    I recently did a qualification for security job. 63 in 60 secs. The guy said I was one of the few doing them right. Other people were trying to not even break their elbows. I was touching the ground on all of them.

    Being skinny kicks ass when it comes to military pushups.

    I usually come close to about 1cm off the ground from my chest.


    It strains muscles harder then hitting the ground with the chest.

    I never see anyone at the gym doing push ups do they help build muscle or just endurance?

    When bulking, I use them throughout the day for cell volumization (supplying energy to working muscles through the ATP process and an increase intramuscular hydration).

    I don't mean I actually put my whole chect on the ground, but I do go all the way down so that I can feel the ground on my nipples. It makes me randy.

    How so? Everyone told me to only lower til my chest is about a fist hight from the ground.

    I would think being thicker would be an advantage.

    you weigh less so you have less weight to move. i thought that was simple.

    typically weighing less would mean you have less muscle so the ratio of weight/muscle would probably negate that argument
