Weekly Wednesday Workout: Dive Bomber Push ups

We are back to building that upper body strength and boy do we have a doosie today!


I have seen these in different places but have never tried. I tried it for the first time and oh boy, these are not for the faint at heart. I think I topped out around 3?! These really work every single muscle in your arms. I wonder if they really do these in the army?! You guys know more than I do. I would like to build up my strength so that I could maybe do 10 of these without completely collapsing on the floor :).

 Have you ever tried dive bomber pushups?

Never was a pushups girl myself and still not. And these definitely look a bit to hard for me, but still thank you for sharing 🙂

These are just plain HARD! I can’t even attempt these with my classes b/c they will just laugh. As they should.
Great push-ups but not for the weak 🙂

I would totally giggle and pull out my cell phone to check my email because that would NOT happen in class LOL

I think that next to one arm push-ups (which I can’t do!) these might be the hardest ones. I always feel like a dork and struggle through them!!! Great move!

I can’t even begin to do a one arm pushup. I did one of these and called it quits LOL

I first started doing these a few years back when I didn’t have access to a gym and so opted for P90X. They’re such a killer exercise. Thanks for sharing!!

Those look so incredibly difficult! I’m still doing push-ups on my knees, so you won’t likely find me doing these anytime soon. Though I might just tell my husband to do a couple! (You know that would be hilarious)

Nellie, I probably couldn’t even do one! I was so bad at push-ups in school. Someone once said to me, “It’s ok that your upper body strength isn’t great. Your lower body strength grew and delivered two healthy babies!”
And how!
However, I’d still like to try this.

They look fierce! We did chest first pushups in CrossFit the other day and that was hard enough. I think I may be able to only do one or two of these;)
