August Arms Challenge: Overhead Presses

We're moving on to the next move of the August Arms Challenge - overhead presses! These work your deltoids (shoulder muscles), biceps, and triceps. And since you're lifting your weights overhead, they also work your core muscles. All you need is a pair of dumbbells - if you're a beginner, use 2 or 3 pound weights. If you're more advanced, feel free to use 5 or even 8 pound dumbbells. 


To do an overhead press, stand straight with your legs hip-width apart. Hold a weight in each hand at your shoulders with your palms facing forward. Exhale and slowly straighten your arms to lift the weights overhead. Briefly pause, then inhale and slowly lower your weights to the starting position.

Today we're moving on to the next move of the August Arms Challenge - tricep extensions! These will help tone your upper arms and get rid of that wobble.

To do a tricep extension, stand straight with a weight in each hand.  Hold the weights behind your head with your elbows bent and pointed up towards the sky.

August Arms Challenge: Bicep Curl

This month we're doing an arms challenge - these moves will help you get sculpted, sexy arms. All you need is a pair of dumbbells - if you're a beginner, use 2 or 3 pound weights. If you're more advanced, feel free to use 5 or even 8 pound dumbbells. Our first move is bicep curls. We're starting off with just 10.


To do a bicep curl, stand straight with a weight in each hand.  Keep your elbows close to your torso and rotate your palms so they face forward. Exhale and curl your weights to shoulder level while contracting your biceps. Briefly pause and squeeze your biceps, then inhale and slowly lower your weights to the starting position.
