I agree that you should do a modified version of the push up and work your way up to the one in the dvd. Remember you are only using 10 lb weights and a push up is your body weight. You will get there...

One day or day one. You decide.

This is pretty good and doesn't require any special equipment:

Do modified push ups. Examples are knee push ups, bench push ups, against a counter top or even a wall. Try using a progressively more difficult kind every couple of weeks until you are strong enough to start doing a few regular ones. Whatever kind you do needs to max out your effort within 10 to 15 reps. I am 62 and usually do knee push ups, but can manage a few regular push ups. I am hoping to eventually be able to do a few pull ups.

Resistance band chest press (or Google alternative to push-ups).

I am 64 years old and have been doing strength training for the past 5 months using DVD's. I am up to using 10 lbs of weight and I use bands. Problem is...this video has a lot of push ups and I can't do even ONE!!! Should I be able to do pushups at age 64??? Also, what can I do as an alternative?
