With a few simple tweaks, this classic move can become an even better toner. Build on a classic push-up.

 

Start in a classic push-up position. Bend arms and lower chest to the floor, as you push back up, lift right arm straight in the air while rotating torso to the right to form a T with your body. Return to start and repeat on left side.

 

Make it Harder: Use 5 to 8 pound dumbbells to add resistance during the lifting phase.
