1. Half cobra push-up
Lay down on your stomach and place your hands right next to your chest. Slightly raise yourself up until there is a 45-60 degree angle in your elbow. Slowly lower yourself back down to the beginning position. Keep your elbows close into your rib cage, as they should graze as your raise and lower yourself. Repeat this move for one minute, rest and repeat 2 more times.
2. Tricep Push-Up
Stay in the same position as before. Place your hands next to your chest and raise yourself into a plank position. Beginners, start on your knees or take yourself onto your feet for a challenge. As your lower yourself into a push up, keep your elbows close in to your ribcage. This will work your tricep area, whereas a regular push up focuses on your shoulders and back muscles. Keep your hands aligned right under your shoulders for maximum results. Begin with 3 sets of 10.
