The Girly Kind
My arms are shaking as I type this post. I finally got around to doing this today. Not just my regular push-ups, but a push-up experiment. It turns out I can do 113 girl modified push-ups with good form. That’s after doing these exercises (10 reps and 2 sets each) and a yoga class earlier in the day.
Next week we’ll do a military style push-up test to compare. I already know that I can only do about 35. I would much rather do 35 regular push-ups instead of 100′s of modified push-ups. Surprisingly, my shoulders were burning like crazy towards the end. I’m going to be sore tomorrow and I hope you are too!
When you think about what exercises to include in your workout do you choose easier exercises that require more repetition? Or do you choose a more challenging exercise and perform fewer reps?
