Medicine ball tricep push-ups strengthen the triceps, shoulders and chest. This exercise requires balance and core control. It is intermediate to advanced in difficulty, but beginners can modify it by keeping their knees on the floor.
Begin by kneeling in front of a medicine ball with your hands on the ball. Maintaining your balance, extend legs straight behind you with toes curled under. Keep your body straight as you slowly lower yourself, bending the arms until your chest touches the ball. Push up to starting position, maintaining a straight body. Do 2 to 3 sets, 10 to 20 reps.
