    Push-up question for 90 days of action

    Hello everyone,

    I need some guidance for the push up portions of the 90 days of action.

    On day 1 and 9, the workouts asked for 30 push ups total. I noticed that by push up 27-30, my arms were barely holding my weight and I could almost complete them with a lot of effort.

    Day 13 is now asking for 20 push ups for each set.

    Does anyone have any recommendations on how to modify the push ups so that I can still build up strength and eventually do more than 30 without collapsing and feeling muscle pain for a couple of days?

    I appreciate any guidance given.

    Xois, I suggest you do as many push-ups as you can with good form and when it starts to fail, you finish off the set with modifications. One option is to change the position of your arms (wider will be easier), another option is to do knee push-ups and if neither if those two work, you could do wall push-ups.

      Hi Ann-Core, thank you for the suggestions, will definitely be trying them on Sunday when I'm on day 13.

      Will let you know how it goes.

      I'm definitely looking towards that day with less fear now.

        That's the way I usually do it too, when the number of pushup in a row is too high: as many pushup as I can with good form, then I finish the set with knee pushup.
