Hi! I'm a young girl and I'm TRYING to work out as much as I can. I'm in a TAEKWONDO club where we do a lot of strength workouts like sit-ups, lunges, squats, push ups, etc. But I'm REALLY struggling with the push-ups ...I do as well have a lot of belly fat which kinda ruins how I do push-ups.

Now I do push-ups on my knees, and find that ? quite easy, but I struggle a lot doing real push-ups. I know it cause of my weight and size as well, and I don't have much muscle, so I have a question:

How can I learn real push ups as quick as possible ? And how do I do it properly ?
I've tried knee push ups, knee/real push-ups, wall push ups etc.

Thanks :))

OK you're doing well so far. Keep doing push ups on your knees. Than after a while begin slowly to lift up your knees. It might not be easy, but keep trying eventually your whole body will be in sync with your hands and knees. Good luck and may god bless you.

Knee push ups are a good beginning.  But you can also try plank to build a little bit your core and shoulders.
A good workout to work differently is the dips. It will give strenght in your arms. After that you can also lay down on the floor and push. Back to the floor and rest and push etc...
