Nope, doesn't sound like a cop out, and you should never feel that way.  We all have our strengths and unique challenges when it comes to exercise.   I did not attempt toe pushups on the ground until about a year.  Besides just being very weak, my shoulder just didn't feel right initially.  So I worked on pressing off the wall, and  bench presses and flys, along with shoulder presses, with core work done separately.  At some point during this I tried toe pushups with my hands on my step bench with platforms, and realized that my shoulders had gain the necessary to strength and stability to do a couple that way.  And little by little I improved.

mrspriness07 - I used to do wall push ups alot.    My brother suggested stair push ups.  Really like those but I have trouble  back up and than up and down the stairs.

At one time my DB suggested I do stair pushups.  I decided to give it a try.  I could finally do a push up from my toes. Great. Until I tried to get up. Oh boy. At least I was laughing. My townhouse is above the garages so that day I could barely get down to check the mail.  Another option is the kitchen counter.

hello i'm new user To avoid rounding your spine and doing “banana back” pushups, try squeezing or "bracing" your core. Imagine that you're going to get punched in the belly. Naturally, you’ll flex to guard. Bracing reduces the risk of injury by enforcing a neutral spine and engages your core, making the pushup of a full body exersice.
