Close push-up to wide push-up

The close push-up to wide push-up combines two variations of a push-up to emphasize the strengthening of different muscles. The close push-up emphasizes the triceps, while the wide push-up emphasizes the chest and shoulders.


  1. More difficult than traditional push-ups
  2. Increases challenge to chest and triceps
  3. Can add pauses or manipulate tempo to increase difficulty
