FOLLOW ALONG ARMS

FOLLOW ALONG ARMS

Mary:

What's going on guys, I'm back with another follow along workout video for you. Today's focus is going to be arms. I call it sleeveless arms. Now a lot of people, actually, a lot of ladies typically, we forget to work on our upper body specifically arms because, for a lot of us, the arms, biceps and triceps work, might be a little bit more difficult for us if we're a little bit weaker in our upper body versus our lower body. So the importance of specifically working your biceps and triceps individually is really, really important because they really do so much for us and they support a lot of movements that we do. So anything you're going to be doing with a back movement, obviously you're going to use a bit of bicep work. Similarly with chest, you're going to use some tricep work and a lot of your shoulder movements will also use some tricep and bicep for supporting muscle groups.

Mary:

So it's really important that we build the strength, really strength and endurance, in our biceps and triceps, so today's only focused around those. Now you can absolutely do this workout at home like I am, or I can do it at the gym. It's totally fine. The equipment that I've got for today, I have the long loop bands. I've got a lighter one and a more moderate one. And with those you will need a door anchor. We're going to attach it just to the top of the door. It's going to be just for one of the movements, but you will need it. And then you also need a set of dumbbells, whichever weight increment you really want, this is going to be for bicep curls. Then you're going to need also is a single dumbbell. If you really want to you can get a whole another set, but you will need a single dumbbell heavier than the set that you have of dumbbells. So for me, I've got a set of fives and a single 10 pounds dumbbell.

Mary:

I typically like to do biceps and triceps in a super set, so where I work one and then I immediately work the next, back and forth, before I continue doing the same movement. I personally like that a little bit more. It's a term of muscle confusion. So while you're working one movement, another one is resting, and then vice versa. So while this one is resting, the other one is working. So you're constantly getting a good stimulus. So you're constantly getting a good pump and blood flow all over, while, obviously getting a good pump. So without further ado, let's get started.

All right guys, so there you have it. That was just over nine minutes of just arm work for biceps and triceps. Now the importance of these could not be stressed enough. It really is important to include bicep and tricep work specifically in a workout program. And you want to include a workout like this in one of your other days. If you want to attack a... I'm sorry. Add this at the end of a shoulder workout if you really want to, you totally can. What I would suggest is using these movements at the end of a workout, just so your biceps and triceps aren't fatigued while you're using them for other muscle groups, for example, chest work, or back, or shoulder work. It would be really important to kind of have them not fatigued while you're using those and then just kind of finish off with movements like this.

Mary: 

That's actually exactly what I do with my training. I wanted to just give you something that you can add on or just do this and have that be something that you add into your own workouts. Now make sure you also are doing things that are going to warm yourself up, get yourself going, maybe do a little bit of light cardio before you get started. Always make sure you're doing something that gets your blood pumping before you actually get into certain movements. Never workout a cold muscle. It is very dangerous. I can't stress that enough. Please make sure you're getting a warm up in before you get started with anything.

Mary:

But again, a workout like this can absolutely be done at home if you have that equipment, dumbbells and some bands, it's really all you need. Or you can do it at the gym and use some of the cables that they have there, or dumbbells and barbells. There are so many different variations.

Mary:

I really hope you enjoyed this video and I hope you enjoyed this workout. Like I said, I really enjoy doing these follow along workouts. I think they're great. I think they're good for me. I think they're good for everyone else and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. So if you did, please be sure to give this video a thumbs up. If you didn't like it you can always like it anyways, it means a lot to me. Hit the notification button for when I post any new videos. And as always remember to subscribe, join the tribe.
