Wide Pushup

wide push up

Move Targets: Arms


Step 1: Begin on all fours in a pushup position but place your hands on the floor so they are about twice the distance of shoulder-width apart.

Step 2: Lower your body until your chest nearly touches the floor. Pause at the bottom, and then push yourself back up to the starting position. Keep your back flat, contracting your abdominal muscles while you hold your body in a straight line from head to toe. Don’t let your butt sag or stick up in the air.

 Step 3: Do as many wide pushups as you can for 60 seconds.

Modification (Beginner): Drop knees to the floor.
