I was asked by a dear reader of mine to film an arms workout so I decided that today’s workout video would be a full arms workout that targets four parts of the arms. The four muscle parts that I chose to include are the biceps, shoulders, lats and triceps as they each contribute to the attractive appearance of sculpted arms.
The workout is performed using just a mini-band and takes roughly fifteen to twenty minutes to complete. The benefits of working out with a mini-band is that it provides enough tension that your muscles can be built provided that you engage them for around 3 sets of 10-12 repetitions as is displayed in the following video.
Here is the video, following the workout that was filmed:
Warm Up Sequence:
Tricep Stretch: Hold each side for 10-20 seconds.
Arm Swing: Perform for 20 seconds total.
Shoulder Stretch: Hold each side for 10-20 seconds.
Lateral Pull down: Perform 3 sets of 10-12 repetitions
Note: This exercise targets both the back and biceps.
Side Lateral Raise: Perform 3 sets of 10-12 repetitions
Note: This exercise works both shoulders and lats.
Tricep Extension: Perform 3 sets of 10-12 repetitions.
Tip: Make sure to contract abs throughout movement.
Bicep Curl: Perform 3 sets of 10-12 repetitions.
Tip: Isolate biceps by contracting muscle slowly and focussing on using proper form.
Take a 30-45 second rest between sets if needed.
