That sounds like tough little training session,

I'm not sure if I was watching your superman pushups or your power pushups in that vid. Sorry if I took that out of context and disregard the next statement if they were your superman pushups.

In regards to the power push up. You really want to try to take the hips out of it and keep a rigid spine throughout the movement. If your hips are bending then it becomes less of a pushup and more of a jump. Most people break at the hips a bit for superman pushups but power pushups are normally done in a rigid plank. You keep a straight line from your head right down to your heels and your toes stay planted for the whole movement and you just try to "jump" with your hands/ upper body.

Tazan,

Super thanks for your comment. I think my pushup was in between the superman pushup and power pushup. I believe superman pushup I have to push out my arms straight in the front with a superman flying position which I am not strong enough to have enough airborne time yet. And I think the power pushup doesn't require legs to be airborne. So my pushup was more closer to the superman one but still training my upper body to be strong enough for the airborne time. But your comment is definitely relevant since I am not happy with my form on the pushup. By judging my legs was higher than my shoulder that tells me my body was in a "wave" not with rigid spine like you pointed out. I believe if my upper body is strong enough I should be able to airborne my whole body without breaking too much of my hip. I will take your advice and try to focus more on making my back more straight and rigid. Appreciate that!!!!
