move of the week: the wall sit + bicep curl
The Wall Sit + Bicep Curl
This week’s exercise is a combination move, which means that you combine multiple moves into one, making your workout more efficient. Why work just your quadriceps when you can also work your biceps?!
Step 1: Stand against a wall with your feet about hips width apart. Keep your arms at your sides, holding dumbbells.
Step 2: Bend your legs to approximately ninety degrees, making sure that your knees stay behind your toes.
Step 3: While maintaining your bent legs, perform a bicep curl.
Step 4: Bring arms down to sides to complete one rep. Make sure to stay lowered in the wall sit while performing all reps of the bicep curls!
Recommended number of reps: 10+ bicep curls, keeping your movements slow and controlled. Your legs may become a little shaky while sitting in the wall sit, but that’s totally normal. It’s showing you that your body is working hard!
This combination move will help keep your workout efficient by challenging your arms and legs at the same time.
