Probably good for beginners

dongle dangle

I just got this app today but from what I can tell when you do real push up where you’re chin is hitting the phone it doesn’t seem to register or if you go too fast also I think I accidentally chose a beginner level because it started me out at 7 push-ups, I’ll try again tomorrow I guess
