Keeping track of my training regimen and keeping me honest
I wouldn't so much call the pushups a close hand position, just closer than what you are used too, it's similar to what I had to do in college and all I really do now.
That's why I said "close-ish"! I know the really close hand position is much tougher on the triceps.
I guess I more meant they are considered regular width, for me your hand placement is too wide, but to each there own.
