2. Push Ups
Traditional push-ups target your chest, shoulders, triceps, and abs. But making a few tweaks to your push-up form will let you target your biceps. Diamond push-ups get their name from the shape your hands take during the exercise and force your arms closer together to help you train your biceps.
HOW TO DO A DIAMOND PUSH-UP
- Start in standard push-up position. Your back should be flat and parallel to the floor.
- Place your hands together and keep your arms straight.
- Rotate your hands inward about 45 degrees and extend your thumbs—the open space between your thumbs and pointer fingers should look like a diamond.
- Engage your core.
- Slowly lower yourself until your chest almost touches the ground.
- Hold the position for two seconds before pushing yourself back up.
- Repeat steps 4 to 6 for each rep.
