Welcome to Fitness Friday! If you are new, my goal is to introduce you to or remind you of exercises that really work. If you are a regular, I hope your legs and tummy felt the burn of weeks one and two.
Today we’ll work on our triceps using our body weight as resistance. I’m going to show three variations of this exercise, starting with the least difficult version.
You can see that I can go much lower using a chair. At the gym, I use a bench to do this exercise and I don’t think that it is as difficult as it is with the chair. It’s nice to get a good burn without any fancy equipment.
The next version requires two chairs. Put your arms in the same position, but this time put your feet on a second chair. The movement for this version is exactly the same, you make it more difficult by adding on your body weight.
If you need to make it even more difficult, hold a weight on your lap or maybe your child.
My triceps were really burning after we shot these pictures. I promise you’ll feel this one and see results from doing it pretty quickly.
Next week we’ll work on our shoulders. I hope you’ll be back!
