5 Rules For Better Pushups. SKIP KNEE PUSHUPS. Most people aren’t able to start with a full pushup straight away. At least, not with good form. (If you are, count yourself TRY ECCENTRIC PUSHUPS. KEEP YOUR “ELBOW PITS” FACING FORWARD.

SQUEEZE YOUR INNER THIGHS FOR BETTER CORE ENGAGEMENT. USE THIS. Next, practice the straight-arm plank: After your workout, hold the top position of the pushup with perfect form as long as you can.. Work up to holding it for 30 seconds to one minute. Once you can do three or more push-ups with your hands on the floor level and you can hold a straight-arm plank for at least 30 seconds, it’s time to move on to the next level.

Engage your core muscles by trying to bring your belly button toward your spine, then slowly lower your body toward the ground while keeping your neck and spine aligned no drooping allowed. When your chest is about the size of a fist away from the ground, slowly press back up to full plank position. Repeat!Pushups are a great upper-body workout, touted for their ability to develop a strong, muscular chest, cannonball shoulders, and arms worthy of recognition. However, there are many other things.

Pushups give you so much bang for your buck. They not only work your chest, but you’ll also feel the burn in your shoulders, triceps, and your entire core. But doing the same exercise all the. It’s no shocker that pushups seriously challenge your upper half. You are, after all, bending your arms to lower and lift your entire body. “Pushups are a great upper-body strengthener,” says Stephanie Mansour, Chicago-based certified personal trainer.That’s because they work essentially your entire upper half, including the front of your chest, both the front and back of your arms (aka biceps.

This guide on how to do a perfect push up from Men’s Health fitness director Ebenezer Samuel and fitness editor Brett Williams teaches the proper form with progressions for beginners. Doing better push-ups: proper execution. As we’ve said, push-ups are a common exercise, both for people who train in a sports center and for those who decide to train at home. Although it’s very common for people to do push-ups, most of the time you’ll notice that their technique isn’t the best. Begin lowering your body by bending your elbows, keeping your core tight and your back flat, until your chest grazes the floor.

Keep your elbows tucked in. Basically, do 200 push-ups in as few sets as possible in addition to your regularly scheduled workout of cardio exercises. Rule. If your maximum is under 50 pushups, do 200 a day.

  • Can you please post a video on divebomber pushups or Hindu pushups? This one is an all rounder yet there’s hardly any mention by the calisthenics community.

  • Hey Scott, great video as always! Would love to if you upload a video about how do the lifter knows if he/she is doing the proper form of deadlift? Like when you’re deadlifting, you know you’re on proper form. But the question is, how do people know they are doing it properly without a mirror in front of them? What are the tips and quirks we should check ourselves mentally when we’re doing the deadlift, especially when we’re deadlifting 90% of our capacity? Thanks as always!

  • My problem was the speed and extended arms. Together my left arm gave up and it felt like it dislocated. Resulting to me not being able to pick up and basically use my left arm

  • If you have trouble concentrating, relaxing or you need Music to do exercise or yoga this channel is really very good, it helped me a lot, Perfect Harmony Music ������ https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCyG2mO7pw1pNsrIl5-8-8UQ

  • So I’m a heavier person and don’t have the strongest chest whatsoever. I used this technique on incline pushups today. Thoughts on the incline and will it help to eventually be able to do more normal ones?

  • push up has so many variations,you can’t say you’re right with your own views!!!lol!!!
    as long as injury did not exist, And would be the right position for excersizes!!!

  • Need help on tip 2 ( 1:40) I feel like I have a really hard timing not doing the elbow flare/ bending my elbows towards body, and when I do it it feels like I’m doing it in a bad form any tips?

  • My muscles look tuned enough to where I should be able to do a push up but my muscles just feel stiff and don’t want to move when I try to do it is there something that I might not be doing right

  • lol dang such good control. amazing. I have done so many pushups, i’m sure most incorrectly. I use the elevated handles at 45 degrees or so, i find my wrists can’t handle it as well anymore and i like the finger/grab strengthening. Oh i’m sure my hands are way forward compared to where his hands are. i think my engagement is good though, when my form goes i know it’s time to stop. i also enjoy the slow pushups and now a hard ball that i roll to the other hand, using the elevated handles.

