Exercise of The Week: Triceps swing

jiggly-arms-400x400Happy Wednesday everyone! This week we are going to focus on our arms! I love finding exercises that you can do with a simple set of weights. I have nothing against going to the gym but sometimes money prevents a gym membership. That is why I try to find exercises that I can do at home. This exercise is great because you don’t need a ton of room or fancy equipment…unless you consider a 5 pound dumbbell fancy equipment. So how do you do it?

Well, it is pretty easy! Start by holding a 5 pound dumbbell in each hand. Lay down with your feet on floor and your knees bent and the dumbbells above your head. You should look almost like a straight line. Now, keeping your arms straight you are going to raise  your left arm over chest. Make sure that your right arm stays over head and remains a couple of inches off the ground. Lower your left arm back to starting position.  Do 10-15 reps with left arm, then switch sides.  That is all there is to it. Try doing 2-3 sets to begin with and you can always increase from there.
