Situation: In the kitchen
Exercises: Upper arms and back

If you find yourself in the kitchen waiting for something to finish, why not use that waiting time for a little workout? This one requires a kitchen with a corner.

Grab hold of the kitchen top and lift your feet from the ground. Do the dips as deep as you can, preferably to the point where your upper arms are parallel to the floor. It’s quite heavy and if you don’t have enough upper arm strength you can make it a bit easier by lightly resting your feet on the floor.
