So I have really long, gangly arms and end up looking a bit like a chicken when I go down to the floor (only way I can describe it!) is this still good? Also it is virtually impossible but this might be due to strength not form Different people tell me different things: tennis ball vs. angle.
Then I might get in on the table!
At the end of the day let your conscience be your guide. If you look at vegan hal's video he goes very deep and I would say they are optimal.
In most exercises you want to get as full a range of motion as possible without causing injury.
Reposted vegan hal's video because you cant have enough videos of vegans doing pushups wearing sleeveless tshirts.
