ARMED AND READY FOR THE HOLIDAYS

Arm & Ready for the Holidays
by Angie Miller
Whether it’s summer time fun or holiday festivities, we all want to bare arms that are strong and sculpted. This upper body workout gives you three exercises to strengthen and tone your biceps and triceps, along with interesting variations that challenge your balance and work your core.
Tip: Remember that exercise bands offer variable resistance, which means that the resistance changes throughout the range of motion. This keeps the movement dynamic and allows you to create the amount resistance you need. If you need the work to be harder, step further away from the anchored band so the pull is greater.
Tip: Make sure that your band doesn’t have any “rebound,” when you return to your start position. This means that you don't want there to be any slack in the band no matter where you are in the movement.
Equipment Needed: Resistance Band, (as well as a Sliding Glass Door or an Anchor for a Doorway).
Wishing you lots of joy and good health during the holidays~ Sincerely, Angie
