I like to do a variety of exercises, and so these are some I do at home. This is part of my life that is just as important as Eating for optimal nutrition.
I think my No. 1 All-Time BEST for weightlifting is the Arnold Press:
This is incredible AND, I like the fast results. She says in the video this is good for shoulders. Hooooooold on, there, Lady. This works the entire arm. Killer tris! If you’re like me and don’t like doing a ton of various arm stuff, AND, your nemesis is the triceps area, then this may for you 🙂 Best results I’ve ever gotten from an exercise for my entire arms. Add this one to your routine. Try it!
Next, Jumprope. I have an adjustable one I like, Lifeline’s Power beaded jumprope. It’s nice to be able to adjust it to various sizes; but it’s not a necessary feature. Any jump rope will do! And, they are very inexpensive. This is so good to get your heart rate up and really burn calories. Do a few sets and see if you’re heart is not bumpety-bumpin.’ Put some music on and do it rhythmically 🙂 Lots of fun. You can do these outside, too and get your all-important Vitamin D! Or, how about these for rhythm?
Thirdly, I like to keep my 15-lb weights at the bottom of the stairs: Every time I go up I have to carry them. Then I have to carry them back down, of course ;). So each trip, I’m lugging 30-lbs total, and I’m getting at least a bit of a metabolism revving. I sometimes will do various lifts, like pressups or biceps curls with them while climbing; or just carrying them with arms at my sides (especially going down).
Okay, 2 bonus ones 😀 : I have a bar I put over a bathroom doorway so I do a set each time I use that bathroom 🙂 so that helps. And, again, doesn’t have to fancy-shmancy expensive! Just make sure it’s secure.
What exercises do you do at home or inexpensively?
