Workout Instructions:

Bicep Curls:
  • Position two dumbbells to sides, palms facing in, arms straight.
  • With elbows to sides, raise one dumbbell and rotate forearm until forearm is vertical and palm faces shoulder. 
  • Lower to original position and repeat with opposite arm. Continue to alternate between sides.
Tricep Kickbacks:
  • Kneel over bench with arm supporting body. Grasp dumbbell. Position upper arm parallel to floor.
  • Extend arm until it is straight. Return and repeat. Continue with opposite arm.
Tricep Dips
  • Hoist yourself up onto a bench, chair or step as long as it is stable and secure to take your body weight.
  • Hands should be shoulder width apart fingers facing forward and elbows pointing backwards with a slight bend in the elbows.
  • Legs extended out in front of you with a slight bend in the knee.
  • Slowly lower your body until your shoulder joints are below your elbows.
  • Push back up until your elbows are nearly straight but do not lock them out.
Push Ups
  • Lie on the floor face down and place your hands about 36 inches apart while holding your torso up at arms length.
  • Next, lower yourself downward until your chest almost touches the floor as you inhale.
  • Now breathe out and press your upper body back up to the starting position while squeezing your chest.
  • After a brief pause at the top contracted position, you can begin to lower yourself downward again for as many repetitions as needed.
  • Start by getting into a press up position.
  • Bend your elbows and rest your weight ono your forearms and not on your hands.
  • Your body should form a straight line from shoulders to ankles.
  • Engage your core by sucking your belly button into your spine.
  • Hold this position for the prescribed time.

Worried about getting sweaty? 

During my workouts, I rely on two key products to keeping me feeling fresh and to stop the sweating. My personal picks are Degree MotionSense Fresh Energy Anti-Perspirant & Deodorant and Degree MotionSense Fresh Energy Dry Spray Anti-Perspirant. I love the smell of these and so does my husband!
