This week we will work on our shoulders and triceps with pike push-ups and triceps dips. Remember to warm up before working out. For every move, try to do four sets of 10. If it is too challenging, start with fewer repetitions.

1 On all fours with arms and feet slightly wider than the shoulder. Remember to bring your hip up.

2 Bend your arms to lower your upper body and forehead to the ground. Push back up to your original position.

1 Balance yourself with both arms in a steady position, such as a chair or a bench. Bend your legs to make it easier or straighten them to make things harder.

2 Bend your elbows to lower your body. You should not go lower than 90 degrees. Push back up to starting position.
