Hi, I am Dave Dubail with the Dubail Fitness Institute in Miami, Florida. In this clip I am going to show you how to do planche push ups. Planche push ups are a great variation to add to your push up program. They really isolate the triceps, and you have got to remember to keep your body up really tight. But unlike the traditional one that works more of the chest, and the shoulders, and the triceps this one really isolates the triceps. So it is a great, great exercise to add to your routine to target the triceps. Let me show you how it's done. Unlike A traditional push up where your hands are going to be close to your chest you are going to move them down close to your waist. Remember to keep the same straight form with your hips, and you really just don't want to move them up and down it is all triceps. You lower and you push up. And the other important thing to remember on these is instead of like with the traditional push up where your elbows go out so you can work your chest you want your elbows pointing backwards. So it is going to be hip level, really hitting the tries, and then go backwards instead of out. If they start going out just start taking away the pressure on the triceps so you are not really working the way this push up is designed to. So again basic push up, change, bring it in tight right down to the waist, and to add variation you can hold it down at the bottom, press it straight up, hold, and then just start repping them out. And keep the pressure right on the triceps. Great exercise, great tricep exercise, you really can start to develop that upper top tricep exercise all the way down to the end. Once again this is David Dubail, thanks for watching.
