About the training

However, just try it and if you find it too hard just decrease the number of sets and reps and have longer rests between. Or you can do the mentioned easy push-ups for women if you find a move too difficult.

Overall, it is great push-ups workout routine for girls you can do once or twice a week to strengthen your entire upper body.
