Pectorals, Pushups and Variations

Re-thinking an old standard:

MEDICINE BALL PUSH-UP (inner chest, lower chest, triceps) Get on your knees and place your hands along the sides of a medicine ball, spreading your fingers wide to help grip the surface. (If you don’t have access to a medicine ball, use a soccer ball, basketball or any other round object.) The space between your index fingers and your thumbs should form the shape of a diamond. Balance your weight on the ball, then carefully extend your legs behind you to assume the traditional push-up posture (7a). Lower yourself down until your chest touches your hands (7b), then slowly press yourself back up and repeat for as many repetitions as possible.
