Wide Push-ups

The wide push-up is an interesting variant of the classic exercise. It heavily involves the chest while still working the core, triceps and shoulders. Start in a standard push-up position with a wide stance (hands should be placed outside of the shoulder area). Go down in controlled manner then go back up. Do 3-4 sets of 8-12 reps.

Pros:
  • Great upper-body workout.
  • Underrated core exercise. 
  • Can be done anywhere.

Cons:
  • None.
