any arms workouts for women not being able to do pushups ?

Hi fit, i 've for goal this year to be able to do at least 10 pushups in a row, the problem is that i never was able to do pushups in my life. I bought dumbells and try to exercice 2 times a week but i can't see any strenght change. I can barely do kneepushups ( 5/10 MAX before failure), do you recommend any exercices ( i cant do dips, my dumbells have currently 4 kg per arm and i can do 10 rep of overhead press or curls before failure).

        How often do you do knee push ups?

        Not enough protein in your diet? Or maybe needing to shed some weight as well - a push-up is like benching 3/4 your bodyweight.

        Try working the progression here -- start at the top, get to do 6x6, move on to the next.

        hard to believe. you should be improving with pretty much every workout. no progress can mean overtraining so maybe experiment with giving yourself more days off especially if you're still sore from the previous workout.

    The same workouts that work for men. AKA Doing it over and over until you reach your goal. You say you can't do dips, so just hold yourself up on the dip bar until you can. Do dead hangs, too. Those dumbbells will not help you, do bodyweight shit instead.

        Yes. Get a pullup bar and resistence bands (tense ones from somewhere like elitefts) and use those to help train pullup and dips. You can also do negative dips off the end of a chair. Tbh though you should think of just findind a bodywewight routine for beginners with no equipments and just keep going from there. If you're not making the progress you want to make, correct your form.

      why do you want to do 10 pushups?
      Instead, why not work on maintaining a healthy diet, and practicing that cock gag game.
      You're already physicallygood for a woman. No further work necessary.

      Thread is filled mostly good advice, however, do consider focusing on your triceps as well, as they are the second primary muscle to chest presses and most forms of pushup

      >tldr work tris too cause they might be holding you back :p

      Yeah sure man, nice tits bro, anyways you must focus on your triceps and shoulders aswell, try with negative pushups at least once a day, you have to workout like a man which means becoming retarded enough to try doing a pushup in the morning, in the afternoon and at night

    What is your weak link? What does fail at the tenth push up?

    Plank might help you core wise to hold alignment, tricep extension on the wall can strengthen arms and do push up negatives (the lowering part of push up slowly).

    Also we can’t really see your tits

    Eeeeeh besides keep doing knee pushups and eating more protein there isn't a whole lot to go with to be honest.
    Scratching my brain what I figure is do negatives (push up position from the top, go down slowly) to familiarize yourself with the muscle, knees are a little different. Maybe try flies with the dumbells? could even be a tricep issue so look some stuff to work those out
    Do you even do them in series?

    At some point you have to find ways to just force your body to increase the volume. People recommend "greasing the groove" all the time for anons struggling to get started on chin/pull ups, I don't see why it couldn't help with push ups too.
    If you haven't heard of it, it's a method where you just do tons of sub-maximal sets throughout the day. So if you're maxing out on 3 sets of 10 reps on knee push ups, try doing several sets of 7-8 or so throughout the day. Maybe every hour, or whenever you pass by the area where you usually work out. The idea is that, for a while, your body will be doing way more than 30 total in a day and will have to adapt to the extra work. You're dividing up the work differently than before so you should be able to do it. It's like eating tons of smaller meals instead of three big ones to get more calories per day.

      never heard of it, seems way more adapted to my lifestyle, and working out for 40 min is always intimidating so cutting it in smaller workout is already more appealing, do you recommend to do this on a daily basis ?

    grease the groove (look it up), if your max is 10 knee pushups then keep doing sets of 5 throughout the day (as many sets as you can) then test your max again at the end of the week. Don't forget to eat well and sleep well
    if your max is increased to let's say 20, then do the same with table pushups, then chair pushups, then normal pushups

    You do alot of kneepushups , again and again , when I couldn't do pushups I did around 100 every morning ,
    The hard part is transitioning to regular push ups , you HAVE to BELIEVE that you CAN DO IT,
    You WILL hit your face on the ground but in the end you will be able to do push ups

      Use like the back of a couch instead of the wall for a little more angle.

      i trued to us my bed and i can't yet, will try again in the future tho

      haha, thats going in the females on IST folder. I remember all of you.

      send pic of the folder or fake

    you aren't doing it enough time. Considering this takes at MOST 5 minutes, you should greatly increase volume and make it atleast 4 times a week. Also yeah, you need to increase protein too, but not in an insane way, just make sure you have more than enough

      if i follow the grease the groove technique someone recommended i should be able to do it more, and how much proteine is it roughly ? i'm 57kg and 180cm if it matters

      Aside from advice already in here, make sure you’ve got good form. Just look up a video and make sure you’re not doing something that’s making it way harder (hands close together, too low, elbows out, etc.)

      i already did this in the beggining, now i think my form is good, that's a nice advice tho thanks

      Yeah sure man, nice tits bro, anyways you must focus on your triceps and shoulders aswell, try with negative pushups at least once a day, you have to workout like a man which means becoming retarded enough to try doing a pushup in the morning, in the afternoon and at night

      another person recommended to work the triceps, it may be the issue, i'll work on that muscle more.
