    Dumbbell t push ups are surprisingly hard. They are like dumbbell renegade pushups on steroids. I am growing to love these though because they are great for core strength and also great for shoulder health. Any type of rotational push up like this, and especially dumbbell rotational push ups are outstanding for hitting all of the shoulder and back musculature that many lifters tend to ignore in favor of more front delt/pressing type movements. If using a dumbbell is too hard then you can progress up to these by first getting proficient at doing regular t pushups (without the dumbbells_. Give them a try!
