Push-ups may not be everyone's favourite exercise, but fitness lovers and rare gym-goers can both agree, they do wonders for your core and arms.

In the video above by Health.com and trainer Anna Kaiser, we learn how one killer push-up (seriously, it make take a few attempts to perfect this one), can lead to strong and lean arms.

Starting with a downward-facing V-shape and walking your toes and heels towards your hands, lower yourself into a push-up and pull yourself back up. Sound complicated? Check out the full move in the video above.

And if push-ups just aren't your thing, you can also find some success in different types of curls. The kettlebell hammer curl and the zottman curl, can also help tone your arms.

If you are doing zottman curls, remember: use dumbbells that are about 50 to 60 per cent of the weight you would normally use for standard curls — you don't want to injure yourself.
