Try It: Triple Clap Push-Up

Push-ups are the one exercise I always try to do when strength training. How about you? You only need to do a few and already you start to feel it in your upper arms and back. There are some great variations such as the T Push-Up, One Elbow In, One Elbow Out, and Chair Push-Ups. Tired of those and looking to try something new? Then give this Triple Clap Push-Up a whirl.

Yeah, OK, maybe your upper body isn't quite there yet, so get a little help from an exercise ball. Lie on your belly on top of the ball and roll forward so your hands are under your shoulders. As you push off the ground and lift your hands up, you'll rock back slightly and be able to clap three times before landing on the ground again. It's a fun exercise that works your upper body a little differently than regular push-ups.

This just looks sadistic - why would you want to do this to yourself? Sure he looks ripped, but [shudder] imagine the work involved [shudder]. I can barely do a girlie push up.

Yeah, I'll be sticking to the ball version of this one. I can't even clap ONCE in the air while doing a pushup, let alone three times!

WOW! That doesn't even look real. Maybe I'll be ready to do that in a month. Yeah Right.
