Default Favorite kind of pushup

Which is your favorite kind of pushup? I personally really like to do diamond pushups to really work my triceps. And knucklespushups are fun as well once you are strong enough.

Plain ol' wide grip push ups, using grip bars a few inches off the ground. Nice and slow, stertch and burn...then followed by a max speed timed set. Repeat until unable to function.

Knuckle pushups on concrete pavement, they kind of test your metal and determination and they're fun.
