I couldn’t do them.
They caused pain in my shoulders, a lingering injury from a car accident many moons ago.
And they made me feel WEAK.
And I hate feeling weak (does anyone actually ENJOY that?!), so I would avoid doing them. I would just chalk it up to I am not meant to do pushups, and do something less painful. No harm, no foul right?
Wrong. Because DOING them – first in a modified format, then in the real way – is what strengthened me. I participated in my own group called Guns Buns and Abs, and each day called for additional pushups… and so I did them. And I got better. And somewhere along that line, the pain stopped.
If you take any moral from this, it’s your only limitations exist in your head. EVICT them, and watch yourself FLOURISH!
Do you struggle with pushups?
