#ThreeWayThursdays ? 🤔
Try this push tri-set / superset on for size for a full blown upper body workout that leaves pretty much no above-the-belt stone unturned. 3-4 rounds of 8x8x8 reps with little to no rest between exercises (that means 16 in total for the archers so each side gets a full 8 💪) ..
...put extra emphasis on your pecs (chest), front delts (shoulders) and biceps/triceps (arms) by moving the majority of the body's weight onto one side. The core is also challenged substantially as it creates a rotational load the muscles of the trunk have to control. And it's THE move you want to start working on if you're looking to move up to Single-Arm Push-Ups. 👍
...are the best bodyweight movements to isolate the triceps, as the movement only occurs at one joint (the elbows). Of course, your abdominals (front to back) are also working hard in a static hold throughout, developing core stability. ✊
90 DEGREE(ish) PIKE PUSH-UPS...
...are a great progression to aim for from Pike Push-Ups (the same exercise performed with your feet on the floor) to put further emphasis on your shoulders, and to get used to the vertical pressing position so you can move up to Handstand Push-Ups. 🙃
You can regress all of these as you need; get onto your knees or press to a raised surface for the first two and/or work on Push-Backs (#google) or Pike-Push-Ups instead of the 90 Degree version. 👊💯
