Do this ten times ten reps using your right arm and then repeat on using your left arm. Repeat the set five times, so that's 50 curls per arm in total. You should stand with your feet hip width apart and keep your back straight as you perform each curl; don't create momentum by tilting your hips backwards or swinging your arms to move the weight. Instead lift and slow the weight slowly, in a controlled manner. If you find yourself needing to swing to get through a set then your weight is too heavy. Keep the same stance your had for your bicep curls, but this time hold the dumbbell vertically instead of horizontally and start with the weight at hip height.
Your palms will be facing each other rather than the ground or ceiling. Once again in a slow and controlled manner, lift the weight up to your shoulder and then lower it back down.
Do this ten times with your right arm and then ten times with your left arm. Stand with your feet hip width apart and your knees slightly bent. Hold the dumbbells as you would for a hammer curl but instead of bending at your elbow and lifting towards your shoulders in front of you, raise your arms from yours sides to to shoulder height so that your arms and body form a T shape. Your posture should not change; if you find yourself hunching your shoulders or your elbows bend excessively to relieve the weight then drop down a kg.
Keeping your shoulders back will help maintain your posture. Because we're moving both arms at the same time so we're going to twenty reps, five times over. Get into a high plank position shown above, but without the dumbbell in your resting hand unless you want to make the exercise harder. Starting with your right arm, pick up one of your dumbbells at a ninety-degree angle and lift it, pulling your elbows upwards towards the ceiling. You should pull until your weight is in line with your chest. Do this ten times and then switch arms, transferring your weight to be supported by your right side down.
While one side of your body will support you, you should use your core to yourself as central as possible. Holding the dumbbell above and behind your head with both hands, bend at the elbow to lower the weight. Only your forearms should move; your upper arms brachium should stay locked to the side of your head.
Because we're using both hands together do 20 reps in each of the five sets, changing which hand is at the top of the weight with each set. For this next tricep exercise each arm will have its own weight, but we'll still move both at the same time. Lie on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor as if you are about to start crunches.
Lift your arms directly above you so that your arms are extended straight above your head. Then, bending at the elbow as with the tricep extension, slowly lower the weights to the floor either side of your head. Friction is. At a time when you can buy a high-tech indoor cycling bike to have in your house, or install a smart mirror that streams workouts, it's easy to forget. In the summertime, you probably want to spend as much time outside as possible, meaning the gym membership you ambitiously signed up for in January won't.
Apple News push notifications. Laundry day. Sports bras. What do these four things have in common? Chances are, you have a love-hate relationship. Resistance bands are often praised for being these magical, strength-building, affordable, apartment-friendly workout tools — and they absolutely are. Make sure to stand tall with your core engaged and shoulders back. STAND with your knees slightly bent and dumbbells in front of your body, palms facing you. RAISE your arms out in front of your body until they are parallel with the floor and in line with your shoulders. Slowly lower back down to start.

Make sure to maintain a slight bend in your knees and keep your core engaged throughout. New workout and it looks so awesome!
Do it without the mini band or do the spider woman push up from the Pura Vida workout? I was thinking the same thing! I will probably start off doing them without but if I feel like I need more of a work out will add spider woman push ups because I love doing those! If you have a resistance band, tie that in a knot by the handles, making a small enough loop so that you can loop it over your arms like the mini band.
Yes i think next time i will also just replace that move with spider woman push ups. Prefer it. Love that the Tuesday workouts are being posted early enough for us on the other side of the globe.
Hi Karina,Katrina. I do your workouts already 5 months and I see the results but i have a question. I am 14 years old,I do my exercises with 3kg weights each arm,will doing weights stop my height. I mean will I continue growing up normally. Please answer!!!
Just be sure you have the right posture as our trainers in every exercise ; I also started doing weights with your age, if you do it properly is only going to help you to grow healthy and beautiful ;. If you have any questions regarding working out or eating well, please talk to your doctor!!!
Thank you for the answer. Weights helped me a lot. Amis — what an adorable question. Your height is genetic, and based more on the height of your parents and grandparents… You are 14, so you will keep growing for a few more years. Thank you for the answers. Lifting weights that are too heavy in a growing body with open growth plates can affect your growth potential.
So what does that mean for you?
Well as long as you avoid competitive weight lifting, power lifting, body building, and maximal lifts until you reach physical and skeletal maturity, you should be okay. These are the recommendations of the American Academy of Pediatrics.
