Hey friends, so last week I introduced different arm workouts depending on your level and today it’s the third set. It’s the most difficult so hopefully you’re up to the challenge and if you can’t complete a step that’s okay. Work on that step and little by little you’d be able to complete the step in no time!
Please don’t ever feel discouraged if you cannot attempt one of the moves at this time. That is okay. There are some moves I cannot accomplish right now but I know with a little practice I’ll nail them soon enough.
Below is another workout that can be completed in less than 5 minutes. (Sucks that you can’t use time as an excuse huh…)
BEWARE THIS ONE IS GOING TO HURT!
So I’m going to describe each move and the sequence will be on the bottom:
Regular Push Ups:
Start on all fours, with your hands and knees on the ground. Now push forward with your palms on the ground and with your toes on the ground. Make sure to keep your back straight and that your shoulders are aligned with your elbows.
Pylo Push Ups:
Okay so you’re pretty much going to start as if you were going to do a regular pushups. But instead of just lowering yourself down you’ll have to push up quickly, lifting your hands off the floor and clap your hands. Then you go back and repeat the steps.
Okay for this one you’ll need a chair, bed, sofa, or table. Sit in front of the edge with your knees at a 90 degree angle and your feet together. Now bend your elbows and lower your butt, once you get low enough (you’ll feel when it’s the right time to stop) push back up to the starting position.
Triangle Push Ups:
Go into plank position and form a diamond with your hands. Now push forward with your palms on the ground and with your toes on the ground. Make sure to keep your back straight and that your shoulders are aligned with your elbows.
10 Regular Push Ups
10 Pylo Push Ups
10 Tricep Dips
10 Pylo Push Ups
10 Triangle Push Ups
Ideally, this should take less than five minutes but if it takes you a bit more that’s definitely okay. And if you want more of a workout go ahead and repeat this sequence three times.
This workout will definitely leave your arms sore!
