  1. Push-ups (can be done on your knees or in full plank position)

  2. Triceps dips (with bent knees or straight legs)

  3. Shoulder press (add a hand weight of 5 to 10 lbs.)

  4. Bicep curl (add a hand weight of 5 to 10 lbs.)

Perform each exercise for a total of 10 to 12 repetitions, move on to the next exercise and repeat 3 times through.
