How to Do a Triceps Push-Up
A. Start in a high plank position with palms just narrower than shoulder-width apart. Engage quads and core as if holding a plank.
B. Inhale and bend elbows straight back to lower entire body simultaneously toward the floor, triceps tight next to ribs. Pause when chest is just below elbow height.
C. Exhale and press into palms to push body away from the floor to return to starting position, moving hips and shoulders at the same time.
Do 8 to 15 reps. Try 3 sets.
Triceps Push-Up Form Tips
- Don’t allow hips or low back to sag toward the floor, or any hinging to happen at the hips or lower back.
- Keep neck neutral and gaze slightly forward on the ground; don’t tuck chin or lift head.
- Keep elbows tucked tight in to sides.
- Don’t allow upper back to “cave in” or chest to push forward. When in high plank, isometrically push chest away from the floor and then push up from that position.
