Eye test

Which picture is better? If this is meant to be the starting position of Control Pushup, and you want to start at ease in order to be eccentric, how can you adjust the equipment to get the poisition you prefer?

Maybe this is obvious, but I like the position on the right. The arms are more directly under the body. On the left the angle of arms to body is not good for the shoulder. The position at the right was attained by moving the carriage out a gear so that the arms are directly under the body while the carriage is not yet in spring tension. (I suppose you could also lower the foot bar if you have that option.) Adjust the equipment to fit the body, don't force the body into the tension of the equipment.
