Audio from the Wide Push Up Video
Okay. On to the wide push-up.
Now the wide push-up is exactly the same as a regular push-up, except the hands are going to be double shoulder width apart. And all this means is, we work on the outside of the shoulder muscles instead. So, a good exercise, and a good variation of the regular push-up.
Let’s do it.
So as I mentioned, it’s the same as a regular push-up, except the hands are going to be nice and wide. So you want to go as wide as you comfortably can here.
Again, we can have a straight line from the head back down to the heels. Core’s nice and tight. Buttocks clenched nice and tight.
From here, we’re going to pull ourselves down by pulling the elbows in and activating the lat. muscles.
We’re going to try and get the chest down or close enough to the floor, and push back up. That’s one.
Take a deep breath in to start. Hold, and then breathe out. Breathe in.
There we go.
That is the wide push-up, excellent for working the outside of the shoulders.
