    Awesome! I got my wife and 13 yo daughter to complete the 30 day push up challenge – now to get them to focus on proper form and daily attack! The article referencing your vid helps support my cause! BIG THANKS!

      and did they lose weight? maybe i am gonna do it and i wanna see

    • DCoreB on July 24, 2022 at 12:17 pm

      @•Shådøw._.Aftøn• It should result in some burning of fat, but gaining and losing weight is most affected by eating habits.

  3. TMD3453 on August 1, 2020 at 3:41 pm

    Thanks, always wondered about the elbows! All the best!

  4. Rose Whipple on August 18, 2020 at 9:57 pm

    Thank you so much!!! I’ve struggled with push ups literally my entire life.

    • Well+Good on August 19, 2020 at 3:20 pm

      So glad this helped!

  5. Changmins Glasses on October 8, 2020 at 10:43 pm

    This is very effective, but I wasn’t able to completely do it because my arms don’t have that much strength.

    • Emperor on August 2, 2021 at 11:52 am

      I used to not even be able to do it once properly, but after practicing every day for a week, I could do it 10 times in one go properly. Although I can’t do them anymore because I haven’t done it for months now.

    • Changmins Glasses on August 2, 2021 at 2:15 pm

      @Emperor Same🤣

    • SkySparrow on October 2, 2021 at 1:58 pm

      I can do about 15 but if you keep doing it then you can do it more

    • lily on December 10, 2021 at 8:19 pm


    • Changmins Glasses on December 11, 2021 at 1:20 am

      @lily I can’t do it anymore. I didn’t keep up with it. So if you keep up with it, you will stay with it!

  6. beats me on October 31, 2020 at 12:15 am

    This helped me a lot! Thanks. By the way, is it normal that my wrist would hurt after executing several push ups?

  7. Annesha Borah on November 10, 2020 at 7:08 pm

    Thank You very much. This helped a lot.

  8. Alin Pos on December 11, 2020 at 1:24 am

    Whenever I try and do a push up it looks like I’m humping the floor 😂😂💀

    • R O O B E E on February 7, 2021 at 4:12 pm


    • mia on March 16, 2021 at 8:58 pm

    • Valerie kookiee on October 15, 2021 at 6:25 am


  9. AxcidRain on March 15, 2021 at 2:35 am

    I hurt my back so much from doing a few I know what you are going to say “just make sure your back is straight” I know I use to be able to do 30 reps with no problem and could lift 20 pounds like it was 5 pounds, so I know my posture but, I’m afraid that my joints aren’t yet ready again to be doing it.

    • harshita harsh on April 16, 2021 at 11:14 am

      Stretch beforehand maybe…. For a couple of days

  10. this is fine. on March 15, 2021 at 3:22 am

    How can I go lower? Whenever I do a push-up, I only do it half-way :(( Should I lose weight to go lower or…? Thanks in advance! :))

    • ขลัง on May 13, 2021 at 10:11 pm

      It’s a matter of strength I think, although I think loosing weight is obviously going to help

    • Cheer_50 on February 17, 2022 at 10:18 pm

      litterally same. i feel like its muscle mass and gaining muscle because there are “fat” people who are seriously muscular and can do these things real easy. i think going lower is just practice and engaging other muscles other than arms.

  11. RAA @Alawi fitness on April 16, 2021 at 1:45 am

    Thanks for a great explanation about push ups💯👍

  12. Anu Balaji on May 12, 2021 at 4:10 pm

    She made it look so easy but when I try it that’s when the reality hits

    • CC on April 26, 2022 at 6:08 pm

      Lmao! Why is to so easy in the videos

    • supermexicanmia on June 9, 2022 at 8:31 pm

      LMAOO ME

    • Venessa Awuor on August 23, 2022 at 4:01 am

      😂😂😂😂😂you made my day 😂😂😂

    • Acdragonrider on August 28, 2022 at 8:18 pm

      @brop Doesn’t weight lift make you shorter?

  13. Sergio Capossio on May 31, 2021 at 10:39 pm

    Always so nice to watch and learn from you!

  14. Nguyễn Dung on July 17, 2021 at 1:03 pm

    It’s so hard for me but I’m trying!

  15. Remo Skins on November 26, 2021 at 5:26 pm

    From looking at many videos on youtube, everyone has their idea of what a “right way” is. Being in your twenties and only weighing 90 pounds makes it look easy. If you’re a bit older and have more weight on you it’s much tougher. I like the way she shows this excersise so I’ll stick with this channel and see how it goes. BTW, I’m a guy. 😁

  16. IKECH545 on January 31, 2022 at 5:32 am

    If you can’t do a full form push up, start on the stairs for a week. After the stairs do them on your knees, after knees doing full form negatives, then you’ll be very well on your way to be able to do a good full set!

  17. mawar_ ayshaa on March 9, 2022 at 3:36 am

    thank you so much !!! thats so clear and easily can understand

  18. Marlee Costilla on April 1, 2022 at 1:16 pm

    I’m working on my strength, going strong for almost 2 months now!
    When I started I couldn’t do push ups without the support of my knees. Now I’m up to 8 full push ups without pause! This video helped me with form.

    • Valean Madalina on June 22, 2022 at 6:45 pm

      What kind of exercises did you do?

  19. Annika on May 18, 2022 at 11:34 pm

    this is my assigned task for pe but I couldn’t ace the muscle down back and forth since it is really hard for women. lack of muscle strength:(( I hope the one who gives me a jackpot will be able to know how hard for the beginners to perform especially to the women.

  20. Asso on September 30, 2022 at 1:59 am

    About a month ago I watched this video Then I thought my Arm were weak because I couldn’t lift myself off the ground.Now I can do ten push-ups in a row, thank you.

    • Well+Good on September 30, 2022 at 2:11 pm
