I can already hear the groans, but I’m telling you once and for all: the best exercise for a woman to learn & do is the push-up. In fact, women benefit more from this exercise than men do!
Regularly adding pushups to your workout won’t just strengthen your chest. It will also shape your shoulders, triceps, and glutes while toning and tightening your entire core. Working all those muscles at once torches tons of calories and can even help give your girls (BOOBIES) a little lift.
It’s okay if you can’t bust out pushups like a marine; you start where you are. This will give you a basis on how to work up to perfect pushups and how to keep improving them.
Note: I don’t call them “girly” push-ups. I really, really wish everyone would stop calling them that as well. It makes it okay for women to stay there without challenging themselves and makes men who can’t do a basic push-up hesitant to try the modified version. For once and for all: they are modified push-ups. NOT “girly” pushups.
