Can be a number of conditions actually:

Accommodative insufficiency.

Convergence insufficiency.

Your condition may also be a combination of the two.

If you have problems adjusting focus from near to far then it is accommodative infacility.

The exercise you are doing is essentially pencil pushup. Scientific literature has proven the exercise to be ineffective compared to other treatment options. I have linked a journal article which you can access: http://journals.lww.com/optvissci/Abstract/2005/07000/A_Randomized_Clinical_Trial_of_Vision.12.aspx

Don't bore yourself with the whole article. Just skip to the discussions section. If you do not improve I would either ask for a more advanced vision training technique or find another practitioner!!! Personally I would not bother with pencil push up as its pretty much just placebo effect.
