Exercise of The Week: Alternating Shoulder Press & Twist

twistThis week we are going to give our arms a nice workout! This is another lovely exercise that you can do in your home without the use of fancy equipment. I do recommend that is you are just starting out try beginning with a 5 pound weight, you can always add more once you are used to this exercise. It is a pretty easy exercise to do but pretty effective.

Start off by placing your feet shoulder width apart. Grab your dumbbells and raise your hands to shoulder level with your elbows bent. You should now look like A. Now you are going to twist your torso to the right while you press the dumbbell  in your left hand upward at a slight angle. You should now look like B. Reverse the movement and go back to starting position and repeat this move on the opposite side. That is one rep. See, not that complicated! Nothing to it. Add 2 sets of 10 reps to your workout and you will be golden.
