#4 Diamond Push Ups
The Diamond Push Up gets its name from the position of your index fingers and thumbs during the exercise, which forms a diamond shape. Unlike regular push-ups, the Diamond Push Up is more efficient in working up your triceps and inner chest.
Step 1: Get on all fours with your hands together under your chest. Place your index fingers and thumbs in such a way so that they form a diamond shape when they come together.
Step 2: Extend your arms so that your body is elevated and forms a straight line from your head to your feet. Lower your chest towards your hands while making sure your elbows don’t fan out.
Step 3: Stop just before your chest touches the floor, and revert to your original stance.
Important Tip: Start off with 2 sets of 2-10 reps.
