Qualify, "better".

Daniel, I apologize for stating the obvious, but have you tried looking at videos of pushups? Then make sure you do yours in front of a mirror to see how yours measure up?

Also, if you could be more specific, it will help. What do you mean by "better push ups?" Do you mean push ups that focus on X vs Y vs Q? What is your goal with said push ups?

Knuckle push ups.

I've been trying to improve my push up  form and I'm still having trouble getting it down. Anyone have any tips for a better push-up?

Eh. I'm a big fan of go big. It's impossible to even starve yourself too fast. Atkins induction will burn fat. But it isn't without it's problems.

Rusty, if you have time, I'd check out a documentary called "Perfect Human Diet"

I would say the "program" they talk about is somewhat similar in nature to Atkins (low carb), but it's much closer to Paleo, without the expensive name "Paleo Diet". Basically, remove foods that you have to process in order to eat (ie grains... generally, you have to grind them up and turn them into flour in order to make bread).

I am slowly working my family into this sort of diet, and one of the positives I'm seeing is that grocery shopping takes quite a lot less time physically in the store.

Atkins INduction? The diet that caused that doctor to die?

Actually, I eat a really wide range of foods each day -and am very conscious about intake. I don't limit myself, but I do attempt to ensure that I eat lots of fruits and veggies, from all colors. Kind of that rainbow thing to ensure I get all the phytonutrients and all that garbage.

EG:  if I eat meatless one day, I eat a bunch of meat the next. If I eat mainly green veggies one day, then I'll make sure I eat other colored vegetation the next.

You could probably get away with half a gram per pound. There actually isn't any benefit over .82g/lb, and for most people it's ~.63g/lb. Upper limit for your body to assimilate is 1g/lb per day. The rest will get burned as fuel. But I hate doing long division for no good reason.

Speaking of. Have you tried Atkins Induction?
Comment by Rusty Rogers yesterday
Nah, not in competition. Just wasn't sure how much to fascilitate muscle growth.