  • Ok this video cut my reps in exactly half:-)
    (I was not doing full range of motion only half way down, pluss broad arms and fast pushups)
    Thank you for tips and fixing my form.

  • **ATTENTION* anyone that is broke and need money fast please purchases this course asap. You can think me later for the info. @t

  • hey man, was wondering if you could do a video regarding workers/ laborers out on the job all day, in the heat, and not having enough umph to train year round like i’d like. missing sessions, guilt sets in, can never really keep progressing, etc. love the content man!

  • Trust me this really works.I couldn’t even do even a single pushup.I started doing 8 negative pushups for the first week and second and third week I did 10 and 4th week 12.Finally now I am able to do my first pushup after 1 month of hardwork.Don’t forget to give 2 days rest per week.

  • Stfu…. elbow flares help build the chest. There are mistakes but can be done well. This vid uses zero anatomy, 100% opinions. Some true but others Bullshit

  • Thanks for another great video Scott!! Although I understand and know exactly what you mean by tucking the arms in I believe alot of people still don’t have the mind muscle connection and the elbows with still want to flare into internall rotation causing laxity and pain maybe in some individuals. What I have found from my personal experience is screwing my hands into the ground twisting the elbows externally creating stability in the glenoid joint between the humerus and scapula works best. In the bench I find the shorty rogue red band between wrists helps me cue the pulling the bar apart. After injuries I’ve literally had to relearn the lifts and it’s not so easy the second time around. I’m a seasoned lifter an old fella over 40 and have learned the hard way. Any laxity or hypermobility is a loss in performance possibly leading to injury. I’ve managed to stay in the game thanks to valuable resources such as your YouTube channel. There are many others on here and to be honest most of them are garbage.I wish I had these valuable resources 20 years ago I’d be unstoppable. Through years of study and research I’ve narrowed a few sources of valuable information down and your chanel is top of the list. Again thanks alot for your contribution to all of this. You’re giving people a fighting chance keeping it real. When I was your age I had magazines and experience lifters. The magazines were teaching alot of garbage and often the experienced lifters have already learned bad habits. Now with sites such as yours the margins for error have really narrowed down and training for longevity is now most important and should be attainable by nearly anyone who can commit to a little bit of time. My shortlist of athletes,trainers,and sports therapists have taken me to new found functional levels of training and to be honest at my age I’m in better shape now than ever. I’m a natural lifter and I have no problem keeping up to the best of them at my local gym. I just play safe and it keeps me in the game. Thanks again brother I look forward to watching your chanel.

  • I’m trying to do 100 push-ups everyday so far I’m on my fourth day thank you for this video starting tomorrow I’ll practice on the form

  • After listening to so many wrongs,anyone is going to get demotivated and stop doing the exercise altogether..
    something is better than nothing..but nw they are nt going to do that something

  • “big puffy muscle” doesnt exist naturally from normal training. The way you train does not influence how muscle grows. The way and form muscle develops is due to genetics, muscle bellies, and insertions.

  • I dont do ANY of these or any other mistakes I find. I still cant feel anything in my chest. I feel it in my elbows. Also my palm is in pain. Should I just give up?

  • You should do the prmc that royal marines do, like the run, press ups, pull ups and sit ups, and beep test, you can find these on youtube

  • wait is this the dude I saw in another video do 210 in a row with absolute perfect form (and even started out doing slow motion push-ups)? 3:07

  • nice video…ps if you have wrist pain and NO dumbell or such,practise pushup on your fists (the lower 3 knockles) its great to strengthen your knockles and your wrists aswell

  • Why am I afraid to walk my feet against the wall? I feel like I’m going to fall on my head. Good information guys keep the info coming.

  • why do i see so many people do pushups with flaired elbows? In the movies,yt videos,everywhere? I always thought it was a different kind of pushup.

  • 5 ways to incease your push ups

    [ 03:26] 1. To do test your maximum push ups multiple times a day.
    How does a good push up looks like and how should you place your hands. Place your hands in line with your shoulders and try to spread your fingers for more stabiliation. And from here you going to do as much as push ups possible.
    A good method is to do 50 push ups in the morning, then in ther afternoon and in the evening you try to beat it again. The next day you take some rest and the day after you so it over again.

