Downward "V" Push-Up

The goal here: stronger biceps and shoulders. If this is too tough, try it with your knees bent, Kaiser says.

1. Get into a downward "V" position, with your feet together and your fingers turned toward one another. Stand on the balls of your feet so the majority of your weight is placed on your hands. Tuck your chin in and keep your back flat.

2. Slowly bend your elbows, as though you're trying to tap the top of your head to the floor. Straighten your arms again. Repeat 15 times.
