I found this tweak for pushups a couple of days ago and tried it out. It works well. Tip: A New Strategy for Push-Ups | T Nation

Make the resistance travel straight up and down by shifting your bodyweight.
  1. Begin on your tip-toes, with your shoulders slightly in front of your wrists.
  2. As you go down, shift your weight to the balls of your feet, then vice-versa as you press back up again.
Doing this will offset the arc of the weight, keeping the resistance much more vertical over the range of motion.
It makes the end position taller and seems to force you to "plank" better.

What do others think?
