    Pushups hit lats??

    I went to this big celebration yesterday, I always go to it, parade, dancing, etc. Anyway, there was this army stand set up where if you could do more push ups then someone your age and size, in 30 seconds, then you got a t shirt. I did the push ups, got my t-shirt. Whats funny is, I always thought push ups hit the chest? Well today i woke up and my lats are sore as a bitch. And my chest was fine. I thought pushups hit chest? not lats.

    I dont think I did anything else, wich is why I wanna know if it was the pushups that did it. Just to make sure im not crazy...

    as you know press ups hit *primarily* the pecs, anterior delts and triceps.
    yes, they do work other muscles too- including the lats.

    Thats what I thought to. My question now is, why are my lats sore, but nothing else?

    Because your lats stabilize your body (stabilization of horizontal movement) when you're in the pushup position.
