It Is Easy To Tone Your Triceps Using Only Your Body Weight.

Lifting weights is a great way to tone up and lose weight. Lets not forget that we can simply ‘use ourselves’ as our weights and still manage to tone up and slim down. Here are 6 exercises you can do in the comfort of your own home or at the gym, with no use for any dumbells or weights of any kind.

1- Triceps Diesel Dips.

Sit with your legs extended and heels on the floor. Place your hands shoulder-width apart behind your butt, with wrists below your shoulders and your fingers towards your butt. Squeeze your inner thighs together, press into your hands and lift your butt off the floor. Lift right leg and hold, alternately bend and straighten elbows. Do this 15 times, repeat on the opposite side, then with both heels on the floor.

2- Patty Cake Push-Ups.

Get into the ‘up’ part of the push up position. Touch your left hand to your right elbow, then your right hand to your left elbow. Next do a push up. Do 10 reps.

3- Leg Extensions.

Stand with your feet hip width apart and your thighs squeezed toward each other. Raise your right leg, knee bent at 90 degrees. Tighten your quads and extend your leg straight out in front of you. Do 10 reps, then keep your leg exteded out in front of you and pulse it about 2 inches up and down 1o times. Repeat on the opposite side.

4- Squat Jumps.

Stand with your feet shoulder width apart. Push your butt back and lower yourself into squat position. With your knees behind your toes, pulse up and down 3 times. Next jump off the floor and tap feet together in mid air. Land softly in squat position. Do 10 reps.

5- Oblique Hops.

Crouch with your palms on the floor. While keeping your abs tight and hands anchored, hop your feet to the left, hop back to the middle, then to the right. Do 15 reps.

6- Leg Extension Crunches.

Sit with your hands on the floor behind you, palms down and fingers towards your butt. Lean back on your butt bones, tighten your abs and crunch your legs in towards your body. Extend your legs, then raise them as high as you can. Lower your legs towards the floor but do not let them touch the ground. Do 15 reps.

  Doing this set 3x a week for 6-8 weeks will show you a noticeable improvement in your muscle tone. Remember you also must be eating well 🙂
