Tricep pushes

Elbow touches

Stand on your yoga mat and stretch your arms forward. Then close your fists and bend your elbows at 90 degrees. Now bring your bent elbows closer to your face so that they touch. Do this 10-15 times.

Half cobra pushup

Lay down on your stomach. Place your hands on the side in a way that your palms are pressed on the ground next to your armpits. Now keep your elbows straight and lift the upper half of your body. Hold for a second and lower your back. Do this at least 10-15 times.

Prayer pulses

In this exercise, you have to ensure that your elbows touch each other at all times. Get your palm together in ‘Namaste’ posture; make sure they are at the level of your chest. Now maintain the posture and move your arms up and down. Do this 10 times; it engages not only the biceps but also your pectorals and the shoulders.
