    Afternoon,

    How wide must one's hands be for the press up element of the fitness test?

    I am light blue with hands just over shoulder width apart and pushing dark blue with them wider - of course there is less distance to push and it is considerably easier - my chest is a lot stronger than my triceps naturally.

    Obviously not ludicriously wide but the more flared the easier.

    Thanks - now I see this as pretty wide and always assumed they would be looking for your elbows to be closer to body.

    Can vary on the PTI.

    Standard rule: train hard, fight easy. Start with your hands directly under your shoulders.
