Diamond Push-Up

The diamond push-up is a variation of the classic exercise that targets the triceps (back of the arm, approximately 70% of the muscle mass in the lower arm). Start in standard push-up position then bring your hands closer so you form a "diamond" shape with your fingers. Go down in a controlled manner then go up. That's one rep. Do 3 or 4 sets of 5-6 reps.

  • Works the triceps (an often forgotten muscle group), chest, shoulders and core.
  • Can be done anywhere.
  • None.
1/Form a diamond with your fingers
