When doing the bare-hand form and pushing hands with an opponent, one must keep the power constant. This is one of the characteristics of Chen Style Taijiquan Practical Method. By keeping to this principle, one will gradually gain more internal abilities.
Movements or techniques without the power being constant is nothing short of external technique. No matter how strong, fast and accurate, this type of actions will never change quality to be internal.
