April Arms week 4 and #GoalsCheck

Welcome to week 4 of April Arms! The exercise this week is the Biceps curl, one of my favorites. It’s easy to do and works lots of muscles. Until tonight I thought this exercise was just working my arms but it turns out, if done properly, it can be a total body workout!

(Disclaimer: A professional photographer is not in the blog budget, so you’ll have to excuse the smirk on my face and the blue light from the TV!)

The biceps curl has a few variations, here are a few. This link has more info on form and what muscle groups it works. This video shows proper form.

I use the 5 pound weight at home and 10-12 at the gym.

I try to do the biceps curl at home several times a week when I can’t make it to the gym. I incorporate this into my other arms workouts.

#GoalsCheck Monday!

  • Training: going well, had a great 10 miles on Saturday. I have 11 coming up this weekend and 15 in the next few weeks!
  • Abs and Core: still trucking along, I’m sore today from doing sit ups on the incline bench
  • Weights: I went to the gym yesterday with John and tried out several new machines and the actual bench press, that bar alone is 45 pounds, I’ve definitely got work to do!
  • Water and food: not bad considering I was at camp for 3 days this week.

Today is a rest day for me. Did you #EarnYourShower today? Are you meeting your goals or making new ones?
