I've learned that it's good to push yourself to new levels of fitness, such as pushing through that little bit of sickness when your doing a new workout to get those last few reps in, or talking to yourself to say you can do this next routine your worth it and your strong enough keep going!!!
You'll never find out just what your capible of until you push it!

Wall push-ups are a good way to get more upper-body exercise when you may not have time for floor push-ups, or maybe you're not so great at floor push-ups. They benefit chest, shoulders, arms/triceps, and core muscles. Step back just a little (safely) to "lean into the wall" more, and make the push-ups a bit more challenging. If you need to protect a wall from natural oil from your hands, try wearing non-slip or rubber gloves.
I get to a point where I am comfortable and do not push myself, I'm afraid to push harder because I do not think I can. When I do say, "it's time, just do it" I find that I can push beyond where I think I am. Just pushing myself that little bit more increases the intensity without making my workout longer but I still start to see losses again.
