Diamond Push-Up (Close Grip)

To perform a proper Diamond Push-Up (Close Grip), you must,

  1. Get on a mat. It’s a good idea to do this exercise on a mat, which will slightly cushion your hands. Doing it on a hard surface may be hard on your hands and wrists.
  2. Move into a push-up position. Face the mat and stretch out your arms and legs a bit to get ready.
  3. Place your hands under your chest and make a diamond shape. Touch your forefingers together and your thumbs together. This forms your diamond, also known as a pyramid.
  4. Lower yourself to the ground, then push up. Keep your back straight and tense your abs and chest. Make sure to keep your fingers in the correct diamond position. Repeat.
