I'm Ryan George, and this is the best ways to increase push up reps. Push ups are one of the best exercises that you can do, but sometimes you just reach a sticking point where it's hard to increase the repetitions. Luckily, there's some great strategies in order to improve that. So if you do regular push ups and you find that you can only do let's say 10 repetitions and you're stuck at 10 reps and you can't increase, then what you do is you'd actually find a harder movement, and hopefully by doing the harder movement, when you go back to the regular push ups you'll be able to do more. So you can do it with a wider hand position, a more narrow hand position, or you can do a explosive push up where you're actually generating a lot more power. If you do that for let's say five repetitions, when you come back to your regular push ups a few days later, you'll find that you'll have a little bit more strength because you've done something much harder. The alternative to that is to actually find an easier movement. So let's say you're doing your 10 push ups. At the end of your tenth rep, you would drop your knees to the floor and do a push up from the knees, and you can add a couple more repetitions to that. Or you would do a shorter range push up, so instead of going all the way down and all the way up, you would go halfway down. So you add a few more of those. So then by adding and pushing yourself once you're at your limit, you'll be able to increase your push up reps over time.
