Side Lying Tricep Push Up

  • HOW: Start by lying on your side. Lay on the opposite shoulder you want to work. Place your lower hand on the top shoulder lifting that elbow off of the ground. Place your top hand on the ground in front of your bent elbow. The higher up you place your hand the easier this will be. Push into the ground causing your triceps to engage and straighten your elbow. Lower yourself down and repeat for the prescribed amount of reps. 
  • FEEL: You should feel the triceps muscles in the top arm working as you push yourself up. 
  • COMPENSATION: Keep the side lying position at all times, don’t lean backwards or forwards.
