Instructions for Wide Grip Push-Ups

  • In a traditional push-up, your hands are a shoulder width apart. With a wide grip push-up, you should place your hands farther apart.
  • Be careful not to extend your arms too wide as you can put too much pressure on your shoulders.
  • Get into a prone push-up position with your body straight and your hands on the ground more than a shoulder width apart.
  • Lower yourself until your chest almost hits the ground.
  • Push yourself back up to your starting position.
  • Repeat.
