5 equipment free exercises to tone your upper body

Choose your appropriate option for the clap push-up depending on your fitness and strength ability. These can be done on either your toes, knees or eliminate the clap altogether and just keep it a simple push-up.

Start in a plank position and use your arms to lower your chest towards to floor – a nice deep push-up will get great results. Push your chest back up as you would with a normal push-up but with more force, springing off the ground for a clap. Land with soft elbows to prevent injury and do your next rep.

Chair dip

Face away from the chair.

Place your hands behind you on the edge of the seat, shoulder-width apart. With your hands securely in place, step a foot or two away, and straighten your legs and keep heels in contact with the floor. Straighten your arms so that your body is lifted. This is your starting position.

Bend your elbows and lower yourself until your elbows are 90 degrees, hold, and re-straighten back to the starting position. Repeat.

Plank to palms 

Not only works your abs but targets your shoulders and triceps.

Get into a prone position on the floor, supporting your weight on your toes and your forearms. Your arms are bent and directly below the shoulder.

Leading with one arm, push upwards while keeping your core on tight and have your other arm follow the lead.

Reverse the action with the leading arm to take you back to the starting plank position.

Repeat 5 reps with one leading arm before swapping to the opposite arm to lead.

Keep your body straight at all times.

Repeat this exercise for 5 reps (each side) and 3 sets.

Here's some #MondayMotivation for you!
A reminder to eat your veggies, do your biceps curls and don't let boys be mean to you.. because if they do.. then you can put them in a headlock and choke 'em out 😝😤 #imhalfwaykidding

Why did you start your fitness journey?
Was it because of a bad break up? Did you do it to get healthy and in shape for your kids? Maybe it was for a fitness competition? ...Or one day did you just look in the mirror and decide right then and there to make a change? WHY DID YOU START? And what motivation do you have to continue?!!
