GIRL PUSH-UPS... Arggghhh!
Someone said to me the other day that I was lucky because I can do push-ups! Yup! I am so lucky.
The only luck I have is that I am determined. When I got back on my feet from being sick in 2011/12, I could not do even half a push-up. Now I do pretty advanced ones and lots of them. Why? Well determination, number 1, but number 2, I started off doing 1 proper one, not 10 half-arsed versions of a push-up. I only went to my knees when I was truly fatigued and could no longer lift my body weight. I practiced every day too.
So if you want to do push-ups on your toes, never put the words "girl" and "push-up" into the same sentence. What a croc, it's a cop-out. If you are determined, you work hard and you practice, you can do them, I promise.
If you are unsure how to do one, look at wikiHow or YouTube. Think about this, have you ever tried to pick up a flippy-floppy kid? They just seem heavier. Pick them up when they are rigid, way easier? Same as push-ups, keep everything rigid and strong and you will have far more likelihood of success.
Remember I am no exercise guru, I have no fitness qualifications, only what I have learnt myself. This photo depicts good form and 3 versions of something that is not a push-up.
