-
Because its a more comfortable position, we often start out in the position. 
-
Fact of the matter is, is that picture number 1 is the correct for for press ups, the arrow shape.
-
Where the elbows push back diagonally & we get correct muscular activation with the Pectoral muscle & the Triceps, whereas with the Chicken Wings, we work the shoulder girdle.
-
^^^ Problem with this is that Performing the movement incorrectly can lead to injury that may inhibit your results & performance.
-
So Follow These Tips In Order To Finally Perform Press Ups Correctly & Get The Correct Muscle Activation:

 


-
1 - Elbows push diagonally to enable the pecs to activate
-
2 - Keep abs & glutes tight at all times, imagine your pulling your abs in!
