Day 3 Create A Life You Love: Workout Challenge

Workout Challenge

Taking good care of your body is part of Creating A Life You Love.  Frequent workouts are essential to keep your body in good shape. Exercise also increases your endorphins which balances your mind, body, and spirit.  At least three times a week move your body for 30-minutes or longer.  I will give you some ideas as we go through the month.

Biceps and Triceps Workout

Today’s workout challenge is biceps and triceps.  Let’s start with biceps.  Grab a pair of dumbbells that are the appropriate weight for you.  Stand in a split stance which will require your quadriceps and core to work to keep your balance.  Hold a dumbbell in each hand and then do curls.  Start with curling both arms at the same time and then switch it up a bit.  Speed up the pace or slow it down to challenge yourself.  Do three sets of 15 reps.

Now for the triceps.  Change your stance to a squat position.  Once again this requires your quadriceps to be activated at the same time you are doing the triceps exercise.  Hold the dumbbells in your hands, put your hands above your head, and now lower and raise your arms using your triceps.  Do three sets of 15 reps.  Have a look at the video, where I demonstrate both exercises.  Get after it and have fun!
