5 Exercises for great arms… everyday for 3 weeks and you will not only feel the difference but you will see the difference.

(1) Walk like a Bear

A. Stand with feet hip-width apart. Hinge at the hips to bend over and place palms flat on the floor.
B. Walk hands forward to high plank position, pause, then walk them back in toward feet, lifting hips and keeping legs straight.

Repeat for 30 seconds.

(2) Triceps Dips

A. Sit on the floor, fit feet flat in front of hips and hands behind hips, fingers pointing toward heels. Press into hands and feet to lift hips off the floor.
B. Bend arms so they’re as low as possible, elbows pointing backward. Then squeeze triceps to straighten arms.

Repeat for 30 seconds.

(3) Push-Ups

A. Start in a high plank position. (To modify, lower knees to the floor and lift feet.)
B. Lower chest all the way down to tap the floor, elbows pointing backward at 45-degree angles.
C. Press chest away from floor, keeping core tight.

Repeat for 30 seconds.

(4) Downward dog to Upward dog

A. Start in a downward dog position, hips lifted and heels driving toward the floor.
B. Bend elbows to lower face, then chest, then stomach toward the floor in a scooping motion, continuing the arc to come into an upward dog.
C. Press into palms, bent elbow, and reverse the motion, shifting hips back into downward dog.

Repeat for 30 seconds.

(5) High Plank to Low Plank

A. Start in a high plank position.
B. Lower to the right elbow, then the left elbow to come into low plank, keeping core tight and trying not to rock hips back and forth.
C. Press into the left palm, then the right palm to return to high plank.

Repeat for 30 seconds, alternating which hand raises/lowers first.
