GIRLS JUST WANNA HAVE GUNS

With Summer just around the corner I am sure most women can relate to the fear of the tank top and those pesky tuckshop lady arms.

Try out these few exercises for a set of LADY-GUNS in no time!

-Start off at a lower weight, perhaps somewhere in between 2-5kg’s. If you can do 12 repetitions on this weight with ease, go up a weight group.

-Complete 3 sets of 12 repetitions of each exercise.

Dumbell Curls:  Stand up straight with a dumbbell in each hand. Keep your elbows close to your torso and whilst making sure your palms are facing forward curl the weights and contract your biceps.

Tricep Pushdowns: Using a high pulley machine, attach a straight or angled bar and hold with an overhand grip. With the torso straight and upright stance use your triceps to bring the bar down until it touches the front of your thighs. Exhale whilst performing this movement. Bring the bar slowly up and breathe in before doing a second repetition.

Push-Ups:  The push-up is a great exercise as it targets multiple body parts, your arms, chest and core. The narrow grip push-up is the best for target your arms and in particular triceps. This is the standard form of push-up, with your hands a few inches apart from one another underneath your chest and through using your arms push your body up and down.
