Diamond push-up

The diamond push-up is an advanced variation of the push-up exercise performed with the hands in a diamond shape. It increases the challenge to the triceps, but also targets the chest and shoulders.


  1. Builds size and strength in the triceps
  2. Can be performed with hands in a triangle shape if the diamond is painful to the thumbs or wrists
  3. Can add pauses or manipulate tempo to increase difficulty
  4. Excellent triceps burnout if performed to failure
