If you struggle to carry that last bag of groceries into your apartment, then it’s probably time to get your arms back in shape. Haven at Eldridge has a fitness center that’s open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and we want everyone to take advantage it. Use our dumbbells to get a little energy out and to put a little tone back into your arms.
To work out the back of your upper arm, grab two dumbbells with both hands and then spread your feet past your shoulders. Let your knees bend slightly, and put your arms up and over your head (your hands should be just slightly in front of your forehead). Keep your core engaged as you bend the weights directly behind your head and down to your shoulders. Your elbows should be close to your head and not on either side. Finally, bring your hands up and then down to your hips in a fast motion, and then start again.
The barbell curl is an easy way to build up your biceps, and it’s easy to do. Stand with your legs about shoulder width apart and then curl the barbell straight to your chest. Use the momentum from the motion to let yourself lean back as you curl up. Let your abs share some of the stress to build a tighter core. Finally, don’t rush the lift. The more focused you are on the pattern, the more likely you are to get the physique you want.
For a complete upper-body workout, try diamond-leg pushups. Spread your knees out in a diamond shape, and then do a set of push-ups for a little extra challenge. The more emphasis you take off your legs, the more you put on your chest, arms, shoulders, and delts. Push-ups are one of the best ways to engage multiple muscle groups for a more efficient workout!
