Good 4 u guys I envy u I can't do 1 push up  my back muscles are weak to make a single push up any suggestions??
23 Apr
Try doing them on your knees or against the wall until you can do a real one.

Brytnt n Bryan thank u for correcting me coz I thought its all abt back muscles since it's the muscle that hurts me every time I try making push-ups. I'll try to do wat u both suggested n update u ;)
23 Apr
I had a similar issue with posture. To correct my back, I stare at my toes during the push up. My head is down and it straightens my back :)

100 ATM but I got a pulled tendon in my shoulder I use to do 150
23 Apr
Next time do 101, no one likes stopping on a odd number, maybe you will force yourself to 110.

ATP is adenosine triphosphate. It is a five-carbon sugar with three phosphates attached. It is your body's main source of energy.

Huh? How the hell does that all work? I'll look it up. Thanks.

Makes a big difference whether you do 'arms to 90 degrees' or 'chest to ground' press ups. I do chest to ground. Best for me is 62.

26 Apr
Not literally 'chest to ground' but chest an inch from the ground if you catch my drift :)
26 Apr
I hope I'm even doing them the correct way.
26 Apr
Aww I'm not saying either way is correct. Just that 'chest to floor' are a lot harder as you're you're pushing up from a lower position :-D Nobody does press-ups well when they first begin anyway. We all were rubbish at one point! :-D
27 Apr
Lol yea. I tried. they r way more difficult. Something to work toward

You need to build your core up so its strong enough to support you. Then just tighten everything up and drop it down to a 45 degree angle. Its not how many how do, because if you are doing them wrong it does you very little good.
