Several weeks ago I created a free resource that outlined the mistakes that people tend to make while strengthening their arms. These are mistakes that you could be making right now! If you're not sure, then you need to check out my freebie here: https://hustling-leader-3587.ck.page/cb0970f22c
Having nice looking arms is great but one of the most important things is to continue building muscle and strength. As we get older (I personally just get younger...jokes), we lose muscle. I know right, as a woman you think you have enough to deal with. But it’s true we do lose muscle; therefore, it's important to include strengthening focused workouts in your overall fitness routine.
In my freebie, I talk about shoulders as they play an integral part in overall arm strength. If you want strong shoulders, think about including exercises for the front, side and back of your shoulders. Today, I'm happy to share with you a great exercise to help strengthen the back of your shoulders and upper back. Perform this exercise with or without weights, try to achieve 3 sets of 12 reps or until your muscles fatigue. Check out the instructions and pictures below for guidance.
Enjoy this exercise, may it bring you happiness and strength!
Bent Over Reverse Flys
Stand with your feet hip-width apart with your weights at your side .
Hinge forward at your hips, keep your knees soft (slight bend), engage your core while keeping your back straight. Let your weights hang in front of you, palms facing toward each other
Raise your arms to the side, think about squeezing your shoulder blades
Lower your arms back to the starting position
