How do you do a Diamond Push-Up?
Start in a plank position on all fours with your legs extended behind you and your hands stacked directly under your shoulders.
Position your hands close together, spreading your fingers to create a diamond shape with your index fingers.
Begin to lower your chest to the floor while keeping your back flat.
Press back up into a full arm extension and repeat.

What are the benefits of a Diamond Push-Up?
A diamond push-up is a total-body exercise that engages your entire core, which is more than just your abdominals.
It’s your thighs, gluteals, abdominals and low back. Sometimes, I even add in alternating knees bends as I lower the body. When you correlate the movement to the beat of the music, it feels a little like a choreographed dance.
