9. Close-Hand Pushups aka Diamond Pushups
What it works: triceps
How to do it: Get down on all fours. Extend your legs so you’re on the balls of your feet. Position your hands closer than shoulder-width apart. Lower your body as far as you can. It’s best if your chest nearly touches the floor. Exhale, then use your triceps to drive yourself up.
Expert tip: If this is too difficult, bend your legs at the knees to take away some of the resistance, Okafor says. Alternatively, perform the exercise against a wall.
