Weekly Wednesday Workout: Tricep Push ups

I got a request from my friend Joi to focus on the the upper body, So let’s try to get guns like hers, shall we?

I like these, these are a regular move on the Jamie Eason program and I can barely get through the required 3 sets of 15! (sidenote: The lady in the video is JACKED! Dang! I bet if she was my trainer, she would scare me into losing the weight :)) These will have your triceps burning and begging for mercy. It is a fun twist on the regular push ups targeting that infamous flabby area most women have.

Have you ever tried Tricep Push ups?

Ha ha!! She’s definitely intimidating!! I love tricep push-ups!! I honestly like them best over any other dumbbell tricep move. They are also the ONE push-up I will allow my class to do on their knees:-)

Definitely couldn’t do these with my back now, but back in the day I used to love doing push=ups and these look they are definitely a bit more challenging. Thanks for sharing Nellie!! 🙂

Ok..first off…that trainer is VERY intimidating! LOL! I have done these before and they are super hard, and like you, they have my triceps burning before the set is even up!

I need her to train ME, dang!

I am horrible at tricep push-ups and don’t really like them so I rarely do them (probably why I’m awful at them). Other tricep moves aren’t that hard for me but I can’t seem to master these – I guess I will try some tomorrow!!!

You looked great doing it! The fact that you did it on your toes…amazing!

It’s Michelle! I’ve seen her in videos before. She is ripped. And I’d love Joi’s arms!!!

Nellie October 13, 2013 - 10:22 pm

Isn’t she awesome?! I am not sure if I’ve featured her before, but she is definitely a new favorite!

Tell Joi to stay off this page making me do this mess and I can’t even lift up a feet off the ground.

Joi October 9, 2013 - 1:47 pm

I love you too boo!

Nellie October 13, 2013 - 10:21 pm

Joi October 9, 2013 - 1:45 pm

Yes Lawd! You talking about my arms (Thx for the S/O), that woman is the truth!!! Oh and yes to the tricep pushups!

Reply
Nellie October 13, 2013 - 10:14 pm

Her physique is seriously OFF the CHAIN!

miss donna October 9, 2013 - 2:25 pm

can i just put me a set of arms like hers on lay-away at K-Mart?! i could probably get through one…like lifting myself up once…not one set!

Reply
Nellie October 13, 2013 - 10:14 pm

LOL Donna, girl. I am highly impressed by her physique! Amazing!

Tricep oushups are so difficult! But they do give you nice arms.

Can’t lie about that one!

Those look hard…but I guess that’s what you gotta do to look like her.

OMG is all I can say. I have horrible upper body strength so I would totally need to do something like this! xoxo

It’s a great workout to get some sexy arms!

Triceps are the weakest part of my body – I’ m sure of it!!! But they make arms look so good

Reply
Nellie October 13, 2013 - 10:11 pm

Don’t they though? That little muscle makes all the difference!

Leslie October 9, 2013 - 9:25 pm

Ugh…I hate push ups of any kind…and my most recent DVD workout has LOTS of push ups – one of which is tricep focused. But I don’t think I could do a single one of these!

Reply
Nellie October 13, 2013 - 9:59 pm

I am not a fan either but I can’t deny the effectiveness!

Carla October 9, 2013 - 9:27 pm

Triceps push ups are hard! I prefer to do dips on the bench. Clearly the easier route. Joi does have great guns!

And this woman…yeah, she is totally rocking the muscle!

Reply
Nellie October 13, 2013 - 9:59 pm

I like the bench dips too, both are really great for tricep work.

I struggle with all forms of push ups but especially these! I guess I know where I need to focus now 🙂

Reply
Nellie October 13, 2013 - 9:57 pm

🙂 These are definitely the toughest, push up in any form are tough really!

We did those in bootcamp last year! They were hard!

Nellie October 13, 2013 - 9:52 pm

They are no joke Michelle! I totally struggle to get through the set!

My Pilates teacher used to have us do the beginners’ version of this tricep pushup. I had guns back then. Lawd! Stuff hurt like heck, but I was looking the part. Gotta get back to those days and that level of fitness.

Reply
Nellie October 13, 2013 - 9:51 pm

I need to take Pilates more often!! Usually its the moves that hurt the most that have the biggest effect! 🙂
