ExerciseTV: Tricep Push Ups With a Chair

Did you know that a regular old chair is a great exercise prop? Not only are they great for squats and the more difficult single leg squats, but you can also use it to work your triceps. Yep, the back of your upper arm that can unfortunately get flabby with age. This exercise puts a new twist on the standard tricep push up, and I am pleased that my friends over at ExerciseTV were generous enough to share this video and to sponsor this post.

So grab a chair and get working!

You should definitely check out the extensive video library at ExerciseTV. There is no reason to ever be bored with your workout again!

I love doing these little exercises. I finally brought in some small free weights at my desk. When the day get a little stressful, I pull these out and just do a set of curls or something!

Thanks, Fit. I'm determined to have "good arms" by Spring, so these exercises are great.