    [ 04:35] 2. To do a lot of weighted push ups
    They are really good to increase strength in your chest and shoulders. If you can do 20 push up with 15kg, bodyweight push ups become a lot easier.
    I actually haven’t done much bodyweight push ups, but more way more weighted and i always tracked my progress in my logbook which played a crucial part in my progress.

    [ 05:54] 3. To do straight arm planks
    Your core will colapse when you are doing over a 100 push ups. Because you will be in this plank position for more than 4/5 minutes. At a certain point, its not yout chest that can’t hold it anymore, but your core.
    So you want to strenghten your core in that straight arm plank position.
    Stand in a push ups position and try to hold this for a minimum of 3 to 4 minutes. If you managed to reach this, you can move on to weighted straight-arm plank holds.
    Place the weight on your lower back, because this is the area where it becomes heavy. Make sure that you’ll straigthen your arms completely. Don’t hang in your shoulders, but protract your scapula. Hold this as long as possible, minimal 1 minute. If you managed to this, you can move on to heavier weights.

    [ 07:17] 4. To work on your scapula strength
    You can do this with the scapula push ups.
    Arms are straight and from here you protract and retract your scapula. Try to create a hollow back (Cat-pose). Try to make at least 6 reps, with good form.
    When you stand for a longer period of time in push up position, you will feel the burden in your front and rear delt. So the stronger the scapula gets, the longer you can hold in this position.

    [ 08:24] 5. Get as lean as possible
    The more bodyfat you carry on, the harder bodyweight exercises become. So try to be as lean as possible.
    This all comes down to your training methods and your nutrition intake.

  • Dang you guys are strong btw guys I did 50 push-ups today tomorrow I will do 50 push-ups in the morning and do 50 more pushups in the evening
    Btw I’m 9 years old don’t judge ��‍⚖️ me

  • Lekker bezig @Calisthenics Family eindelijk een video in het Nederlands. Kunnen jullie dit vaker doen een video in het Nederlands. Ik kijk deze video omdat het nu een raren tijd is en doe nu veel push ups Stay Strong��������❤️❤️

  • This was a great video. I’ve done push ups for years and have always had some shoulder pain. Sure enough I have been letting my arms go out to the side. I starting doing my push up correctly and there is more effort required but it does feel more natural and strengthening. The video was also good for me be aware the correct form.
    Thank you

  • Wow! The arm plank gradually increased my push ups row. I started it like 3 weeks ago and know from 40 push ups in a row, I’m doing 70 in a row. �� so great! Thank you!

  • My fitness is quite good,i can do 50-55 push-ups with 10-13 chinups in a row but still facing a last layer of belly fat,plz suggest me the exercises/workout to lose fat and build muscle except cardio,just make sure that i m not a beginner i can do double clap pushups as well……..and i just subscribed this channel

  • US Army Military Police method. 1st week = 10 good push-ups every hour for 8 hrs / 2nd week = increase by 5 / 3rd week = increase by 10 by the 4th week should be able to do 25 to 30 each hr during an 8 hr day. Continue until you get to 50 in a row per hr. Push-ups will be too easy to do. after that during an actual physical fitness test.

  • 100 pushups
    100 situps
    100 squats
    20k walk
    30k ride…that was my success…everyday at age 54…put your mind to it, and you can do it!

  • Ik heb vaak mijn handen iets voor mijn schouders staam bij push ups, maakt dat iets uit? Of is het het beste dat ik de techniek opnieuw aanleer met handen onder de schouders? Super video:) keep going

  • I came from browneys channel + is maxing out push-up throughout the day better than maxing out then resting for 90 seconds for 5 sets

  • Bedankt voor de tips kan ik wel gebruik van maken ik ben calaesthetics begonen ik hope dat dit resultaat brengt groetjes uit Canada

  • Why does it hurt so much unless I flare my elbows? I could only do 3 excruciating push ups with elbows not flared?! Why is it toes feel like they are being murdered with or without our shoes? And what to do about it?

  • If I were to do 21s with push ups, in what order would I do wide, regular, and close grip, or should I just do it the regular way?

