Upper body workout – no equipment needed!

Working out in a gym is unrealistic for many of us for a variety of different reasons. We’ve put together a whole workout for your upper body which doesn’t use any equipment and can be done from the comfort of your own home.

High Plank

Start in the high plank position with your hands flat to the floor underneath your shoulders. Hold this position for 1 minute.

Body weight tricep dips

Position your hands shoulder width apart flat on the floor with your legs extended in front of you, bent at the knee. Straighten your arms so your body is lifted off the floor apart from your feet. Bend at the elbow and lower yourself towards the ground until you reach the floor, then lift yourself back up. Repeat 10 times.

 

Press up/modified press up

Start on your knees and keep your hands shoulder width apart and flat to the floor. Bend your elbows, until your chest reaches the floor and push back up.

Another option is a full press up – complete the same movement as above but keep knees off the floor.

Repeat 10 times.
