Hope your day off was good, it’s time for three solid days of weights. Three, that’s not so bad, you can make that!
[toggle title=”How much weight?”]When determining your appropriate weight level, follow this schedule. Remember, the goal is to have the weight heavy enough to meet the reps, but not so light it isn’t a challenge
|Light Weight = 20-25 repetitions/set
Medium Weight = 15-20 repetitions/set
Heavy Weight = 10-15 repetitions/set
[toggle title=”Shoulder Press”]
This is another resistance training exercise, using minimal equipment. With a shoulder press, we are targeting upper shoulder strength, as well as your tricep and bicep muscles.
While sitting on a chair, a ball, or a bench, you will hold the dumbbells, bar or other weight bearing items in both hands. One at a time, or together in one ﬂuid motion, you will raise the weight to your shoulders, push upward, slowly release downward, rest, and repeat.
[toggle title=”Chair or Wall Press”]
This is a great exercise for beginners. It is easy, and great for your core and arm muscles. This exercise can be done almost anywhere and uses only your upper body strength so it is excellent for those doing these sets at home or outside.
Lean up against a wall, or with a straight body lean on a chair. Make sure your arms are straight, with a slight bend in the elbow. Slowly bend your arms bringing your chest close to the object, and then slowly push back against the object until your arms are straight again. Start with your arms shoulder width apart, and as you gain strength and stamina with this exercise you can slowly bring your arms closer together.
