  • If any guy is having man boobs or chest fat and if he does pushups, will his chest fat burn or will the chest pump up? He actually wants a flat chest!! Please help me with this.

  • this is so so good!! thank you Jillian!! Been struggling with “proper” push ups forever. Can you show us how to do it on an elevated platform with proper form? or do we use the same technique as what you have shown? <3

  • O. M. G. I didnt realize that by focusing on keeping your whole body tight push ups instantly became easier. Ive been doing really bad floppy arched back push ups for so long that i just did my first 8 actually super awesome push ups!! Thank you so much!!!

  • Wow this was incredibly helpful. I’ve just started doing pushups on an incline (arms are weak AF!) and I’ll defo be integrating your advice!!

  • AAAHHHHH, this video is SO SO SO GREAT!!! You provide so much information in an easy to understand manner. Thank you so much, this is so wonderful <3

  • Fantastic tips and explanation. I’ve been working out for years and this has always been my weakest. Like the regression techniques. Thank you! ��

  • Many thanks for your excellent education and training. My only word, please do show the final exercise slowly and with camera rotation and possibly both incorrect n correct form..maybe repeating it few times..will be great boost to your videos.

  • i want to hardern my abs n have loik at apps that tell u all that u need to know but im abit jubious as 2 wether its benefical n apps u can recommend becoz uk in lockdown n u cant go to the gym any advice wud b great n what sort of stuff u sell whats the website please

  • your all videos are very helpful and informative…
    I am underweight and very skinny… I want to build muscle…… please please make a video… ����

  • I wouldn’t call it “girl pushups” thats just calling women and girls weak when we aren’t. Males and females both have their biological strenghts and weaknesses and very unique bodies…

  • I’m left handed and whenever I do inclined pushup (I can’t do full at all) my left forearm and wrist ache.I try to go with right form but maybe I lose it due to unbalanced muscles strength in left and right.��

  • She never actually once says that knee or modified push ups are girl push ups she just said that shes tired of people saying you run like a girl or do push ups like a girl when someone does it incorrectly

  • You gotta tighten the glutes and plug those energy leaks people, come on! Your kinetic chain is floppier than my left shoe lace! More energy!!

  • Such a great video. Awesome information that is really helping me learn how my body works and where I’m making mistakes. I really wish we had P.E. teachers/coaches that could inform us like this at a younger age.

  • Thank you very much for showing us how this is done. I have been doing push-up’s this way for while now and even though it was more difficult at first, I have notice its more effective and puts a lot less unwanted stress on my joints and body. I enjoy watching this video every so often to ensure I don’t forget any of the things on your checklist. Have a great day and stay safe:)

  • Not very good at push ups but just trying these tips has made it easier and I can feel it working the areas it should be! Your the man bro! Also have you done a tip video explaining why you might have one muscle of the same type bigger than the other, like right bicep being bigger than the left for example? ����

  • Managed 20 proper clean ones to start with. Then collapse after my arms gave in around 14 Grinder style. Am I doing something wrong or shall I just switch to rest/pause?

  • This channel reinforces one conclusion I reached years ago…. gym is bad for most of us.
    Unless you are blessed with perfect genes, you will injure yourself. Sooner rather than later.
    So go learn how to swim or walk and do some yoga… or just make sure you have a personal gifted trainer like this guy watching you. Cause most run of the mill instructors I saw? Came no where near to his level of noticing these so tiny, yet important mistakes

  • I modify as an old dude to do this on my fists with elbows tight to sides as my wrists no longer have enough flex. Thanks for showing what I need to watch in my form.

