So your triceps are weaker than you want—or you knew? Don’t worry, we won’t tell. Here are three moves to get you toned in time for tank-top season.

You don’t need a lot of resistance, says Barry’s Bootcamp trainer Noah Neiman, who gave us exercises you can do at home. All you need is a wall, and even New York apartments have those.

Do each of these moves in sets 0f 15, and work until you can’t get one more rep in. Triceps respond well (and quickly) to exhaustion. —Lisa Elaine Held

1. Forearm Wall Push-Up. Place your elbows and palms flush against the wall, and take a few steps back so that your weight is supported from elbow to palm. Then, extend your elbows out and back slowly.

2. Tricep Plank Push-Up. Start in a forearm plank position on the floor. Then, pop up onto your palms by lifting your elbows. Slowly let the elbows drop back down, and don’t let them bow out to the side. You can do it with two hands, or you can come up one at a time if you’re not strong enough.

3. Triangle Push-Up. Do a standard push-up, but make a triangle with your hands so that your thumbs and pointer fingers are touching. You can also do it on your knees if it’s too hard (pictured at right), and you don’t have to go all of the way down. Just do it as best as you can, even if you can’t get the full range of motion.
