Pushups (Close and Wide Hand Positions) - Exercise Guide

Step 1

Do a pushup position on the floor. Support your weight with your toes and hands. Your hands should be wider than shoulder width for wide hand pushup and closer than shoulder width for close hand position. Your arms should be extended. Keep your body straight and prevent your hips from going down all throughout this exercise. This is your starting position.

Step 2

Lower your body by bending your elbows to your sides. Continue until your chest almost touches the floor. Inhale as you do this movement.

Step 3

Push your body back up by extending your elbows until you’re back to your starting position. Squeeze your chest muscles and exhale as you do this.

Step 4

Hold the contraction on your chest for a second before proceeding with your next repetition.

Step 5

Repeat until the recommended amount of repetitions is achieved.
