I didn't know there was such a thing as a 'ladies' press up.
Vicky, I think they're supposed to be easier because the chair is taking some of your body weight....! I started off doing about 5 but can now do 2 sets of 20 so they must work! That's taken approx. 6 weeks of doing them 2-3 times a week. Like you, I've been trying to change my running style but also improve my core strength and the press ups are just part of that. I'm definitely starting to feel stronger when I'm running but I'm not sure whether that's down to the exercises, the change in running style or all the hill work I've been doing - maybe a combination of all three?!
