How to do an Uneven Push-Up by Matt Bible

I want to introduce you to a lesser known push-up. It primarily isolates your triceps, and it is a little bit tougher than the Close Grip Triceps Push-Up. This exercise also trains your muscles to get ready for the tougher one arm push-up.
You get into push-up position, but you support your body with one hand on the ground and one hand on either a basketball or a medicine ball. Bring your chest down to at least the level of where your hand is on the ball, keep your back flat, and your core engaged. If your right hand starts out on the ball and your left hand starts on the ground, then after that set is done, switch over so your left hand is on the ball and you right hand is on the ground. How many can you do on each side? Drop a comment below and spread the word about this excellent exercise. Impress your friends and build lean muscle at the same time.
