Workout stuff

Like most women, my upper body is not as strong as it could be. Since I've been strength training I've been working on the upper body and it shows great improvement, but it's still not where I would like it to be.

One of the things that I don't do well is a push up. I can do the girly ones, you know on your knees! But I really can't do a full one, okay, not true, I can squeak out one or two but that's all. I have never, ever done a perfect push up. So I've decided to work on my push ups. I'm going to start doing them everyday until I can do 10 full ones in a row.

One of the main problems I have is with my wrists. Putting my hands flat on the floor creates great pressure in my wrists and it hurts. I've heard to do them on a dumbbell but that scares me. Well, check this out. I've found something that will help me do the perfect push up. Not only does it provide a raised handle to hold on to and a stable base, it turns as your arms would naturally turn when you punch allowing you to work more muscles and do a perfect push up.

You have no idea how exciting that is. I think this might be just what I need to help me do a correct push up. I'm also looking for a pull up bar so if you see a good one somewhere let me know :)
