wide grip push ups

WIDE-GRIP PUSH UPS


VIDEO DEMO:


EXERCISE INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. SETUP: On a regular push up, your hands should be positioned slightly outside shoulder-width, at chest level. On this variation we want to take that position and then widen by about 30cm on each side.
  2. REP: Drive yourself up by forcing your hands down into the floor. Keep your abs tight; it should look like you’re doing a plank while moving up and down. Your chest isn’t going to receive as much help from the shoulders & triceps as it normally would (because of grip placement), so don’t be surprised if you find these tricky.
  3. TIP: These can be performed on knees if full push ups are too difficult for you right now.
