Re:Tips on Learning Pushups
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.
