Welcome back to the Cave Cam. I'm Coach PJ here at CPJ Fitness in San Diego, California for eHow.com. Today, I'm going to show you exercises for lifting cans of soup. Okay so today I'm going to show you some exercises you can do with a can. If you don't have any free weights at home. So I've got here two cans of spinach which we all know spinach is healthy for you. So I'm going to show you some arm exercises you can do with them. The first one is curls and you want to bring the elbows up to right angles and you're not moving the shoulders, you're not doing this thing where the shoulders are moving. You isolate it so that just the elbow joint is moving only and there's your curls. The transitional movement on that is you can bring them up to shoulder pressing and these cans are just under a pound so it's just enough resistance for those who are just getting started. The other one you can do with these is a lateral raise up to shoulder height and down. For those of you who have shoulder issues you can go a little lower if you have to and those of you who don't have restricted shoulder issues at all you can go all the way up if you want. Just showing you a variation. The other motion is flexion with the shoulder coming up front and again if you have shoulder issues and you don't have to go up as high ideally you can go to shoulder height. If you don't have any shoulder issues, you can go all the way up to the top. Once again I'm Coach P.J. at CPJ Fitness in San Diego, California for eHow.com, and we just showed you exercises for lifting cans of soup.
