This exercise works both the chest and triceps, but due to the close stance of your hands, it will challenge the triceps more than a regular push-up.
- This exercise can be performed from a straight leg push-up position, which is extremely challenging, or from knees on the floor.
- Hands are positioned very narrow, with hands directly under the shoulders and elbows close to the ribcage.
- As you lower, keep elbows close to the ribcage, paying close attention to keeping the abdominal muscles tight and the back straight.
- Exhale as you push back to start position and repeat.
Tip: If you begin from a bent knee position, make sure that your back is very straight and your buttocks does not stick up in the air, or your low back may feel uncomfortable.
