Arm exercises: Part I Now for strengthening our arms we are going to use cuff links or lift weights of 0.25 lbs. and as you feel stronger with cuff links of 0.5 lbs. When moving the arms, the muscles of the chest and back move and strengthen as well. Always remember to stretch and synchronize with breathing.
- Stand up with the arms hanging on both sides holding the cuff links. Raise slowly both arms until forming a cross and stretch taking the chest up. Afterwards, get the arms down to its original position. Slow movements, synchronized with breathing.
- Standing up, very straight, get your feet together hanging on both sides. Raise the arms slowly until forming a cross and stretch taking the chest up. The, bend both arms by the elbows forwards, keeping both arms at the same level we had them while making the cross. Open the arms slowly in cross. Go back forward until getting both cuff links together and keep doing that for 10 times. Synchronize with the breathing we already know.
- Keep standing up, feet together with arms hanging on both sides. Raise slowly both arms until forming a cross and stretch, taking the chest up. Then, bend your arms by the elbows until the shoulders, getting the right cuff link with the right shoulder and the left cuff link with the left shoulder. Open the flexion of the elbow and go back to the cross. Continues the flexions until completing 10 of them. Do not forget the breathing.
