These kinds of threads frustrate me. The best cliche` I can think for this attitude is 'putting all your eggs in one basket'.
DO BOTH. Do a set of normal pushups, a set of hindu, a set of knuckle down, a set of eagles (very wide hand placement), a set of diamond, do em all, don't be like oh this one is the best so this is all I'm going to do! ............... don't be closed minded - BE DIVERSE.
