Arm Exercises

Push-ups – 10 repetitions

Shoulder Twist – 15 repetitions with 5-8 pound weights

Take dumbbells in each hand, stand on the right foot for some extra core and keep your hands facing the shoulder bend in the elbows. After this twist and straighten your hands and then face them out. Keep you balance on one leg to engage the core to a maximum.

Lateral Raise with balance – 12 repetitions with 5 pound weights

Get in a position where you stand on the left foot with your arms by the sides of your body and then lift them to form a T position. Holding the dumbbells raise your arms but no higher than the shoulders.

Reverse Flies – 15 repetitions with 8 pound weights

Take a dumbbell in each hand while you stand on two feet straight. Start bending forward at the hips while your arms are hanging straight down. From this position spread your chest, focus out and then arch the lower back slightly. You should keep your knees slightly bend while you do this exercise.

Bicep Curls Up Against the Wall

Stand again on your two feet while your back is flat against the wall. Bend the knees and keep your arms next to your body to increase the challenge.

Triceps Dips – 20 repetitions

Get a bench or a chair and place your hands shoulder width apart. You need to keep the energy in the heels while the fingertips are pointed toward the glutes. Start sliding your buttocks off the front of the bench and extend the leg out in front of you. Keep your arms straightened and your elbows a bit bent. Try to keep the tension on the triceps and not the elbow joints. When you reach this position start to slowly bend the elbows and lower the body toward the floor until you form a 90 degree angle with your elbows. Go back to the starting position and then repeat again.
