I am a girl with pretty weak upper body strength (I think). I started doing Mark's LHT workouts a couple weeks ago and for the push-up section I started with level 1 - the standing wall push. I can do two sets of 40 of those without too much problem. I do get fatigued and I do feel it in my muscles, but I can complete the reps. So this week I moved on to level 2 push-ups which are the knee push-ups (girl push ups is what I always heard them called, lol). I am really struggling with these. I can barely do TWO full ones (nose to the ground), I struggle to push back up. If I only go halfway down I can eek out about 16 or so (the goal is 30) but I feel like I am cheating because I am not going all the way down. I'm surprised I was ok with level 1 and am having this much trouble with level 2 push-ups. Is there anything in between that I can do to build my strength? Is it important to do the full range (nose to the ground) to get the benefit? If so should I just continue doing like 2 or 3 till my arms give out or what? I am at a loss here on how to proceed.
No announcement yet.
