Can't Do Push Ups

Posted by: C R ( ryanca@boat.bt.com)

I am a 25 year old 140lb female who has been lifting for about 8 months. I'm pretty happy with the gains I've made except for my general upper body strength. I can't do decent push ups (except 'girlie' ones on my knees, I can do loads of them!). I'm working chest pretty hard at the moment and can feel the difference but I just can't do push-ups! Any advice please? Am I being impatient or is it that girls just can't do pushups?

I've been in the Army for 10 years now and can do many push ups (best max was 120 in two minutes at strict from) Im a 30 year old male and weight training has definately helped me out. I have helped females strugling to pass a PT test in the past and what Ive had them do is the following: When doing pushups, there are 3 body parts being trained, besides the chest you are using your shoulders and tricepts. You should train these body parts with many repetitions and , when doing pushups, vary the distance between your hands. My final advice is to do pushups frequelntly during the day. The reason I say this is because during basic training, this is what our drill sergeants have the trainees do constantly, pushups, pushups and more pushups. Eventually everyones max goes up. Good luck.
