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:
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.
I started with my right arm in front of my forehead and my left arm bent back.
Then I slowly extended both arms and held before returning to the start.
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!)
