Shouldn't multiple people answering cover the multiple alternatives?

comment Is it safe to do jogging on asphalt?
You'd need to state what you think good biomechanics are.

I'd edit your question to include that info if I were you.

Do you feel tremmors as well when doing modified pushups with your knees down?

comment Right knee hurts on squat
Newer research suggests doing static stretching pre-workout can promote injury, rather than prevent it. I'd stick to dynamic, unassisted stretching.

comment Push ups/head movements
Yep, so naturally it's worth investigating when you're experiencing unusual symptoms while performing any exercise.

comment Push ups/head movements
The top of a pushup can be isometric, and you can expect someone to have longer pauses towards the end of their sets.

If your distal tendon of the bicep is so short that you can't see where the muscle ends and the tendon begins, and you flex your elbow joint, the contracted bicep will get in the way of making a very small angle. If the tendon's longer, even though flexing the elbow joint contracts the bicep, the angle's a lot smaller before the forearm comes in contact with the bicep, thereby preventing further flexion.

Yes, the slower you go the less a heelstrike becomes a problem, although I would suspect it isn't necessarily speed and more the length of the stride. If your leg is far ahead of you for a heel strike the moment arm from the heel to knee and from the knee to hip is quite a bit longer than if you're heel striking with your foot just barely out in front of you.