  • So what is the right way to do push ups i see everyone saying this is wrong and also this is wrong and this and that is there even a right way?

  • I was actually wondering if I was doing a push-up correctly. I have been doing them with my elbows out, but now I know! And knowing is half the battle.

  • I hate push ups. Which means I should probably do more of them.

    My suggestion for a new golden rules video, bodyweight squats and some variations! I see lots of people just faff about while doing this and would love to learn something new about the movement.

  • Greetings from Mexico!!!
    What kind of supplements do you take?
    Or you can talk about cheap supplements?
    I love your videos
    Congratulations!!!

  • I want to deliver much more than “proper form” in my how to videos. I want to also show you guys how to maximize the efficiency of each movement and progress with it as well. So while I do plan on covering all exercises, I would like to focus on the ones you guys need the most first. So comment below which exercise you would like the next video to be about and THUMBS UP the comments as well so I can see which ones are highest priority! Now lets keep #BreakingTheNattyLimit
    PUSH, PULL, LEGS PROGRAM!BUILD MUSCLE & STRENGTH – http://muscularstrength.com/Push-Pull-Legs

  • Full range of motion right now for me is going down as far as possible while still keeping a straight line. My current push ups goal is to do a full pushups where my chest touches the floor while maintaining proper form

  • THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS “THE GOLDEN RULES”!! there are many variations of pushups Scott.. In martial arts and MMA we perform all sort of these vars, such as full range, half range and a quarter
    range rep variations (fast motion) with both tucked and flared elbows, the latter to target your neuro system charging phase and stamina boost

  • i can do all those variations, maybe more than that but still i don’t have any good physique but i have strength in my arms and chest………but i wanna look good

  • Hey Scott, I’d like to think my form is pretty good but I mainly feel the tension in my shoulders and triceps and not as much as I’d like in the chest area. My hand are positioned at my “nipple line”, arms tucked etc.. not sure what I’m doing wrong?

  • I started focusing on mind-muscle connection and my muscle imbalances are vanishing. Also, now I can feel 100% of my left side working (I’m a beginner). Thanks Scott, love from Brazil.

  • Hey Scott great video as always… May i ask you something that is it really possible that getting a well sculpted chest with just doing push ups and its’ variations, dips and ring fly kind of bodyweight(calisthenics) stuff. I’ll be very happy if you share ur honest opinion thank you sir:)

  • I’m getting shoulder pain while I do push-ups, while i do get really sore in my triceps I’m forced to do push ups every 3 days due to having to let my shoulders heal. I do push ups with full range of motion but I’m questioning whether my hand positioning is correct. I usually have them directly beneath my shoulders with my elbows tucked in.

  • Thanks Scott you’re my idol. My arm muscles is very tight. It doesn’t expand from a long time. Would u suggest me what to do for bigger biceps.

  • I am still confused. Got lots of Don’ts and not enough Do’s. At the end needed a “so do it like this” “arms any where from here to here” sort of thing

  • So Diamond push-up, ok, thats nice, the others require a nice physic already BEFORE you can do them in proper form. And the monkey pushup, sorry, you should mention that it can be very damaging to your elbow joints if you fall right into them. So skip right to spiderman push up after. Then you can increase by doing archer pushups. And fuck that “ninja” style, seriously, except for the spiderman+step its flashy and its dangerous and its counter productive to your joints.

    So in that order of training: Normal pushups, proper form, then spiderman + step, then archer and then maybe you can put up your legs from there to get more strength…

  • Hi Tapp brothers! I’m just starting out with parkour, and I don’t have a lot of upper body strength to do top outs or pushups. Any tip to gain upper body strength

  • Hey Scott, big fan of your channel. You have inspired me to start my fitness journey. I am started it some months before and currently I am doing mainly body weight excercises and some dumbbells.

    Since I am a beginner, I am trying to accumulate as much information as I can to do all my workouts correctly, I have a big doubt regarding one of the classic excercises, “the crunches”. In some articles/YouTube videos I see that crunches are bad for our spine, and in some places they are telling it’s fine.

    So I humbly request you to clear this doubt, and if crunches are not harmful to our body, could you please create a video on how to perform crunches in correct form?

