Toned Arms: Triangle Push-Ups

Triangle Push-ups

New research from the American Council on Exercise found that the triangle push-up is the best move for toning all the muscles in the arms. Though this move is very difficult, you can easily modify it by doing the push-up on your knees instead. Begin with your hands on the floor below your chest, and place your hands together to form a triangle with your thumbs and index fingers toughing. Keep your hands in this position while performing the push-up and try for at least five push-ups and build your way up.
