And, not one of these variations are called “Girl Pushups”
The issue is, people tend to confuse kneeling pushups with “girl pushups”, and that’s wrong on a lot of levels. One being, for me, that I know girls that can do more Standard Pushups than guys I know.
I personally know women that can do A LOT of pushups. Women in the military, firefighters, police officers, and just women who’ve worked hard to get a lot of reps of standard pushups in.
I have a hard time calling an exercise “girl pushups” when I’ve watched with my own eyes, girls going from 0 pushups to 10-20-25-30+ pushups.
Of course, this falls into the larger problem in fitness with people thinking, and promoting, gender specific exercises. And if there has been a top 2-3 things I’ve taught, and preached, while training, was that gender specific exercises is a complete myth.
We all should be doing pushups, even if they have to be modified to fit the individuals current abilities. And that goes for everything else in training.
