Today was Arms/Shoulders/Back day for me so this week's featured exercise is the MODIFIED TRICEP PUSH UP.
Instead of being done on the toes like a traditional pushup, this pushup is done on the knees to put more emphasis on the triceps (back of the arms) and less emphasis on the core (abs, back extensors). Also, the hands are placed directly under the shoulders and close to the armpits instead of in-front and to the side, and the elbows are kept level with the back. This engages more of the triceps and less of the pectorals (chest muscles).
This exercise primarily tones the triceps, but your abs, pecs, shoulders, and upper back muscles get a workout too!
