Tricep Dips

At Home Arms

By Darla Hyde

Many of us struggle to find time to make it to the gym every day.  So here is a simple arm workout that can be performed at home incorporating your chest muscles, your triceps and shoulders. All of these exercises can be modified to be more or less challenging so try them out to see what best fits you!

Push Ups– Keep your body straight by not allowing your back to arch or letting your bottom stick high up in the air. When going down get your chest about a fist distance away. If this is too difficult keep your knees on the ground as shown below or instead of doing them on the ground, find a counter. Aim for 3 sets of 10.

Tricep Dips – Have your knees bent at 90 degrees of your legs straight out in front of you. Put your hands with fingers facing toward your feet on the couch or surface you can find that is about that height. Have elbows facing away from you. Slowly bend elbows and press back up. Aim for 3 sets of 12.

Shoulder Raises- Start with your arms at your side and slowly raises them up to the height of your shoulders. To make more difficult find something you can hold in each hand such as a bottle of ketchup or a can of soda. Aim for 3 sets of 10 with raising arms to the side and raising arms out in front of you as shown below.
