Round off a push-up routine with weights
The push-up is always an effective and efficient strength-training move because it works your chest, back and arms. But if you're looking for a new way to do push-ups, try performing them with a set of dumbbells in your hands. You'll support your wrists and get a different angle on a traditional exercise. Start off by doing this move on your knees and, as you progress, straighten your legs and perform it on your toes.
