Weekly Wednesday Workout: Closed Grip Push Up

Time to work that upper body!

We have done a ton of push ups here on the Weekly Wednesday Workout but this is the first time we have seen the closed grip push up! I like this one because it targets different muscles and works with either the traditional way or with the modified push up. Notice that the elbows point back instead of to the side, a critical change from the regular push up. This move will definitely sculpt a sexy back!

Have you ever done a closed grip push up?

Oh how I hate these! I did a bootcamp class once where we did every kind of push-up I could think of, in between all the work stations. Everyone pretty much hated me after that class and so I knew it was a great one 🙂

I have in the past, but no sadly with my lower back an issue can’t do these. But still a great move and thanks for sharing, Nellie. Happy Wednesday!! 😉

These are so hard! If you can do them on your toes, you are my hero!

This is such a hard push up! I’m not very good at push ups in general, and these are definitely some of the toughest
