Close Grip Pushups – Triceps Exercise Guide with Photos


Exercise Advice: This exercise is your basic pushup, but with your hands positioned close together. As you lower your body down, make sure to keep your elbows in to keep all the tension on the triceps muscle. If you let your elbows turn out, you will be working more of the pectoral muscles (chest) than your triceps. Push up to the starting position while keeping your elbows in during the entire range of the movement.
