Keep your hand flat on the floor throughout the exercise and push up through the palm of your hand Press up as high as you can while keeping your hand flat and over time your strength will increase to the point that you will be able to get a full extension when coming back down you will want to stop just before your shoulder rests back down on the floor. This will keep constant tension on your triceps throughout the movement.
