Getting to the gym can sometimes be hard, but what happens when you want to work out and you don’t have any equipment? These three arm exercises can be done in your living room, hotel room, or when you’re sitting by the pool. You’ll be using your body weight as the resistance and you’re sure to feel a burn. So, no more excuses when you are feeling unmotivated to go to the gym.
Start in a high plank position with your hands flat on the floor shoulder-width apart, and your wrists under shoulders. Keep your body in one long line from shoulders to heels, bend elbows at a 45-degree angle to your body, and lower yourself toward the floor. Press through your palms to return to starting position.
Plank Shoulder Tap
A slightly harder alternative to the plank. Start in a high plank position with your hands flat on the floor shoulder-width apart, your wrists under your shoulders. Tap the right hand to left shoulder, then return to start, then left hand to right shoulder and so on.
Place your hands on a bench and straighten your legs out in front of you. Bring your butt of the bench and slowly lower yourself to the floor by bending your elbows behind you. Straighten your arms with your triceps and repeat.
