There are two general reactions to press ups when they’re added to a Personal Training Programme for our clients…
“Gah, I suck at those”, or an incredulous “aren’t press ups for beginners”?
The truth is, you can get in great shape with this upper body staple, which may or may not be the oldest exercise known to man (I have no idea if that’s true, but it sounds good, doesn’t it?). It can be a tough challenge if you’ve never trained before, or if you grew up pushing a dumbbell around in a pram and snacked on protein cookies instead of Oreos
and it’s value as an exercise has sky rocketed due to it’s accessibility in 2020, with so many gyms being closed
So, the big question…. “How on earth can I programme press ups to get results?”
