This exercise incorporates a variation on the tricep dip that will also engage the core – all in one move!
The floor is just as effective at toning your arms as a weight bench or chair, making this move an excellent choice for working out at the beach or park.
By simply lifting one leg the move becomes more challenging because you’ll have to balance yourself which engages your core and ups intensity of this powerful exercise.
1. Sit on the floor with your knees bent, feet flat on the floor and your hands about a foot behind your hips. Keep palms shoulder-distance apart and fingers pointing toward you.
2. Engage your core and extend one leg upward and hold it there.
(Variation: Raise you leg at different angles to engage other muscles)
3. Bend at the elbows and lower your hips to the floor while keeping your leg extended.
4. Try not to bend at the hips to ensure your triceps get the brunt of the workout.
Reps: 10 to 15 and don’t forget to change legs!
