If push ups could be fun...

Move to try: Awesome Arm Workout

This is a flowing arm circuit, so it is done at a fun, fast pace. However, you may need to read it a few times to visualize it before you begin.

Stand up with feet wide apart.

Reach hands to the ground and walk out to push up position.

Push hips back, so you are in a downward dog position, with feet apart.

Pulse back twice and then move body forward into push up position and do one push up. (Hands never move)

Continue to double pulse back , one push up series for 8 push ups.

Then do one pulse, one push up for 8 reps.

Advanced, do one pulse, two push ups for 8.

Drop knees to ground and bring legs together.

Push back to child's pose.

From here, pulse back for two, move forward and push up for one.

Now pulse back two, come forward to push up and at the same time lift right leg into air behind you. Repeat with left leg. do 8 reps on each side.

To finish, drop to one pulse back, one push up forward. 8 reps each side.

Advanced, one pulse, two push ups, 8 reps each side.
