How can I get stronger if I can’t even do one push-up?

If you can’t do regular push-ups, start with a modified pushup! A modified pushup is one where you are in position, but on your knees instead of feet. This makes the exercise slightly easier. Start with the modified push-up and perform 3 sets of 8-10 repetitions. If you still have a hard time getting to 8-10 reps, shoot for 4-6. Do these every other day, and notice how they get easier and easier.
