Are you doing wide pushups?
Did you know that hand placement makes all the difference in how you affect muscle?
So, you know how to do pushups…
But I believe you should consider wide pushups in your next home workout routine.
- Extend your arms below your shoulders with your palms flat on the ground.
- Place your hands wider than shoulder-width apart on the ground.
- Point your toes into the ground.
- Bend at the elbows until the upper arms are parallel to the floor.
- Then press through the palms and extend your arms back to start position.
- Keep your eyes on your fingertips.
- Breathe in as you go down, breathe out as you go.
