    Beginner here, am I doing squats, pushups, planks correctly?

    Hello, I am a beginner M28, 200lb, 6'2 lanky and I've made a quick video of some basic bodyweight exercises (squat, pushup, plank) I want to see if I am doing correctly, so it'd help to have someone actually review me before I keep going with it.

    It is in my profile bio, it is my homepage. I dont have enough posts to post it but I am not promoting my channel/spam, this is an unlisted vid on an acct with no other videos im just looking for feedback without going to find and pay a personal trainer im poor.

    I also saw a youtube vid that said beginners should be able to do the plank I did for 1:30 no prob, but I am wobbling throughout and can't do much more than what I did here, 50 secs, and on my elbows I can do about the same amount, but that way hurts my elbows more than fatigues. The dude that said it was already jacked though

    I tried posting this on reddit and even 4chan but both blocked me for no reason, hopefully better luck here, I suck but I'm trying.

    Thanks

    It says you really don't need to have a form check vid for planks. :P

    So is there a wrong way to do planks? Squats? Pushups? And am I doing them in that way?

    I can't even copy your "Real Name" which you made the link to view it, although from above it sounds like it doesn't work anyway.

    Regardless, there's not much point doing form checks on bodyweight exercises. Put some weight on a bar, then make a video of your squat.

    Do pushups & planks however you want IMO, that'll sort itself out over time or you can just watch some YT vids on them.
