"More Strength, More Confidence" in Oxygen magazine's Off the Couch Collector's Issue:

"The push-up is the little black dress of exercises:  simple and understated, with enough versatility to make it perfect for all occasions," writes Karen Asp  in her article "More Strength, More Confidence" featuring my six week Push Up Progression in Oxygen magazine's current Off the Couch Collector's Issue. The title of the article comes from my quote that mastering the push up "builds confidence and self-esteem, especially when you achieve something you thought was out of reach." There's a variation of the push up to suit every level of fitness, and you can work the progression from easy to more difficult, building strength as you advance. Best of all, you can do them any time, any place, no equipment required – no excuses! download pdf article here