  • I love your content Jeff. Form is my enemy since I have no idea what I’m doing and I don’t want to cause anymore injuries to myself therefore I just don’t work out which is not what I want at all. I’m a truck driver so any and all videos on form and body workout recommendations will be gladly welcomed ����

  • oh wow oh wow. i just tried doing it this way and i was actually able to do 5 pushups in a row from 0. i did 2×5. i keep wanting to do more cause i’m just so shocked that i can do pushups. i actually had to google the muscle i was seeling it in cause apparently i’ve never worked my upper chest before in my life XD

  • Omg, I’ve been working out in group classes for years and NO instructor has ever explained doing the perfect push up as well as you have! And I’m soooo HAPPY to hear that I don’t have to go down to the ground with a push up, as it really hurts my shoulder but all the instructors tell you to go low as possible! Thank you, Jillian for that excellent video!!!

  • Hey, I was wondering if the same about the glutes apply for the plank too because I saw a video of yours where you said the glutes aren’t doing anything there. Is there something I’m somehow missing here?

  • I need something which helped me to regain into shape quickly and Zippy Fat Loss did just that! Check it out on Google, it�s an outstanding product

  • Thank you. I am coming back to exercise after a long break and can’t push up much. That bit about holding a plank at the low position was the tip I needed. Pushing from the low is exactly my problem.
    I miss the salsa jig you used to do at the end of your routines. Sorry I had to mention because that was why I started following you on Instagram years ago. There are many fitness instructors out there but you stood out because of that cheerful dance at the end of your posts. Just thought I would mention

  • Thank you so much as a Mum of 5 kids I must say I’m always so busy being a mum and wife and in and out of red cross as one of my twin girls that is 4yrs old was diagnosed with autism when she a 1 years old. I felt very worn out frustrated with how I let myself go and thought I’ll never fell as I could be empowered or fell good about myself then I found my guardian angel named Jillian Michaels although financial I couldn’t get equipment for dumbbells and bands the 30 day body shred didn’t need all that, I filled 500 ml and 2lt bottles with sand. 2 years down the line I went from a size 20 to wearing a 10/8 and that is SOUTH AFRICAN sizing not sure how it work in USA. THANK YOU

  • Would those be considered tricep dips? Cause in school, all I’ve known to do is the pushup where your arms are 90 degrees and the elbows dont go towards the back but all the way to the side,if you know what I mean.

  • Jillian, I cant get on the floor because of my severe arthritis in my knees, is it good to do push ups against a wall. Also what are good exercises to get rid of saddlebags on the hips thanks

  • QUESTION FOR JEFF/ATHLEANX: I love the way you break this down, but I’m confused on the rocking forward portion. It looks like on the example you give for keeping elbows back that you are not rocking forward, but then when you talk about bar/body path you are. Is it okay to go straight down without the diagonal line or is that going to hurt and use too much of my shoulders? Thanks!

  • Didn’t have an issue with the term girl push-ups. understood completely what she meant. These days people are to caught up with “political correctness” that everyone is being over sensitive. So girl-pushups, modified, you know what she means and stop being so easily offended. Geez…

  • OMG i actually cant believe i just did my first pushup after trying it at 3:47… I’ve been training for the past 3 months to prep for going into the military and I couldn’t get out of doing modified push ups… wow, to think I was never engaging my whole body. THANK YOU SO MUCH

  • I liked this video, no doubt. But I do hate the title so very much, though.

    By using the word “girl” as a derogatory term, you diminish the value of women. Stop thinking of “girl” and “girly” as being “less than”!

    We women ourselves look down upon being a girl. Why would you expect the boys and the men to show you respect then?

  • A Push up is something I have always found so difficult to do. I would love to be able to do a few of these for my arms but the last time I tried I managed about 4 and then had a bad elbow for the next week……….

  • Hi Massy, your work is inspiring! Everytime I watch your videos, I feel very motivated to make the exercises. They help me set and strive to achieve new goals! Could you make a tutorial on pull ups?

  • Hi, Cory! Greetings from Colombia. I really admire your strength! You’re so inspiring ��. I’d love to see a video where we can exercise simultaneously with you! ������

  • Thanks for this clear and straightforward explanations! My challenge is to do 10 push ups. This definitely motivates me and got me already through my very first 5 non-modified push-ups in a row in my entire life ever:D
