Push-up Technique for Pec Activation

Hey coach,

In the pushup position you recommend trying to bring the hands inward to increase pectoral activation. How does one need to interpret this?

Do you concentrate on pushing both hands towards each other without turning them (like pushing on a horizontal line towards each other)? Or do you push by trying to turn your left hand counter clockwise and your right hand clockwise (trying to turn palms towards each other) or is it the other way around (trying to turn fingers towards each other)?

Thank you.
