With tank top weather only a few more months away, here is a quick exercise you can do in your dorm room to tone your triceps.

1. Find a chair that is stable and won’t roll away.

2. Place your arms shoulder width apart with your hands beneath you on the edge of the chair.

3. Slide out to the edge of the chair so only your arms are supporting your body. For beginners, keep your legs bent at a 90 degree angle.

4. Keep your body right next to the chair and go down so that your arms are bent at roughly a 90 degree angle. Then move back up. Perform this movement in sets of 15, three times a day.

5. Show off your nicely toned triceps!

If you are looking for more of a challenge, try these modified bench dips with your legs straight. And if you are a real pro, set another chair across from you and do this exercise with your feet on it.
