Runner ups and cyclists are not just known for their win but they have the upper body strength to grab the reward. No matters how long you can run but only the upper body can hold you straight to pedal or walk.
Weakness in the upper body will lead you toward poor performance. Let’s go through a few Arm Workouts without Equipment.
Do these exercises for only 60 seconds and the rest depend on how long you can do these workouts?
Take a position by placing hands directly beneath shoulders and body posture must be in a straight line. Bend your elbows outward and bend your chest downside. In this posture, keep abs tight and body in the same line. Don’t try to push your hip down and stay in this pose for 1 second then back to the form. Again repeat push-ups and do as much as you can do.
Don’t try to push your body if you are not in the situation to perform extra push-ups. Keep the posture in a straight form otherwise, you might have back pain. A beginner can start it with 5 to 10 push-ups at a time and over time they can increase the count.
