Default Nsv: Pushups!

So I met with my new trainer yesterday. She is BUFF BUFF BUFF and works me harder than my last trainer. Anyways, she got me doing pushups, I knew I could do like 3 man pushups but I guess my hands weren't positioned/aligned properly. So she showed me the right positioning and I did 10! TEN!!! I can't believe I did 10 man pushups and 2 reps!....when I started I couldn't even do 1 meesly jumping jack or even 1 pushup. I never thought I would get here

every 5lbs lost

Congrats on the pushups! Yup, it's all about the hand positioning, I agree. Makes you feel like a rock star when you can bang out ten in a row, doesn't it?

Congrats! Doing a full pushup (not a girly one) is one of my biggest fitness goals.
