Wide PushupLevel: Intermediate

Personal Trainer Rich Thurman demonstrates an Intermediate Level Wide Pushup exercise.

Instructions: Start with the hands wider than shoulder width with hips raised.

-Engage the core and keep a completely flat position of the back.

-Descend towards the ground under control and push back upward to the starting position.

Note: It is very important that you engage your abdominals and keep the hips from sagging. A beginner may need to start from the knees.  Be sure to keep the hips flattened during.

Benefits: The Wide Pushup is a great variation on the strict pushup. It targets the chest differently and provides you with a different range of pushing strength. At the bottom range you’ll feel more of a stretch across the chest. The main target muscles include chest, shoulders, triceps as well as engagement of the abs and muscles around the hips to stabilize the torso.
