Do you touch your chest to the floor when you do pushups? If not you're only doing partials, which are a lot easier.

Unfortunately I can only go down until my stomach touches :-)

I wonder if this could be a shoulder imbalance rather than chest/back? I really have been careful to balance chest & back, but for a long time the only shoulder work I did was military press, which mostly hits the front delts. Maybe my front delts are way stronger than my rears and that impacts these exercises?

Not if ou use thick books, or boxes or something to elevate your hands above the floor, then you can go REALLY DEEP.

Pushup bars are good also, if you can find a pair.
