Anyone else have problems keeping your back straight while doing these?

I can now bang out about 20 but I find it hard to keep my back straight.

the reason you guys have trouble keeping your back straight is because of poor core body strength. try to do more exercises that strengthen your lower back and abs. eg core rotations, romanian dead lift, farmers walks (also does legs and stamina). situps and chest raises etc. that way it is easier to keep your back straight. also try superman pushups and see how far out you can get your arms within 3 weeks. that really does your core strength. eventually you might end up like my mate, his core strength is good he can do pushups, body straight and lifts his legs off floor aswell the only thing in contact with groung are his hands in pres up position and the rest of his body comes off the floor. but hes a pro breakdancer *text deleted*

Your back looks pretty straight,
but your knees look slightly bent,
could just be 'cause you're in loose joggers though.

Thats why weightlifting can be useful...I've never had a problem keeping my back straight.
