Chest workout

1. Push ups

First, get down on all fours and place your hands slightly wider than your shoulders. Then, you straighten both your arms and legs. Slowly lower your body until your chest nearly touches the floor and then push yourself back up.

2. Bench press

First, lay down on your back on top of the bench, positioning yourself so your eyes are under the bar. Then, you grab the bar tightly and take the bar off the rack by straightening your arms. Lower the bar until it touches your mid chest and then push the bar back up by straightening your arms. If done at home and without equipment, a backpack with books can be used instead of a bar!

3. Ring rows

First, set the height of the rings according to the difficulty you want them at. The lower the rings, the higher the difficulty. Once you have decided that, grab a ring with each hand and lean back until your arms and body are straight. Maintaining your body straight, you bend your elbows to pull yourself up until you touch the rings with your chest. Slowly lower yourself and repeat. If done at home and without equipment you can use a resistant fabric tied around something stable in your home!

Tricep workout

1. Diamond push ups

Get on all fours and position your hands under your chest with your index fingers and thumbs touching, creating a diamond shape. Straighten your arms and legs and lower yourself slowly, stopping just before your chest touches the floor. Then, push yourself back up by straightening your arms and repeat.

2.Overhead tricep extensions

Begin with your feet at shoulder width and make sure to maintain your core tight. Hold a dumbbell, kettlebell or even a plastic bottle full of water (if you’re working out at home and without equipment) with both hands and lift it by straightening your arms above your head. Then, bend your elbows and slowly lower the dumbbell behind your head while squeezing your triceps. Slowly straighten your arms again and repeat.

3.Strict press

Begin with your feet at shoulder width and grab the bar with your fingertips, resting it on your collarbone, with your elbows pointing forward. Then, push the bar above your head by straightening your arms and pause for a moment. Slowly lower the bar back to initial position and repeat. This exercise can also be done with dumbbells, kettlebells and even a backpack with books!

Remember to protect yourself in all of these exercises by wearing proper gear, such as wrist wraps, and in case you decide to workout at the gym, make sure you stay covered and protected with Bear Grips Shield Gloves, which are full finger workout gloves, so you no longer expose your hands to touching any surfaces. The touchscreen tips let you play your music and touch cardio screens. And don’t forget to wear their flexible breathable workout masks!
