I’m back with a new strength move for you all — a “compound” strength move! This is one of my favorite moves to do at the gym because it works your legs and arms at the same time 🙂 Efficiency is key, people!
Weighted Triceps Lunge
1) You’ll need weights for this exercise — I hold two weights in my hands that are each between 5 and 8 pounds, depending how hardcore I’m feeling 😉 You can also just hold one heavier (between 10 and 15 pounds) weight.
2) Stand with your legs spread apart, one in front of the other, preparing to do a lunge. Lower your arms behind your head, holding the weights.
3) As you lower yourself down into a lunge, raise your arms above your head to work your triceps at the same time.
4) Lift yourself back up, lowering your arms again into the start position. Repeat about 10 to 12 times, then switch and do the other side!
And… I made another nerdy video for you all demonstrating it!! Hehe. Sadly this time I don’t have a gorgeous Florida backdrop like I did for my last fitness video! And please excuse how totally awkward I am in these things 😉
So what do you think?? Will you give the move a try? 🙂 Stay tuned… I have two more compounds moves coming soon to a blog near you!
