Hammer Bicep Curls

If you don't have dumbbells, get innovative - grab a gallon jug, put a few cups of water in that bad boy and get to work! Where do you begin? I started with three sets of ten, which means I would do ten of these moves at a time, three different times with maybe 30 [...]

Overhead Dumbbell Press

Need another exercise for those gallon jugs? Try the overhead dumbbbell press. I love the definition these helped me develop in my shoulders and chest as well as my arms - I'd never seen this on my body before, and I was excited to finally have it. Again, if you can only do a couple [...]

What I'm seeking to do is present you with a ton of different exercises that you can try in the comfort of your own home, maybe even your own bed! I know that my biggest thing was getting over how silly I felt I might look trying to workout at home. As a friend said, [...]

Tricep Dips

By | 2013-12-23T10:46:55+00:00 December 23rd, 2013|Arms|0 Comments

If you take a look at this exercise, you'll see just what parts of the arm it works. The tricep is, essentially, the "back" of the arm, for lack of a better phrase. If you do a few of these, it'll help define that area that often tends to look like little more than a [...]

The Importance of Building A Home Workout Routine

A big part of my ability to workout was stripping myself of excuses. I run a business. I don't have time to get dressed, throw my hair back, go to the gym, and spend an hour. That's like.. two hours worth of  time I could be spending on my business! I'm a single parent.. I [...]

Dumbbell Bicep Curl

I know the girl in the video is using maybe 4 times as much weight as I use right now - maybe when I "grow up," I'll be more into lifting heavy! - but a 5lb (or even a 3lb) weight will suffice for a beginner, and for someone who's simply trying to make use [...]

Yoga: Firebird

An interesting thing about Yoga is that it forces you to focus on yourself - you cannot, in my opinion, successfully do the poses without fully focusing on yourself and what you are asking your body to do. Because of that, I've learned a new appreciation for myself... because that ability to spend time thinking [...]

I'm not even gonna lie - this is a sequence that I cannot get down pat. I'm six feet tall, one hundred jhglfdgjhsjhsgl pounds, and quite frankly... balancing all of that on my elbows simply does not feel like something I'm ever going to be able to accomplish. That doesn't mean that I give up [...]
