I’m a huge fan of being able to do a proper pushup — and I’m decidedly NOT a fan of the knee-push-ups. Why? Because the knee ones may not be ~bad~ per se, but they don’t leave you with anywhere to go. You can’t progress! There’s no ramp-up from a knee pushup, other than going directly to a standard push-up, and rarely do you see someone make that leap. So, over on Nylon, I put together a series of pushup progressions that ANYONE can do, that take under 1 minute per day, and will have you doing a proper push-up in just a few weeks. (Plus getting a solid mini-strength workout in on the daily.) The secret? Slow, incremental progress (shocker, I know). So if you’ve always struggled to do a pushup, or maybe you can even do a couple but would like to see yourself make more progress, I’d love it if you checked out the full story.
