Side Push-Ups: Great for Arms & Brides

Side Push-Ups: Great for Arms & Brides

I am always looking for quick ways to work my arms. This exercise is great for those commercial break moments, but is also great to do at the gym. It is a great exercise since it works your biceps, triceps and deltoids. By keeping your core engaged it will also work your waist. Nice bonus, huh?


Do 10 repetitions on each side
Starting Position

  • Keep waist up and lifted
  • Keep energy shooting out of the crown of your head
Push-Up

  • Exhale and press hand firmly into floor and press elbow to almost straight
  • Keep torso stable - use your core
Bend Elbow

  • Lower yourself back down, to start position (see top photo)
  • Go twice as slow as the push up move, this works your arms even more

DO:

  • Spread your fingers wide so your fingers take weight and not just your wrist.
  • Really keep your torso supported throughout exercise. This makes the exercise easier, but also turns it into a more full body exercise.
  • Put padding under your hip if this hurts that bony protrusion (greater trochanter) on your thigh bone (femur).
  • Add this exercise into the Starter Arms routine. Just do them after the triceps dips.
