West Liberty Oh Youth Soccer Sign-ups

How many push ups should we start off with - No one cannot tell you how many push ups to do that is up to you and how much you can cope with. Say though try doing 3 sets of 20 repetitions. If this is too easy you can always do more the next time.

Do we have to do push ups everyday - There is no reason to do push-ups and sit-ups every day but if you wanted to something like 2 or 3 days of them and then 1 day off of them would probably work alright. Just start off with 3 sets of 20 repetitions and just like push-ups if that is too easy add more repetitions can anyone tell me proper techniques of doing pushups and situps.

When doing a push ups we will assume you mean chest as that is one of the dominate muscles used in a push up. The farther out you have your arms the more it works your chest and the closer in they are it works your triceps. So what you heard was backwards. Your hands can really be where ever you want them but you should start out with them just a little wider than shoulder width.

Anyway I recommend you do sit-ups, push-ups, chin-ups, pull-ups, leg raises, squats, calf raises, lunges and any more you can think of. These are all good for improving your strength and speed and they only use your own body resistance, plus you don't really need any gym equipment for them.
