An instructor said something in class today that really confused me. She said that military-style push-ups don't work the core muscles as well as push-ups on the knees. She said we can better engage the ab muscles when our bodies are not fully extended. Is that true? I always thought you drop down to your knees only if you can't do military push-ups. Now, I'm hearing that the alternative push-ups give you a better workout??? I feel the push-ups more when I stick with the military push-ups but I'm questioning myself now. Am I doing the military ones because it boosts my ego or am I really getting a better workout? What's the truth about push-ups? How do you get the best workout?
