Bent knee push ups...

FAAuk

Midshipman
Why do most females usually do bent knee push ups while the males do normal push ups? Is it purely down to body strength or is there a particular reason for it?

Always wondered about it but never found a reason.

Everyone does the same type to the best of my knowledge (certainly Army PFTs).

Used to be some old bollocks about the damage to reproductive organs if girls did normal ones IIRC

Well that's all right, I mean it's not like we expect them to be strong enough to secure hatches or anything strenuous is it....er. :wink:

Birds still do knee push ups and they have an extra week to run the RNFT.

I'm going to re apply, I could do the RNFT in a week
