It’s official, here’s our first #FitFriday video, and we are starting with biceps! Women tend to have stronger legs that men and in most cases prefer working them over upper body. I know leg day is my favorite day.
So I figured we could start with the muscles that women tend to neglect, biceps. No ladies, don’t be afraid of weights or working your arms. You will not start looking like a guy.stead, you start getting leaner and looking toned.
The biceps is a muscle on the front part of the upper arm. The biceps includes a “short head” and a “long head” that work as a single muscle. The biceps is attached to the arm bones by tough connective tissues called tendons. –WebMD
Disclaimer: Sorry we looked like crap. We were actually working out that day. And boy am I glad smell-o-vision is not a thing. After two hours of heavy sweating, it’s wasn’t pretty.
Straight Bar Barbell Curl
Cable Hammer Curl
Handlebar Preacher Curl
Jim recommends to start with 3 to 4 sets of 10 repetitions. He also recommends to use enough weight, that you are struggling during your 8th-9th reps.
Next time we’ll be doing triceps. So stay tuned! And remember, we are in this together, share your progress with us.
Want to take a moment to thank Jeanette Justesen for playing fitness model with us. As well as 9th Street Gym.
