Greetings, I apologise if this is in the wrong section. I have attempted to use the search function but all I seem to find is questions of how many you can do. I am interested in joining the Army. I believe you have to do, among other things, 44 push-ups. I have seen this image (Below) on the Army website (Below) of someone doing a push up, I find it physically impossible for my elbows to bend backwards like that, and it is very awkward. Source: www.army.mod.uk/8551.aspx I read someone's feedback of their situation, somewhere on this forum, when they had to do 44 push-ups. That the officer made a slight adjustment to the manner in which he performed the push-up and it changed dramatically. I would like to be able to perform push-ups knowing I am doing them correctly, so I can improve correctly. Thank you very much.
