I have never had very good upper body though the rest of my body is quite fit with running. When I started doing HIIT classes last year my strength increased. I had an attempt and struggled to do 1 proper press up, reverting to doing them on my knees or on an incline.
A few weeks ago I started seeing Natalie a personal trainer. With her guidance my strength has improved massively. When she was giving me my instructions she said the dreaded word press up, a full one! Ok let’s have a go. I surprised myself and managed not one but 3 sets of 10.
Doing my PT sessions it has increased my strength. I should’ve discovered strength training earlier. Though hard I’m loving my sessions with Natalie. https://www.sarahjonesconditioning.co.uk/
