Here’s a great comparison of 2 push up variations which in my opinion show a safe vs unsafe push up position.
The left image shows a wide hand position which I find fairly common when looking around the gym, You can see where there is increased pressure on your shoulder joints and is in my opinion a inferior movement and should be avoided unless under supervision of a qualified coach or instructor.
When compared to the right image you can instantly see the difference in positions my hands, wrists, elbows and shoulders all line up allowing for maxim strength, stability & Scapular control when performing the movement. You will also find a larger increase in activation within the desired muscle groups increasing muscle hypertrophy and a reduction in injury risk.
The push up is the perfect addition to any workout routine no matter the level.
