    What I do for diamond push ups is spread my feet. It not only makes the push up easier it also gives me a little balance. Why don't you try that before progressing to a normal push up?

    I would ask a trainer that question when you're at the gym tomorrow, I am sure they'll be more than willing to help you with your form.

    The only way to get better at push ups, is to do more push ups. Whenever there is a commercial on TV, try doing a few. The more you do, the better you get at it.

    You can meet the standard, or you can set the standard. It's your choice.

    Try doing the bench press or chest press weight machine at the gym. My father was in your same shoes but now he is able to do a set of 10 chest presses at 20 pounds. It took about a month of consisten practice. He is 66 years old.

    As Cooch said definately practice the actual push up, but I say also workout the muscles themselves using weights/weight machines. Biceps and triceps are also good ones to work on.

    Start off by doing pushups standing up leaning against something such as a counter. Put your hands on the counter in pushup position, agling your body. Proceed to lower your upper body to your hands and contract your pectorals untill you are at the top of the motion and repeat.
    I do this when I get bored, lol. I do 100 pushups BEFOERE I work out, but I still get a little burn when I do this enough. If you do it enough and the right way, you'll feel it. Just make sure you lower your self down slowly and methodically.

     -It's 5 o'clcok somewhere.
     - So can you tell me what exactly does freedon mean, if I'm not free to be as twisted as I wanna be.
