The BEST Arm Workout. Period.

The American Council on Exercise wanted to help us find the solution, to one of our biggest problem areas... the dreaded upper arm flab.

They compared 8 different tricep exercises: triceps kickbacks, overhead triceps extensions, bar push-downs, rope push-downs, closed-grip bench press, lying barbell triceps extensions, triceps dips and triangle push-ups and found one clear winner in effectiveness:

The triangle push-up!

The study shows they are the best at targeting all the major parts of your triceps. So start pushing ladies, and wave a final goodbye to flabby arms!... You know, without them waving back...

How to Do a Triangle Push-Up: It's a variation of regular pushups, but you position your hands together, forming a triangle with your fingers.

1- Start in a plank position.

2- Adjust your hand placement so that thumbs tips touch and forefingers (pointer) finger tips touch, so that they form a triangle.

3- Place your hands directly under the middle of your breastbone, in line with your shoulders.

4- Maintain plank position (keep abdominals, glutes and quads engaged) as you lower and raise your body. Don't let your back sag or hips move upward/forward as you do the push-up movement.

Work your way up to doing 3 sets of 8-15 reps.

If starting in plank position is too hard, modify by placing your knees on the floor or doing triangle push-ups against the wall. Read more about triangle push-ups. (YouBeauty)
