Are your push-ups legit?

My biggest pet peeve is ugly push-ups. We are going to start taking away reps if your push-ups are done incorrectly. Your chest must make contact with the floor. If you aren’t maintaining a tight plank position you are missing the core componant, which in the long wrong will never get you ahead. We allow you to drop all the way to the floor because that way you are going through a full range of motion. If you cannot push yourself up in a solid plank, then drop to your knees. No belly flops!

    I wish I weren’t so sore; this looks like a killer WOD.
