The best bit? You don’t even have to leave the house.
Maybe you have time to go to the gym. Maybe you don’t. But if you’re looking to tone your upper body – specifically, your arms – there is one exercise that far supersedes its peers which it comes to stronger, leaner wings, according to Lauren Bunce, pilates and yoga instructor. (She would know.)
“It’s all about the tricep dip,” she says.
“The humble tricep dip packs mean punch by activating all three tricep heads. Yes, your triceps are made up of three components, encompassing approximately two thirds of the muscle mass in your arm.
“Not only that, but tricep dips also target your shoulders, chest, back and core, which means, you need no equipment for an exercise that ticks all the boxes.
“Take a few minutes out of your routine and spend the time to do a series of these every evening at home. You don’t need any equipment, and for the best possible result, push up quickly and lower down slowly,” Bunce reccommends.
