Start light until you master the form. Hold a dumbbell in each hand with your arm bent, as in the top of a biceps curl, so your palms are facing you. Now, instead of pushing straight up, spread your arms to each side laterally, then press your arms up and twist your hands so your palms face forwa...
Lateral Arm Circles
Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and extend your arms parallel to the floor. Circle your arms forward using small controlled motions, gradually making the circles bigger until you feel a stretch in your triceps.
Reverse the direction of the circles after some time.
Press into your palms to lift your body and slide forward just far enough that your behind clears the edge of the chair. Lower yourself until your elbows are bent between 45 and 90 degrees. Control the movement throughout the range of motion. Push yourself back up slowly until your arms are almos...
Overhead Tricep Extension
Start standing with your feet shoulder width apart and dumbbells held in front of you. Raise the dumbbells above your head until your arms are stretched out straight. Slowly lower the weights back behind your head, being careful not to flare your elbows out too much. Once your forearms move beyon...
Stand with the bar in the front squat rack position, holding it with your hands slightly wider than shoulder-width apart. Keep your elbows as high as you can as you lower into a squat. Keep your knees wide apart and your heels down. Lower until your thighs are at least parallel with the ground. D...
Start standing with a dumbbell in each hand. Your elbows should rest at your sides and your forearms should extend out in front of your body. Your knees should stay slightly bent and your belly button should draw into the spine. Bring the dumbbells all the way up to your shoulders by bending your...
Lateral Arm Raise
Stand tall, a dumbbell in each hand. Arms are at your sides, palms facing in. Position your feet roughly hip-distance apart. Check your posture—roll your shoulders back, engage your core, and look straight ahead. Raise your arms simultaneously just a couple inches out to each side and pause. This...
Bent Over Lateral Raise
Lean forward, keeping your back flat. Hold your dumbbells with your knuckles pointing outwards. Raise up, slow and controlled, and bring back down.
Lift the weights upward while inhaling. Your arms are extended, palms facing down, with a slight bend in the elbows to reduce the stress on the joints. Pause briefly when your arms are horizontal to the floor. Lower the dumbbells to the starting position (at the thighs) with a slow and controlled...
Lie down on your back. Pick up a weight that you're comfortable with, with your feet flat on the floor. Hold the weights with a hammer grip, almost like you're going to crush your skull. Put your arms up, bending at the elbow, to right beside your eyes. Be very careful not to drop the weights.
You can do this seated or standing. Keep your back nice and flat. Bend your elbows up and out, keeping your arms nice and straight with your elbows close into your body.
Around the World
Keep your wrists open, starting down around your thighs. Keep your wrists facing the front of you, meeting at the top, and coming down to the bottom. You can do this seated or standing with a light weight, no weights or whatever you would prefer.
