No Chicken Wings Here!

Oh – wrong kind (but these look sort-of delicious)!

Anyway,  for my 43 today I worked my triceps (chicken wings).  When I was in high school (ages ago!) I had a teacher who every time she wrote on the chalkboard (I told you it was a long time ago!!!) her arms did this wavey thing.  (She really wasn’t overweight.)  At the time I knew very little about fitness and toning, etc. but I remember telling myself, daily, that I would never have arms like that!  Now I know that for my teacher it was just a complete lack of toning (ever) and I try to spend plenty of time on my triceps!!!

I used this  awesome band to work my triceps:

Turbo Fire Band

I love this band – it has so many uses!  Plus, it is portable and easy to take when I travel!

 

 

 

 

I wanted to get maximum resistance with the band so I choked way up on it.

choke way up on the band (maybe don't slouch, though!)

I started with my right arm in front of my forehead and my left arm bent back.

Start (must look startled!)

Then I slowly extended both arms and held before returning to the start.

Pull (now you should look completely bored!)

The first 20 or so weren’t too bad.  By the time I got to 30, my arms were on fire.  The last few were complete agony!  It was great!  This was another 2 setter – 43 with my right arm and 43 with the left.

Yesterday afternoon I wrapped presents and I think that I’m to the point where I’m completely done with everything!!  Now I’m ready to enjoy this season and my family! (well maybe a few last minute things – plus meal planning, grocery shopping….OK, sort-of done with everything!)

Happy Sunday!
