Hi all. What do you think is more productive. Regular military pushups or the atlas 1. If it is the atlas 1 because of the greater range of motion how high should the chair you use be off the ground? Would it be better to just be high enough off the ground to get a good stretch. This could be done with something not as high as two chairs. For example last night I used two bricks. I was only elevated a little more than regular military pushups but got a decent stretch. Just looking for some input from you guys. Great forum.

I find the extra range of motion from Atlas pushups engages my pecs more, while standard military/Liederman pushups seem to engage my front delts more. But I'm sure others have a different experience here.

The Atlas I is where the feet are on the floor and the hands are on the chairs. Atlas II is where hands and feet are on chairs.

If you're able to do Atlas IIs, then forget the military pushups.
