Exercise of The Week: Bicep curl to Overhead Press
This week we are going to focus on our arms. Previously, I have written about the basic bicep curl but this time we are taking it a step further and adding in an overhead press. I recommend starting of with a light set of weights, around 5-10 lbs and increasing as you progress. This exercise is very easy and can be done in the comfort of your own home. If you choose to do this in front of your television that is ok but make sure that you are focusing on your form…you do not want to hurt yourself! So how do you do it?
Start with your feet shoulder width apart and your arms at your sides. Your hands should be holding the dumbbell with your palms facing forward like in A. Bending your arms at the elbow curl your arms upward toward your shoulders, you should look like B. Now press your arms over your head until your arms are straight, making sure that your palm are now facing inward. You should look like C. Go back to the starting position, that is one rep. Continue this exercise for 2 sets of 10 reps. That is it, it’s pretty easy.
