3. Tricep dips
Sit on the edge of a bench or chair with your knees bent and feet on the floor in front of you. Place your palms face down next to your thighs and, keeping your arms straight, scoot forward until your hips and bum are in front of the seat.
Bend your elbows to lower your hips until your upper arms are parallel to the floor then push. Keep your knees bent or straighten your legs to make things tougher.
Strong arms assist the full movement of your run – and when you’re flagging towards the end of a long distance amble you won’t believe the boost powerful arm movements will deliver.
As an added bonus, tricep dips also force you to engage your abs and glutes at the same time.
New Balance Toughest Opponent is a story about the battles we have within ourselves. The niggling mind games that play out between our ears that make us question whether to run that extra mile, to lift that heavier weight, or to go forward and push harder, faster and stronger than we did the day before.
