Check out this article in the NY Times on push-ups. Most of my clients can do better push-ups than those on the video. The trainer is great, too. Even though it is evident that the girls cannot do a push-up, he is yelling at them to try clap-push-ups! I would have fired this trainer on the spot-we all cannot do push-ups, but how about starting with elevated push-ups, teach the client how to stablize their shoulders and torso, develop a full range of motion, and then progress the difficulty.
