Do you have four arms like that one Pokémon Machamp? If so, the hows and whys aren’t important. What is important is that you use those extra limbs to get nice and swole. These exercises will keep you from looking like a Machump the next time you hit the beach!
Normal push-ups only require one set of arms, and Ditto for the bench press. But why not take advantage of those extra appendages and do both at the same time? The two exercises together will work almost every muscle in your torso and arms, letting you get twice as ripped in only half the time.
Solo Arm Wrestling
Arm wrestling is a great way to work your biceps, but the only problem is you need a partner — unless you have four arms, that is! Have both arms on your left side clasp hands, and then repeat with the arms on your right side. Now sit down between two tables and rest both sets of elbows on their corresponding table. Once you’re in position, start arm wrestling. The best thing about this exercise is that no matter which hand wins, you’re always the Machampion!
Four Arm Forearm Plank
Start with a regular forearm plank. Place two of your forearms and elbows on the floor while pushing the rest of your body up and holding it there. Now place your other two forearms and elbows on the floor. Hold this position for as long as you can, eventually working up to 60 seconds per plank. Keep it up, and you’ll be in Pika peak shape in no time!
This is a variation on a childhood playground favorite. Hold one arm out straight in each direction — North, South, East, and West — and begin twirling around. Spin yourself around faster and faster until you become airborne. The twirling works your core, and as a bonus, you get to hover in the air for a few seconds. Look out Pidgey: flying isn’t just for bird Pokémon anymore!
