If you missed your target goal for push-up don’t worry, you can train to increase your strength. If You could perform less than 5, begin by performing the push-ups on your knees. This will lighten the load a little and allow you to train the muscles involved. Perform these for 2 weeks, progressively increasing the number performed each time. After 2 weeks perform the push up test again and record the numbers. Continue with this exercise until you can reach the minimum number standard.
