The hip is exactly the opposite. The femoral head is sunk deeply into the pelvis and surrounded by a barricade of ligaments so that nothing short of an act of (a particularly malicious) god could dislocate it.This is why we walk on our legs and manipulate stuff with our arms. Our legs can carry multiple times our body weight and manage the impact of many thousands of steps, daily, without flinching; those structures have sacrificed some mobility for the stability it takes to keep a biped truckin'. Our arms, on the other hand (ha!), can move lightning fast and have among the highest nerve density of any structure in the body. Shoulders are designed, above all else, to cover large distances with precision and speed. So, knowing this, push ups are kinda weird. I mean, you're essentially asking your arms to act like legs and, let's be honest, they are terribleat it. Go find the most jaw-dropping youtube video you can find of some packed Russian circus performer doing plank and handstand variations. Now, watch the video and imagine them doing everything they're doing with their hands, on their feet. Yeah, it would be a really boring video. It takes a super-high level of performance to make your arms do even a fraction of the awesome weight-bearing stuff that the average set of gams does every single day. My goal in doing push ups is, first, to allow my arms to act like arms and my legs to act like legs. The plank puts my spine perpendicular to gravity's acceleration, rather than parallel , which allows me to challenge my limbs at their respective jobs. To avoid getting sucked into the mindset of making my arms act like legs, at the very least, my push ups should aim to bring me all the way down to the floor, utilizing the full range of my shoulder's available extension.
