How to Diamond Push Up

Starting Position

1. Get into a standard plank position, with your hands shoulder-width apart and your feet together.

2. Place your hands on the ground slightly wider than shoulder-width apart and keep your hips and core tight.

Proper Form

1. Lower your body until your chest and thighs touch the ground.

2. Push up explosively, and as you come up, rotate your hands outward so your thumbs touch the ground.

3. As you come up, rotate your hands back to the starting position and repeat.

Breathing Technique

1. Inhale as you lower your body and exhale as you push up.

2. Keep your breathing steady and consistent throughout the exercise.


1. Make sure to keep your body in a straight line throughout the exercise and avoid arching your back.

2. Avoid locking your elbows and keep them slightly bent throughout the exercise.

3. Keep your core and hips engaged throughout the exercise.
