[If you put your feet on a chair the push ups get even harder to do. The more declined it gets the more it's the shoulders working (and since delts are small muscles comparing to the pecs, well it gets harder.......) BUT good thing to do as warm up! [img]/forum/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

You know, I understand that this is true, and it makes sense to me anatomically, but I really find decline push-ups to be easier than regular "flat" ones! Why is that? I don't think it's because my delts are really strong because if there's a muscle group I've undertrained it's my shoulders due to all the neck problems I've had over the past few years.
