Wide-grip hands-elevated push-up

The wide-grip hands-elevated push-up is a variation on the elevated push-up performed with the hands farther apart than with a standard push-up. Having the hands higher than the feet makes it easier than wide-grip push-ups on the floor, but the extra width also puts more emphasis on the chest muscles. It can be used as a substitute for wide-grip floor push-ups, or as a mechanical dropset after maxing out on floor push-ups.


  1. Stretches and emphasizes the chest muscles
  2. Effective substitution for wide-grip push-ups in any workout
  3. Great for burnout sets at the end of a chest or triceps workout
