A local woman has found herself pushing through some feminist guilt this afternoon, after a particularly gnarly HIIT class saw her taking the easier option of knees on the ground push ups, also known as ‘girlie push ups.’

Despite having always referred to this kind of modified push up as the ‘girl version’, seeing as the average woman tends to not have as much upper body strength as those who have testosterone pumping through them, Daphne Coolen [27] can’t help but feel she’s let her cause down, by not even hesitating when her trainer presented the option.

“I’m sorry, but I will choose girlie pushups every time’, says Daphne, hanging her head in shame, “I probably could maybe manage, I don’t know, one full pushup if I really tried.”

“But life is hard enough.”

More to come.
