Wide Arm Pushups

How to do Wide Arm Pushups:

• Begin in standard pushup position.

• Move hands so that they are further than shoulder width apart.

• Lower yourself to the ground while keeping body straight.

• Push yourself up while keeping body straight back to starting position. That is 1 rep.

• Exhale when going down, inhale when going up.

This is a great chest exercise for those of you who don't have a gym. Its essentially a bench press except that you're lifting yourself. Some might argue that its not as efficient as a bench press for building the chest but its great for working that chest for endurance.

Equipment I use for this exercise: Nike Yoga Mat
