Press ups - advice?



  • So I've been doing press ups the old school way. Arms out and then push up and down, but I've been told to do them with elbows in and go up and down with them in. The only problem is when I do that I seem to just put too much pressure on my right arm. 
     
    Any ideas? Is it just something I need to get used to?
     
    Thanks.



  • Elbows in closer mean you are going to put a whole lot more emphasis on your triceps.
     
    It's just a different way of doing them that is all.
     
    You can do either or better still both.
