I love simple, no fuss but effective workouts and I think I may not be the only one. This upper body strengthening workout is exactly what you need to add to your workouts today to create a beautifully sculpted and strong upper body without any equipment or gym.

This workout is perfect to add to your current workout or if you don’t have much time it’s great on its own too. The magic about this workout is that it doesn’t just work your upper body, it works your core, abs and back at the same time. Why not give it a go today?

Push Ups

A classic and effective exercise that works your entire upper body. Start in a plank position with your hands on the ground, directly under your shoulders. Release your elbows until your shoulders are in line with your elbows. Push back up. Repeat for 10 reps.

Bodyweight tricep dips

Sit down on the ground with your knees bent. Position your hands behind your torso shoulder-width apart. Straighten your arms, keeping a slight bend in your elbow to avoid joint injury. Then bend your elbows and bring your body down towards the ground. Engage your triceps and try not to use your feet to carry your weight. 10 reps total or even go for 20.

Plank Ups

This is one of my favourite exercises! Begin in a plank position, hands firmly on the ground just below your shoulder. Then lower yourself down to a forearm plank. Come back up to plank position. Repeat 10 times.

Bodyweight Pike

This is a hybrid movement, basically moving between a plank and a downward dog position. Get into a plank position with your palms down on the ground right beneath your shoulders. Use your arms to push your body weight back. Move your booty and hips up into the air and into a downward dog position. Make sure your core is engaged and that you’re really pushing back that body weight through your arms. Repeat for 10 or 20 reps.


Repeat for 4-5 sets. The more the better.
