IK problem

Can anyone helping me? I trying to make a pusup animation, but the problem is I don’t want the elbow to close to the body, like this picture:

want to make the elbow point outward as much as possible like this

I try to stick the arm to the ground and make IK bones for the chest, shoulder, arm and forearm. The forearm is IK tagret to the IK hand and with 3 bone effected. I tried to make pole target but not good. Can some one explain how make elbow as far as body as possible?
