Please answer! what muscles do wide grip push ups work and are they good for boxing?

Don't forget legs : It's true, any good upper body workout will be helpful, but don't forget your legs.

After I recover I want to do is:
1. Karate
2. Knuckle Push Ups
3. Hand Grip Exercises

It varies.: You can start "hand grip exercises" as soon as ordinary activities are comfortable.

You must get clearance from your ortho doc or physical therapist before resuming these activities ...Read more

How can I do a handstand push up?

A lot of practice: And some strong shoulders. Realize a handstand pushup is really an inverted military press.
