For this activity you’ll want your hand weights. Start with a light weight or even a full water bottle and work your way up.

To target the triceps, use the hand weight again except this time start with your back slightly leaning forward and your elbow fully bent so that your hand with the weight is near your armpit. Then, slowly push your forearm out so that it is sticking out over your hip at the back of your body. Gradually return to the starting position and repeat.

This is one of the more intense body workout moves, so make sure to work your way up to this one. Start in a standing position with your hands in the air. Do a slight jump up, reaching as high as you can go, and then get down on your hands and knees and quickly move into completing a single push up. As you push yourself up, add a little extra force so you can quickly jump into standing position again.

13. Sit Up
