1. T Push-Up

T Push-Up

Chest and arms can be strengthened with this potent push-up. It also helps in shaping up the waist.

  • You should start with a plank pose, and elbows have to be bent, thereafter lower into a push-up, your arms till the torso is about 2 to 4 inches from the ground.
  • While pushing back up, make your arms straight and lift the left arm in the direction of the ceiling, twist into a side plank pose such that your body makes a T shape, that is, the body should be rotated to the left to form the T.
  • Swivel back to the plank, left palm should be placed on the floor in a manner that facilitates lowering into a push up. The right hand and the outside of the left foot should be used for the purpose of balancing.
  • As you make your arms straight, swivel to the left, levitating the right arm upwards. Go back to the plank. Swap sides for a minute. Relax when you feel the need to.

2. TKO (Total Knockout) Punches

A punching drill may be used to amplify the cardio and carve out the arms. If you’ve never done these boxing moves before, have a look at a few tutorial videos online that clarify how to do the basic punches.

  • For a minute, drill a mixture of cross, jab, uppercut and hook punches.

3. One-Legged Mountain Climbers

  • Make the left foot jump or push inside and outside for 30 seconds. Afterwards change and do again on the other side.
  • Carry out this for a minute. The power can be augmented with faster stepping.

Remember to place the hands slightly wider than shoulder width, upon the floor.

The archetypal callisthenic work out helps to keep the  heart rate up as the whole body is made to work out. It is also called the side-straddle hop.

  • The legs should be spread wide. The hands should touch overhead, from time to time in a clap, and then one should inveterate to a stance with the feet as one and the arms should be at the sides.
  • Make the left foot jump or push inside and outside for 30 seconds. Afterwards change and do again on the other side.
  • Jumping jacks should be performed for a minute prior to the circuit being restarted.
