Not enough time to get to the gym? No problem! Just grab that old dumbbell and try these three moves from Megan Hoel with Penrose St. Francis.

Serve the Tray:
Start standing with your chest upright, and your elbows bent at 90 degrees. Keep your arms close to your body. Hold dumbbells in your hands with palms facing up towards the ceiling. Move arms directly out in front of you, like you are serving a tray. Return to the starting position, and repeat 12 to 15 reps.

Stir the Pot:
Start standing with your chest upright, and your arms straight out in front of you. With both hands hold the dumbbell so that the dumbbell is in a vertical position. “Stir the pot” moving to the right side for 10 to 15 reps, and then reverse the direction.

Tricep Pulses:
Start standing with your chest upright, and your arms straight behind your thighs. Make sure your palms are facing directly behind you, and pulse both arms back keeping arms straight. Repeat for 20 to 25 reps.
