5 ways to tone your arms without using weights

Exercise #2: Floor Dips.
You can do dips in a chair, but Graham says that people often lift up too high, turning the workout into more of a pelvic thrust than an arm workout. On the floor, it’s easier to watch your form.

To do them, sit on the floor with your knees bent and your feet and fingers facing forward, as if you’re about to do a crab walk.  Then, tighten your abs, tuck your glutes, and lift your pelvis up until your body is in a reverse tabletop position. Lower your body by bending your arms, activating your triceps. As you near the floor, keep your butt off the floor so that your core and arm muscles remain active.  Keep repeating the dips for one minute.

Tip: If you’re a beginner or don’t necessarily have core control yet, it’s okay to touch the ground, but try to touch it just slightly and push back up.
