Don’t have weights? No problem. No fancy gym equipment? That’s swell. I know first hand that using gym props can be expensive, tricky, and I’m here to tell you that you don’t need it at all. In fact, I believe some of the most challenging arm workouts involve our own bodyweight. Now, here’s where the challenge comes in. This video involves 3 full rounds, going from 5 reps, to 10, to 15, totalling to 30 reps of these 7 exercises. You’ve got this! We will work on exercises, below:
1: Forearm plank, then use your shoulder strength to army crawl forward three steps, and backwards three steps.
2: Full plank (on wrists), and tap hand to opposite shoulder, keeping hips balanced and still
3: Lay on your left side, keeping your arm closest to the mat down by your side, the other arm is being used to push up for a “side body pushup”
4: Repeat on the other side
5: Center pushup, on knees or in full plank, keeping elbows tucked in (this helps us focus on triceps rather than chest muscles)
6: Flip onto back, hands behind you with fingertips facing glutes, push hips up into a reverse tabletop, bend elbows for ‘tricep dip’
7: Staying in this same position, lengthen legs and hold in a reverse plank.
