Quote: "A goal is not always meant to be reached, it often serves simply as something to aim at." - Bruce Lee
The Wide Grip Push Up is an exercise that you did as a kid growing doing P.E classes in primary school. The Wide Grip Push is a great bodyweight exercise for building strength in the chest, shoulder and triceps area.
You can also make the exercise easier or more challenging by changing hand positions and going from feet to knees.
You don’t need any equipment and you can do this exercise in the comfort of your own home. Changing the width of the hands can place an emphasis on a different part of the body. The wider the hands are, the greater the emphasis on the chest, the narrower the hand, the greater the emphasis on the triceps and shoulders.
If you are stuck for time and cannot get to a gym, then doing Wide Grip Push Ups is a great exercise to do.
