I couldnt agree with the bolded statement more. I see many incorrect benches done in the gym.
I think we need to put your theory to the test. There are members of this thread who are into toning up aside from bulking. How about you post a push up program that you know to be affective and we'll try it our for a month to see how effective it is? What do ya think? It should be a win/win situation, you can post the outcome of the test on your website.
