As the biggest muscle in your arm, the tricep plays a major role in your overall arm strength. Still, despite their importance, finding effective tricep workouts if you don’t have access to weights can prove difficult. Here are three weight-free exercises to develop your tricep strength today.

Diamond Pushups

Drop to the ground on all floors, ensuring that your feet are shoulder-width apart. Make sure your hands are parallel with your chest and proceed to connect your thumbs and index fingers together to make a diamond shape between your hands. Lower your body to the ground and push back up. If this proves too challenging, place your knees on the floor for added support.

Triceps Dips

Find a chair in your house and place it in an area where there is plenty of open space around it. Sit on the chair as you normally would and proceed to extend your legs out while keeping your feet on the ground. Place your hands next to your hips and lift your body up until your elbows are straight. Lower your body back down until your elbows are bent at a 90-degree angle and repeat.

Wall Push-Offs

Face a wall square one, standing a little further than an arm’s length away. Without moving your feet, rock your body forward and place your hands on the wall at about chin height. Then, lean your body toward the wall until your chin is almost touching, and use your hands to press your body away.
