My question is why do you want to do push ups? With minimal free weights you could isolate and workout every muscle involved in a push up.

If you simply must do push ups, I saw an ad on TV over the holidays that featured basiclly, a handle on a swivel base allowing you to turn your wrist while doing the push up helping to eliminate strain. I think it was called PERFECT PUSH UP.

As a side note: I would advise seeking the services of massage therapist trained in sports techniques. Because of your occupation, the muscles in your fore arms get very tight. Stretching those muscles will give you less pain, greater range of motion, and may keep you from having carpal tunnel surgery someday. eek:
