    Hi Redline

    Well, apparently, they are indeed. I'd never encountered that expression before.

    Hey Redline Thank you for this. Definitely a buried treasure. And I subscribed to your channel as well !!

    I have a question , are the tricep extensions the same as forearm push ups?
    I see the same exercises under different titles across Youtube and internet.
    When I do them though, I definitely feel a burn on my Triceps. And yes, there is little work needed as one of my arms goes up before the other. But I love these exercises.

    CDubs start with pushups where your upper body is inclined so that your muscles can get used to propper form then lower the height as it gets easier untill you can do a full pushup on the floor.

    Redline! You just absolutely ROCK! Thank you for this, it's actually great timing. I'm desperate to do even 1 (proper) push up I just can't seem to go down very far, I get to a point where I know if i go down any more my body will give out and I'll fall smack on my face. I actually had my husband hold me in a push up position where I'm down as far as you're supposed to be and then had him let me go, just to see what body part was giving me problems. I think I discovered that it's most certainly my chest (pecs?) since that's the part that screamed (loudly!) at me as soon as he let go. Any tips on chest exercises that can help get me to a push up one day (hopefully)?

    Thanks again for this info, very well put together:cheeron:

    Many thanks, Redline ! I'm still finding new treasures on the site. Off to read the article! Next time I'm at the gym, Meantime, it's planks on fingertips as long as I can hold them.

    You're most welcome, AceofSwords... even though I don't think your triceps are the key muscle to unlock 5-finger push-ups, actually. I think you should rather try to strengthen your forearms. Hanging on to a pull-up bar and switching your grip from prone to supine (as many times as possible) is a good way to do it - among many others. You could also try to hold a full plank with your fingers extended...

    Thanks for this! I'm trying to work toward five finger pushups. Currently my ability to do them is spotty at best and I think strengthening my triceps will help get me there.

    Redline good idea I loved your tricep research, maybe when darebee has muscle focused articles this data can be used for the tricep part.

    ... and since Ankur.R apparently managed to find this thread and like it even though it's been buried for a while in the Training section... I'm going to give it a little boost. Just in case more people find it useful.

    Candace - sure! Anything that works for you. If you can do between 8 and 20 reps in your first set, then, that's fine.
