Why Diamond Kiss Pushups work:
diamond kiss push-up works so well because you’re putting an extra amount of strain on your triceps because of the position that they are in.
Make sure that you keep your elbows pointed out during this exercise. It’s also important to make sure that your body is in a straight line. If you start to let your pelvis region sink down then that means that your form is going.
Important!: Breathe in as your body lowers down, breathe out as you push back up.
