Pushups

Pushups can help tone your arms, and when done as part of HIIT training can give you maximum benefits in minimal time. Start with your body propped up by your feet and your hands shoulder-width apart. Push down and bend your arms into a 90 degree angle and then push back up to straighten your arms. If holding your body up is too difficult, drop down to your knees for a modified pushup.
