It’s Two for One Saturday here at Train Your Body- Change Your Life! I guess I am inspired by watching people work out right now :0) Here we go….
The Tricep Torcher
Equipment: A box, bench, chair, beam- anything elevated.
The Move: Start with your hands on the sides of your hips (closer together if you want more of a challenge), butt hanging off the edge of the box. Keeping your shoulders back and down away from your ears, bend your elbows to 90 degrees while keeping your legs as straight as you can and your butt close to the box.
Slowly push yourself back up, using your arms, not legs, to start position. Repeat as many times as you can!!
*Remember, the closer your feet are to your butt, the easier it is. To make it more challenging, try putting your feet on a Bosu, Airex pad, another bench or going single leg :0)
And to finish off our tricpes, here’s a goodie!
Tricep Box Pushups
Equipment: a Box, bench, bosu ball, medicine ball (if you’re a little nutso)
The Move: Start with your feet hip width apart and hands shoulder width apart on the box. Make sure you are at a nice angle to the box, with knees, hips and shoulders in a straight line.
Slowly lower your body toward the box, keeping your arms close to the side of your body, elbows going behind you, not out to the side. Keep your neck neutral by looking at the top of the box. Hold at the bottom for a second, then draw in your abs and push yourself back up until your arms are straight. Repeat as many times as you can muster!
Remember, you can’t banish the bat wing with these alone. Make sure you add in some good interval work with cardio too!
