is too difficult), and keep at it until you can do two. Two turns to three, three to four, and so on. Never fail a rep, always leave a bit “in the tank”.

One rep might not seem much, but it all adds up. Then one day you realise you’ve done 500 over the last few months. That’s something.

A fact: Of the 500, all were real, gender neutral push ups. Drip by drip.
