Now some will say it is called a "girl" pushup because women naturally don't have a upper body as strong as men but like I said before I have seen PLENTY of women who can do normal pushups with ease. It took me almost 30 years to build the strength I need to do a normal pushup and I weighed 380 pounds when I did it! It never really bothered me that people would call my modified pushups "girl" pushups, it just bothered me that the easier modified version of a pushup was labeled a "girl" pushup. I have seen ALOT of amazing women athletes who can blow away a lot of men!
I feel like if I keep writing I am going to start rambling. My point is lets drop the "girl" from the pushup. It's a modified pushup.... bottom line. Man or Woman can each benefit from them as they are a great stepping stone to doing normal pushups.
That's my 2 cents!
