Getting to Your First Push-up

The process is pretty simple and can apply to almost anything really:

Consistency is key.

I remember when I couldn’t do one regular push-up. It took weeks of modified push-ups at low reps, but I kept at it. Ten weeks later, I can do more than 20 normal and even tricep ones ^_^!

In addition to staying consistent, there were a few tips I used to get there:

  • Core plays a huge role in this process, get to planking!
  • Modify. You want to build the right muscles so good form is better than no form.
  • Fewer reps are fine. It’s better to do a few right than more and wrong.
