You should probably do the knee-style pushups.  Form is very important so you don’t hurt yourself.  I guess you could always switch over from the knee-style pushups to the regular pushups later on if you find yourself getting stronger.  When I started the 100-pushup challenge I could do 10-ish regular pushups.  Now I’m on week 3 (for my third time), and I can do 25+ without any problems.  I’m not progressing nearly as fast as the program seems to think I should be though…

Oh this is an awesome program. You have just inspired me me to do the knee push up version, may I join you and see how progress goes for us at the same time?

Maybe do it with knee pushups then if you feel so inclined, start back over with regular!

I started doing this but it bugged my elbow so I only got up to 30. Good luck!

I did the knee-style ones (good form) until I had built up my back and chest muscles and could do 3-5 not knee ones.  Then I just started again from the beginning.  It took me about 2/3 weeks before I was comfortable with my not-knee ones being good form enough to not injure myself.
