Try this… biceps curls
Stand or sit with a dumbbell or weight in each hand. With your back straight, raise your hands to your shoulders, keeping your upper arms by your sides. Repeat 10-15 times.
Try this… wall press
Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and your hands on a wall, just below shoulder height. Slowly bring yourself towards the wall by bending at the elbows and keeping your shoulders down. When you come close to the wall, press out again with your arms. You can make this harder by moving your feet further from the wall. Repeat 10-15 times.
Try this… standing or seated row
Stand with a resistance band around a pole, holding an end in each hand, or sit with the band around your feet. Keeping your shoulders down, pull the resistance band in a rowing motion. Return to the start position. Repeat 10-15 times.
