3. Tricep Dips + Push-ups
Using the balance trainer. Do 4 tricep dips – Start seated with your hands at your hips and fingertips facing front. Engage your arms, core and glutes as you inch forward slightly and lift yourself off the balance trainer. Bend your elbows to lower your body and then engage your triceps to lift you back up. After the 4th tricep dip, turn over and do 4 tricep push-ups. Repeat.
4. Single Arm Burpees
Do 4 single arm burpees – plant your left hand down, hop your feet back to come into a single arm plank. Hop your feet back up to your hands and jump straight up. That’s 1 burpee – do 4. After the 4th one, do 1 push-up and then repeat with the other arm.
