The Yoga Workout That Seriously Sculpts Your Arms
You know the drill: unroll your mat and ease in to your practice with a few sun salutations, flowing through a chaturanga-upward facing dog-downward facing dog combo. To supercharge this sequence—and really target your triceps—try the Vinyasa variation below. Prepare to feel the burn exactly where you want it.
Begin in straight-arm plank position with your shoulders over your wrists. Keep the belly tight and engaged. Exhale and bend elbows, lowering down to four-limbed staff (as shown). Inhale and roll forward on the tops of your feet. Sweep the chest forward, and arch the spine, coming into upward facing dog. Now instead of pressing back to downward facing dog, exhale as you lower the chest, bending the elbows behind you, and come back to four-limbed staff. Now inhale to straighten the arms (yes, you’re doing the “up” portion of a push-up!), returning to a plank position. Finally, exhale as you press the hips back, coming into downward facing dog. Repeat this sequence 3-5 times.
