In this workout, Coach Nicole will lead you through a series of seated exercises that will help you tone your entire upper body and improve your flexibility.
Why is it important to inhale on the up motion and exhale on the lower motion? I know I am doing it wrong on the breathing aspect, but does it make that big of a difference as long as I am doing the movements as shown?
Thanks for a good short workout. This is good for when I am short on time.
Thank you so much for this video! I got a concussion about 6 months ago and hit my head so hard I knocked my shoulder out of alignment a bit. I went to a chiropractor many times - he put my should back into place but the creaking in my shoulders never stopped. After doing this video one time - the creaking stopped. Now I enjoy doing it regularly and increasing weights to keep my shoulders, arms and back more strengthened. Thank you! :)
Thanks for this. It says "seated workout," but early on it seemed like I'd maintain better form (with 5lbs weights) by standing. The chair didn't seem to add benefit, although it is important to have something for everyone, and lots of people want or need seated exercises. In comparison, the chair workouts for core and leg really benefit from using a chair because they require moving the lower muscles in a concentrated way. .I don't mind if someone else explains the benefits of using a chair - what I'm missing out on -- so let me know. i'm sure to come back to try this one again, sitting or not.
Thank you for sharing this video
First time doing this, couldn't do it weights so I continued without them. I still felt the stretch. I will improve in time. Felt good
These are great workouts but if you are wanting to get rid of your flabby arms, you need to concentrate on your triceps more with heavier weights and tricep dips. Look specifically for triceps exercises on youtubes. There are heaps of them.
Have had surgery on myshoulder and this helps. Thanks.
Doing this for a long time my bat wings have not lessened but I cant use weights
Hope these get rid of my bat wings.
I have back problems, so this exercise was good for me.
Great workout! Thanks, Coach!
