Triangle Push-Ups

The Move:
Triangle Push-Ups

Why: The triangle push-up gets its name from the position of your hands. Mastering this movement with a modified position of knees on the ground is recommended to keep proper form. The triangle push-up is an excellent total body and core exercise with emphasis on triceps.

How: Begin the move by positioning hands on the mat directly under chest with fingers spread and thumbs and forefingers touching, making a triangle shape. Straighten legs in a plank position (harder) or knees on ground (easier). Make sure the back is flat and abs are engaged as you bend the elbows, lowering until your chin or chest touches the mat. At the bottom of the movement your elbows will naturally flare out to the side. Press back up to starting position while keeping a rigid torso through entire movement.

Nail it: If you can’t go all the way down to a full push-up, go as far as you can and work your way up to a full push-up as strength grows. Exhale breath as you push back up to starting position.

Want a killer butt and core? Forget separate core workouts. Adding this ingredient to your current moves will amplify results and sculpt your middle in one efficient session.

Why the bosu ball? “By adding an unstable surface, a BOSU ball increases activation of the rectus abdominus and facilitates extra activity per exercise than a stable surface would,” says Meaghan.
