So you’re weak, what do you do about it?

Now that you know you’re weaker than you want to be, what do you do about it? Well, first, remember that ANYTHING is better than nothing.

So if you can only do one push-up now, aim to be able to do two, then three, and eventually ten or fifteen. You do need to train for the exercises you want to be strong at. Do the same for pull-ups.

But how does that make me strong for life?

Strength is the ability to exert force against a load. So exercises that require strength enable you to exert force in other domains too.

Like if you can do squats and push-ups then you’ll be able to get your body off the ground if you trip, because you have the strength to do so.

The basic strength exercises prepare you for the basic movements that require strength. Squats, deadlifts, pull-ups, push-ups, sit-ups, planks, presses – these are the movements you NEED to do in order to be a strong human.
