Fitness Poll: Do You Do Push-ups?

Do You Do Push-Ups?

A lot of women can't do many (or any) push-ups, often resulting in failing initial fitness tests. Is this a result of simply just being a woman, or of not strength training enough? I think the latter and a recent SF Gate article details how commonplace it is for women to often shy away from push-ups while sticking to the more feminine cardio machines, leaving the push ups to the men.

I have to say I am guilty of this. Yes, I will do the occasional push up, but I know I need to do more if I am looking to improve my overall strength. My husband on the other hand, will do push-ups until the cows come home, but try and get that man on a treadmill and you've got another thing coming for ya.

So of course I'm curious — what about you guys, do you do push-ups?
