Personal trainer and fitness blogger for Love, Sweat, and Fitness, Katie Dunlop, brings a dynamic background of yoga, barre and boot camp to our FIIT Fridays series. Tune in for her key moves that will work your triceps and back. This week’s line-up includes Tricep Dips, the Lazy Lizard, the Pocket Plank, and Dolphin Push-ups. Let’s break that down for you.
Lower your body to the ground with your arms right below your shoulders, hands facing forward. Keep one foot on the ground with your knee bent, and the other leg raised above you. Bend your arms, so your body and booty lowers, and then raise your body back up again, making small, repetitive dips. If you couldn’t guess by its name, this move will be working your triceps.
The Lazy Lizard:
Lie down on your belly with your legs bent at a 90-degree angle and your arms bent at both sides of your chest. Do a push-up, only lifting your upper body, and repeat. This anything-but-lazy move tones your triceps like no other.
The Pocket Plank:
Assume your standard plank position and alternate lifting each arm back in a rowing motion. Like your typical plank, you are working your entire body, but this move adds a focus on your triceps and back.
Lower your body into a plank position with your arms bent underneath you. Pull your body up, lifting your booty in the air. Bring it back to starting position, and repeat!
