Pfft, push-ups? We're so over them. If you want to get muscular, flab-free and totally toned arms without doing a single push-up - check out these 9 amazing moves!

#1 Resistance Band Chest Press

Attach your band to a doorway and face away from the anchor point. Hold the handles with hands shoulder-width apart, fingertips facing down. Exhale as you press your hands straight out in front of you and soften your knees. Resist the band as you inhale while releasing your hands back to the start position. Do 3 sets of 8 reps.

#2 Triceps Dips

Use a chair or bench and place your hands on the seat. Stretch your legs out and slide your bum off the chair so your feet and hands are supporting you. Lower yourself down until the chair touches your back. Press yourself upwards keeping your back straight. Do 3 sets of 10 reps.

#3 Chest Fly

Holding dumbbells in each hand above you while lying flat on your back on a stability ball, slowly lower your arms to the side. Engage your core as you do so. Lift arms up and repeat. Do 3 sets of 10 reps.

#4 Wall Press

Keeping hands shoulder-width apart, place them on the wall. Walk your feet back until you're on your tippy toes leaning towards the wall. Bend your elbows until your face is near the wall, then push away it. Do 3 sets of 15 reps.

#5 High Plank

Start off lying face down on a mat with hands under your shoulders. Push up, tighten your core and bum muscles. Hold the plank for 15 seconds, relax and keep upping your time. Do 2 sets of 15 reps.

#6 Plank Taps

Start off in plank position with your core engaged and tap your right hand on your left shoulder. Don't lean your body from side to side, keep yourself front facing. Repeat with the other hand and that is one rep. Do 3 sets of 20 reps.

#7 Push Plank

Start out in a forearm plank position. With toes and forearms on the ground, alternate from resting on your forearms to push-up position. Move back to the forearms while keeping you body flat. Do 3 sets of 20 reps.

#8 Walking Plank

Start off in high plank position and "crawl" by moving your left foot, followed by your left and then the right foot and right hand. Go two paces and head back for another two paces to complete one rep. Do 3 sets of 5 reps.

#9 Suspension Rows

Start with feet shoulder-width apart. Holding handles and facing away from the anchor, lower your upper body towards the floor. Pull your torso towards the handles until your chest reaches them, then ease back to starting position. Do 3 sets of 10 reps. Try these workouts and show us your results!

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 4-6 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
