The perfect push-up necessitates the following elements. 1: Thumbs align to intersect the nipples. 2: Ear, shoulder,hip and ankle align in a straight line. 3: The nose, chest and hip strike the deck at the same time. 4: Press away from the deck and repeat. Anything less is a foul. A stick provides a solid measurement of execution. Cobras, flying elbows, wiggli-worm, knee buckle, arching back hidden coach, Greazy's early knee finish, and the chicken neck head bob - don't count. Avoid these! None will help you get on the board faster and earn proper peer respect . Gruelling out proper knee push-ups will propell you the fastest toward executing 200 pushups in one workout. That is a guarantee!!