    I have posted this question in many fitness pages and didn’t get a satisfactory reply. So I am looking forward to your reply.

    Thanks in advance.

  • I stopped working out for like 5 months because of health reasons and rn I can only do 25 pushups maybe 30 if I’m really pushing myself. How much should I do for the sets? I used to be able to do 60 pretty easily and i’m trying to get to a level that exceeds even that this time.

  • Which angle targets the chest more? Arms to the side or 45 degree angle or does that even matter? ��

    Educate me Sensei. Arigato! ����

  • Hey Daniel,
    I see many people flaring out their elbows, when they start doing pushups and it’s still a challenging exercise for them. Is it only because their tricep tends to be their weakest link and they try instinctively to use more of the pectoralis major? Or is there another reason for that in your opinion?

  • Listen op folks sounds nice and wonderfull but everyone has diffirent methods of training. But keep it up folks keep your body always in shape.

  • That man on the video: (tells some ways to do them better.
    Me: i understand.
    Really me: i have no idea what he is talking about.

  • When I was a kid I used to have so much trouble doing push-ups, eventually I got good at them with my elbows flared out, but then I injured both rotator cuffs, 1 in football and the other one in wrestling. After all that I had no other choice but to learn how to do them with my elbows tucked in and flexing/tightening up my core. Now out of all the advanced push-up variations you showed, have you ever tried or seen Hindu push-ups? Or better know as dive-bombers?

  • Even if I bench light, I feel a pain in the front of my left shoulder. I pushed too much last week and ended up with an aching shoulder for days. I’m literally afraid to touch bench again. Probably just going to sub these push-up variations for a while. With those tucked elbows, hopefully I won’t aggravate that shoulder.

  • How to: One arm push ups? I got a strong push-up from learning from people like you, but I’ve never been had a good one arm push up

  • Please check out my friends channel. He’s just starting but please help him out by watching his videos or subscribing.:)
    https://youtu.be/XZuv8ZFU2Y8

  • Proper form for push ups or did you mean bar path and flared elbows while you were benching? Both seemed a bit off to me? 45° elbows to protect your shoulders. You want impingement or torn labrum? Also the bar path is more \ rather than | you understand I hope? Keep working on your videos man, all things considered you did good. Just remember there’s a lot of fitness guru channels. Gotta keep them facts straight and keep it unique. Best of luck.

  • Starts out: “especially if you are a beginner”… by PU #3: the super ninja push up:) Well of course:) And only AFTER you mastered that you can think about moving on to weight training.

  • It could have been more proactive a title like “the 3 best techniques for push ups” it was too long to say “yes that’s what I want” it’s little bit too much maybe?

  • Uhm I have a doubt. When I do push ups, my dick touches the ground first, not the chest. Do I reverse-arch my back till the point when it’s my chest touching the ground or is this normal for guys?

  • Oh well. You got me doing push ups…. I got 50, then 30… then 10 for 2 more sets ;/ My push up game needs work. Now I’m gonna watch ;s
    When I do push ups its either on decline or with weight and I don’t aim for lots of reps, but… I guess I want the endurance.

  • This video has shown me that range of motion and tucking the elbows are essential for growth and strength while maintaining a tight core, while protacting the scalpla while pushing, thanks.����️‍♂️��

  • These are not full push-ups. You’re not locking your arms out at the top, not going all the way down, and your body is sagging in a couple places. 100 push-ups in a row becomes a lot harder if you’re doing to real thing.

  • for the 4th push up there is the variation, where you after the dog position and swing into the pushup and after the cobra position, then you just reverse from cobra back into pushup and then dog again. Like a swing dog to cobra and back and always the pushup in between once from the front and once from the back. This is used in Judo for strength training.

  • Hey man, I am 15 and I can do 50 push ups. I seem to have flatlined since I can’t increase and wanna do 100-150. Are weighted push ups a good idea when the body is no longer enough?

  • I’ll do 10 push-ups a like and I’m not everyone else I’ll actually comment every week and let y’all know how many push-ups I’m at!

