    Sorry about the annoying Youtube pre- ads!!
    Hand release does at least guarantee/prove that your chest is on the floor!

    Just thought I'd say, if you install the "uBlock Origin" browser extension it stops all the youtube ads, so you don't have to see them.

    2-3 minutes - I haven't stuck to a definite time - but I should.

    29 reps, 3 mins rest, 25 reps. to failure.

    Not sure I'd great form though towards the end. To ensure my chest was properly on the ground, as I tired my abs also touched the lino at times!

    There's no significant isometric element to this style, so it'll probably not help with the Bring Sally Up Challenge. But, as 'variety's the very spice of life, that gives it all its flavour (William Cowper)', I'll give it a go for a couple of weeks and set a target of trying to achieve at least both reps hitting the 30 plus range.

    24 and 20, with 5 minutes rest. I was planning on going for 3 minutes rest, but it felt too short. I suspect that when I was not timing the rest it was longer than I thought.

    Chest to floor press-ups can of course include an eccentric element if the descent is slow enough - 3 seconds or more; eccentrics are supposedly better for strength than isometrics.
