Work your triceps and pectoral muscles with dips. 

Tricep dips - IMAGE - Women's Health and Fitness

1. Position your hands shoulder-width apart on a secured bench or stable chair.

2. Slide your butt off the front of the bench with your legs extended out in front of you so your thighs are 90 degrees parallel to the ground.

3. Push up by straightening your arms, keeping a little bend in your elbows to keep tension on your triceps and off your elbow joints. Keep your elbows in – don't let them angle out. Advance the tension by kicking out one leg and swapping.