  • Hi scott thank you for your awesome videos but i need your help now im a runner and started traininig for mass a 3 months ago iwas and still quite a super skinny guy 167cm and weighted 47 KG

  • Hello everyone!
    I hurt a muscle the other day wile doing curls, I was getting tired and probably dropped the weight too fast.
    So I wanted to grab that opportunity as a reminder that no matter how strong or weak, scrawny or buff, you are still human. You are dealing with heavy metal items that can cause severe damage, remember that not even sayans are invincible.
    And on that note please be safe and have a nice day.

  • Fuckin’ idiot. You’re the kinda guy that taught himself how to do everything at the gym without looking at the internet/PTs/instructors. You have absolutely no credibility here

  • Hey Scott my man, just wanted to let you know I have officially been on my fitness journey for one full year! You, along with Jeff Cavaliere and Jeff Nippard have helped me tons.. giving me all the right info at all the right times and motivation to keep on pushing and never be satisfied with where I’m at. Thanks bro! I can now deadlift twice my body weight, when I started I was only doing 100 pound deadlifts. My gal friend is always complementing my GAINS now, and life is so much better when you commit to this life.

  • Firstly want to thank you for your insights on push ups. 18 days back i could not do even 2 full push ups, but thanks to your video and then starting with negative push ups, today I am easily able to do 60 push ups(4 sets of 15) and 40 Negative Push ups in 30 mins every morning. Am all set to get to 100 proper push ups in the next 10-12 days. Really appreciate your video. Would be great if you can share some videos on building leg muscle post ACL surgery and stomach muscles too. Thanks once again.

  • I shall update!

    Okay. Haven’t started yet, but right now, my highest score on pushups is 9 in a row. I know. Pretty pathetic. (June 20, 2020) (my brother’s birthday!)

  • Can u do 3 Golden Rules for Crunchs I know this may sound stupid, But I was doing them and my abs felt like they were being worked, but then I watched a video saying I was doing them wrong so i bought myself a situp pad to cushion my tailbone and at the same time also give an arch to where you would think it would work abs more, but it doesnt seem like its working them as much as if I was laying flat on the floor doing a normal crunch……… Just really confused, I really like the leg lifts while laying, leg lift walking, and then the mountain climers more than crunchs tbh, but those are only for lower abs

  • Great tips man. I do have a question. I have been working out for 4 and a half years. And I am still having trouble to get 100% mind muscle connection. Do you have any tips to help me out. Thanks

  • Im 13 year old and i want to do does push ups but my moms said my hight is not gonna get any longer when i do so much thing like that!

  • try 10 pushups VERY slow, or keep steady/hold position at 1 point( e.g. for 5 or 10 seconds) then go a bit lower and hold position again and again until you hit the ground, you can als do this when moving upwards

  • Hey Scott I’ve been having a problem when I do push-ups with my palms flat on the ground. In my right arm I feel like a nerve is pinched somewhere and it tingles/hurts all the way through my pinkie finger. Should I avoid doing them and hope it gets better? I might be joining the military in the next couple years, so pushups are kind of important to be able to do!

  • I’m just curious, have you ever had any past injuries? I wonder with my shoulder that I’m trying to rehab and get strong if I will ever be able to perform these exercises. Bad ass video!

  • I have learned a lot about technique and style by the tappbrothers….quick question, how are you supposed to “train” for parkour if there’s no areas to train at?

  • Hey guys there was a push up I remember where you go down on your forearms and then push up from there, what is that called or am I thinking of something else?

  • Don’t do this fam, when y’all do your pushups do the full range of motion, and do them slowly. This man has a questionable form and is just jittering up and down really fast. Don’t worry about the number. If you do them the correct way, go to full shoulder lockout, touch the ground without disengaging, doing them at a controlled speed, you will see progress faster and actually get a good pump. I went from being able doing 30 of these half ass push-ups in a row to only doing 7 of pushups the RIGHT WAY, and now I’m rapidly approaching doing 30 the right way

  • I have to be able to do 24 push-ups in a min for my job and I’m at a struggling 3-5. I’m gonna do this to help increase my reps. Thank you Moses keep the videos coming

  • if he does so many body weight exercises why he is so unpleasantly skinny?
    Parkour is great for damaging joints. I met a few guys who who did that for years, now they remind me old guys with their damaged joints.
