If mastering five, 10, 20, or more push-ups has always been a fitness goal of yours, but you can barely do one or two reps without struggling, try this 10-minute push-up progression workout. Led by NASM-certified personal trainers Julius White and LaToya Johnson, who run One Body LA, this workout is made up of eight different bodyweight exercises to help you build strength in the muscles you'll need to master push-ups, including the chest, triceps, shoulders, and core.

Depending on your current strength and fitness level, Johnson told POPSUGAR that she recommends people do this workout at least two to three times throughout the week in order to achieve noticeable improvements over time. She added, "We designed it to be able to do at the end of a workout as a finisher, or as a great upper-body workout warmup." If some of these exercises are too difficult, elevate your hands on a sturdy coffee table, chair, box, or bench. And as you get stronger, you can do these moves without resting on your knees.
