WORKOUT WEDNESDAY

by Amanda Fitzpatrick, ACSM-CPT, ACE-GFI

Tone your arms with this lightweight, intense workout. Don’t let the light weights fool you, you’ll still feel the burn!

Try to get through all exercises without taking a break. Remember to keep your shoulder blades relaxed and your neck long.  

Grab a set of lightweight dumbbells, and when I say lightweight, I mean light! Try for 3-5 pounds.

16 reps of every exercise and rest at the end. Complete 2 rounds!!

Straight arm circles to the front: Holding your dumbbells with arms in a T, move your arms forward in a small circular motion.

Straight arm circles to the back: Holding your dumbbells with arms in a T, move your arms backward in a small circular motion.

Elbow bend + Overhead Press: Begin with your elbows at your side bent at 90 degrees, in an arching motion, press the dumbbells overhead

Open/Close and Rotate: Coming to 90 degrees at the elbows, (goal post) bring your arms together so forearms cover your face, then open back to your goal post, and rotate your arms downward

Forward Pulses: Glue your forearms together in front of your face, keep your elbows up and pulse higher

T Bicep Curls: Holding your arms out in a T, bicep curl your dumbbells to your shoulders and back out

Tricep Kickbacks: With a flat back and your feet together, hinge forward at your hips, elbows bent and pointing to the ceiling. From there, extend your arms straight back.

Tricep Pulses: Staying in the same position as the previous exercise, begin with your arms extended and pulse your straight arms up.

*To intensify this exercise series even more, hold a deep sumo squat the entire time!*
