This Week's Ask Gilad Blog


What would be a good alternative to push ups and triceps dips for good arm "definition" and toning?" I recently injured my elbow ("tennis elbow") and it is painful to the joint to use my body weight. Thanks.

How about this:

The best alternative that would put less pressure on the joints is to use
weights for resistance. When using weights you are in control of the amount of weights you are using and are able to better control your movement and form and work around the injuries.

Supine dumbbell or barbell press would be good alternative for a push up to target the chest muscles and overhead triceps extensions would be a good exercise for the back of the arm & the triceps.
