Sculpting nice arms requires more than doing bicep curls. Your triceps muscle comprises a large portion of the musculature in your upper arm. Many people have approached me asking about how to reshape the soft bit on the backside of their arms. This is a challenging area for many of us and this is one exercise you can add to your arsenal. The close hand triceps push up is not easy. You can try this from your knees or in the regular push up position. If you have a history of elbow/shoulder injury or pain you might want to substitute bench dips for this exercise.
If you would like to explore working with one of the awesome trainers in the Challenge series we would love for you to visit us at one of our Y centers. Keep up the great effort!
