Hi, this is Stephany with Elevate Fitness, and today we're gonna talk about arm toning exercises with 5 pound weights. Now, some exercises that you can do with the 5 pound weight to help your tones is gonna be bicep curl. You can do one or both, alternating, but you want to make sure that whenever you're doing a bicep curl your chest stays upright, your stomach stays drawn in to the space, and you try to keep your shoulders back. Try to avoid swaying at all costs. Another good workout that you can use with a 5 pound weight is going to be tricep extension. So using one weight at a time, or you can even do both, bending over, extending your arms, and then bringing them back in towards the body. You want to make sure that your shoulders are relaxed and they stay back, and again, chest sticking out, stomach drawn into the spine, you're going to extend the arms, and bring them in. Now, if you want to work on your shoulders in building muscle in that area, you can do a shoulder press. Either alternating or both, basically bring the weights above your head, and then come back down to the shoulders. Have your elbow at a 90 degree angle, so coming up and down, you'll feel this right in the middle of the shoulder. Now, although it is really important to incorporate weight training into your workout, you want to make sure that once 5 pounds become very easy for you to do, you increase your weight. Go up higher, because building muscle is gonna be what helps you burn fat more effectively. This is Stephany, with Elevate Fitness, and we just talked about arm toning exercise with five pound weights. Get lifted!
