Workout Wednesdays: Building the Biceps
Looking to get rid of the flab on your arms? Check out a few of these exercises to help you get started.
Bicep Curl. This exercise can be done while standing or sitting. Make sure your back is straight and your core is engaged. Using dumbbells, bend the arm toward your shoulder keeping your elbow close to your waist. Alternate arms and repeat for three sets of 20.
Cross Body Hammer. You should be standing straight with your arms at your side and a dumbbell in each hand. Palms should be facing inward. Curl the dumbbell of your right arm to your left shoulder and hold for one second. Lower the dumbbell and then repeat with the opposite arm.
Arm Flexion. Standing up straight near a all, stretch your arm out so that your hand touches the wall. Your arm should form a 90 degree angle with the wall. Cross your legs as you stand; keeping the one closest to the wall behind the other. Lean toward the wall forming a 90 degree angle then slowly push yourself back to a standing position. Repeat for five sets of 8 on each side.
Bicep Stretch. Stand up straight. Clasp your hands behind your back. Straighten your arms then rotate your arms so your palms are facing upward. Raise your arms until you feel the stretch in your biceps.
