Wide Grip Push Ups

  • Get into pushup position on the toes or knees if you are a beginner, with your hands two hand widths outside of shoulder width.
  • Perform a pushup by allowing the elbows to flex.
  • As you descend, keep your body straight from your head to our toes, or knees.

  • Follow the same line up and repeat for recommended repetitions.

Dumbbell Bench Press

  • Lie down on a flat bench with a dumbbell in each hand at your chest, and feet flat on the floor.
  • The dumbbells should be just to the sides of your chest, with your upper arm and forearm just past a 90 degree angle.
  • Be sure to maintain full control of the dumbbells at all times and have a spotter if possible.
  • Then use your chest to push the dumbbells up in a controlled motion.
  • The dumbbells should be furthest away from each other at the bottom of the movement, and slowly get closer as you move them up.
  • Lock your arms at the top of the lift and squeeze your chest, and then follow the same line coming down in a controlled fashion.
  • Repeat the movement for the recommended amount of repetitions.

  • Bend forward slightly at the waist, and let your working arm hang straight down for the starting position, with your opposite arm on your knee.
