Trouble Zone: Backs of arms
Why it hits the spot: By keeping your elbows closer to your ribs than in the typical push-up, you increase the workout for your triceps.
Targets: Chest, triceps, abs, obliques, butt, and hips
- Start on ground in full push-up position, balancing on hands and feet with arms extended, body forming a straight line from head to heels. Make it easier: Do move on knees.
- Bring bent right knee out to side at hip level as you bend elbows 90 degrees, keeping arms tucked close to ribs, so that right knee and elbow touch.
- Press up and return to start.
- Do 8 reps. Switch sides and repeat. Do 2 sets.
